Yet another trial has been stopped due to lack of evidence and some poor man has had it hanging over him for 2 years.
I would be interested to hear your opinions on whether it is time to name those who make the accusation or make the accused anonymous too. I completely understand why it was decided not to name the accusers when that decision was made but nowadays, when so many celebrities are speaking out very openly and there is no longer any sort of stigma attached to making rape and sexual assault claims would it not be fair to name the accuser? If not, what about when their claim is found to be false, name them then and charge with an appropriate charge?
It does seem harsh that a man can have his life ruined by false accusations, his name bandied about in the media and the woman who has made the false claim gets off scot free.
I must make it clear that I don't actually know anyone in this situation.
