There must be some principles in place:
1. She has a certain, reasonable time to accuse, after which it’s over.
2. This particularly applies to anyone being appointed to high office – the time for her accusations is early, not in the final leg.
3. If she has borne false witness, she must have either the punishment he would have received or the equivalent of it.
While anyone guilty of such things must go down and while the female must be heard up to a reasonable time, both parties need reasonable protection under law, if innocent.
