False allegations of assault can and do happen
Whilst the term “assault” covers a multitude of potential offences, ranging from common assault, assault by beating, causing actual bodily harm (“ABH”) through to wounding and causing grievous bodily harm (“GBH”) with intent, common themes are shared amongst them all:
- The accused are not infrequently mistakenly identified as an attacker;
- The accused have been arrested even when they acted in self-defence or the defence of another;
- The accused have been prosecuted solely because of false accusations based on a complainant’s or witness’s malicious lies.
