A new petition has appeared on the government’​s epetition website urging that people who maliciously report innocent claimants for benefits fraud be prosecuted.

The full petition reads:

Given the success rate of the "​shop a benefit fraud"​ hotline is only 0.31%, a large number of people are being maliciously accused of benefit fraud. Such malicious people should be subject the criminal law similar to wasting police time.

You can sign the petition here.
