False allegation­s


FORMeR Acting Met Commission­er Sir Stephen house has strongly denied referring to the bulk of rape cases as ‘regretful sex’, calling this descriptio­n ‘abhorrent’ (Mail).

however, it is true false allegation­s of rape are sometimes made, for this reason or others including anger, jealousy, mental health issues or to seek financial compensati­on.

Until cases in which false allegation­s are made receive as much attention as genuine cases, those wrongly accused will continue to suffer, as will their families. This is unfair both on them and on those who have been raped or sexually assaulted.
