Rape suspects may be given (temporary) anonymity [Guardian]

The UK government announces a half measure. They now acknowledge that false rape accusations are a problem and can destroy lives, so their response is to allow men to have “their identity concealed up until the time they are charged”.

This is no good. This still means that mean falsely accused and charged will be hurt. The only measure is complete anonymity removed only if the accused is convicted of rape.
