Britain’s top prosecutor sparks outrage by saying many men cleared of rape have not been falsely accused

Article here. Excerpt:

'Alison Saunders, Director of Public Prosecutions maintained that only a small minority of allegations were deemed false or malicious out of thousands.

The 56-year-old highlighted the difference between a defendant being found innocent and an allegation being "false or malicious".

Speaking to John Humphrys on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, she said: "Just because there has been an acquittal, does not mean to say there has been a false allegation.

"It means the defendant has been found innocent, but that does not necessarily make it a false allegation.

"When we did some research we looked at more than 5,500 cases and found only a very, very small minority where we thought there was a false or malicious allegation.'
