False allegations: a Spiked article by Barbara Hewson

Following on quickly from the news of Kato Harris being cleared of rape comes this excellent article for Spiked by Barbara Hewson: False allegations: a stain on justice.


Barbara cites several examples of innocent people whose lives were ruined – and in some cases ended – by false accusations of rape, and there are more elsewhere on this site.

If a false allegation of rape, sexual abuse etc. is levelled against you or someone you know, there are organisations who are able to help, such as FASO (False Allegations Support Organisation) and FACT (Falsely Accused Carers and Teachers). Full details can be found on the Links page.
