Actually I think they should focus on both issues that's why I posted what i did. I think destroying someone's career, stressing them to the max for a year or two, potentially damaging relationships with their spouse, costing them a lot of money defending themselves amongst other issues by falsely accusing someone to make a few quid is a serious issue also.
Agree with this (heading to see a doctor later;-)).
The problem is that the offense itself has such a vilified status now in our society that anyone that is in any way associated with any kind of sex crime or paedo is automatically ostracised by a lot of people whether they are guilty or not and can have their lives ruined in a way that would never happen if they were being falsely accused of another crime. Those that accuse falsely should be subject to very strict penalties and always named in my opinion.
Just because someone is found not guilty, doesn't mean they didn't commit the crime.
Penalties for people complaining but not resulting in convictions would lead to less complaints and accusations.
Which would mean more crimes.
What I do believe is people who are arrested for sex crimes should not be named at the very least until they are charged. And personally think they shouldn't be named until they are convicted.
Outrageous that Cliff Richard has been named without even being arrested!
