Though our client believes that genuinely wronged women should get justice at all costs, there are legislations that are intended to ensure that women have an equal standing in their workplace and to ensure that they have a cordial workplace in which their dignity and self-respect is protected.
No woman can be allowed to misuse their liberties to harass other women with unsubstantiated or non-existent, false and baseless allegations," the statement read.
