This is what you have:

款 Sum of money / Paragraph or clause / Section or article in a legal document
澄 Clear or transparent / To purify or clarify
義 Justice / Rectitude / Right Decision

I can't quite make sense of it. As far as I can tell, it's just a list of words with no proper grammar in Chinese or Japanese.

I searched for this phrase on Chinese and Japanese Google, and there was not a single result for this (that is very rare, as even obscure phrases have a few results, and some have millions).

There's no bad meaning here, but the intended meaning is far from clear.
