A Cleveland Police spokesperson said: “False allegations of rape or sexual assault can have a very damaging impact on the person falsely accused. Such cases are dealt with robustly and those falsely accused should feel confident that police will work closely with the CPS to prosecute these cases wherever there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest to do so.
“Nationally, figures show only 3% of rape allegations are false.
Complete nonsense. Prosecutions of people making false rape allegations are rare, but false rape allegations themselves aren’t. William Collins estimates in The Empathy Gap that 77% of allegations made to the police are false.
