Guilty when accused
SIR – When did it become the norm to treat an accused person as guilty until proven innocent? Surely it is up to the accuser to prove guilt rather than the person being accused to prove innocence.
Trial by media is unfair. History shows how the lives of those falsely accused are ruined.
Before we take action against anyone accused, we must let due process occur. Let those that are guilty be suitably punished, but let’s make sure they are guilty before we condemn them. Natalie Shilling
