PLLLLLLLLLLLLLLSSSSSSSSSS DO ANSWER
The law states that crimes are severely punished, but if the accused person can prove his innocence, he is recompensed out of his accusers confiscated property and accuser is put to death.
P.S- Accused is a person who is blamed, charged or imputed.
Accuser is a person who "accuses" or "imputes".
