Fair enough, but it seems an odd turn of phrase. An accusation will be confirmed only after due process, not before any investigation has been carried out, surely?
Yes, you got a point. Whether an accusation was false or true will be decided by a court.
BUT - at least here - if it's proven that someone accused someone else falsly (meaning, knowingly) and therefore ruined someone's reputation it can also lead to (an other) court case. False accusation is prosecutable.
That may be different in the US?
