Petition Action

People who knowingly make false accusations / allegations should receive the same punishment that their victim would have received if guilty.

Additional Information

Put quite simply, making false allegations is a form of harassment. Even if they are never tried for the alleged crimes, the victim's life can be seriously impacted.

It can seriously affect a person's social life, family life, and career prospects. Sadly people tend to believe rumours, and sometimes even add to them.

A trial, and even a conviction based upon false allegations is surely one of the most serious miscarriages of justice.
