Women Against Rape (WAR) are taking a campaign to the House of Commons to end what they think is an aggressive pursuit of such cases. 109 women have been prosecuted in the UK in last 5 years - 98 of which have been convicted for perverting the course of justice.
"A US law professor, who will be speaking at the Commons, said the UK’s stance on false allegations is more aggressive than in countries such as the United States, Canada and Australia. Prof Lisa Avalos, of the University of Arkansas, said false allegations in the US were dealt with as a misdemeanour offence, not a felony – and most women were not jailed if found guilty... 'The UK has an unusual approach and I think their approach violates human rights', she said."
Ruining a person's reputation, and life is a misdemeanour? Pursuing criminals violates their human rights? (Are misdemeanours statistics even compiled?)
"Lisa Longstaff, from War, said: 'It’s appalling that when over 90% of rapists are getting away with it and two women a week are killed by partners or ex-partners, women who report violence are being imprisoned'."
No Lisa, women who pervert the course of justice get imprisoned. A shining example of hamster logic.
