Corroboration & Sex Crimes: Are two proofs better than one?

To convict a criminal in Scotland, two independent sources of evidence are needed (‘corroboration’). But is this rule allowing too many criminals (including rapists and sex abusers) to walk free? The Scottish Government thinks so, and wants to abolish the need for corroboration, allowing a conviction to be based on a single source of evidence. Will this lead to the conviction of innocent people?
