Nono you don't understand. Tribunal is meant to bring JUSTICE - ban people that other's experience. Riot stated hundreds of times that tribunal is working perfectly fine and is doing great job. Therefore "false" reports are NOT a factor for tribunal. However, recent actions create two possibilities:
1. Tribunal is working as intended so recent suspension made absolutely no sense. They only enraged people that got banned and created terror amongst everyone that report other players. Nothing good will come from this as enraged players are most likely to stop spending money on this game while feared average players will stop reporting people so "toxic" players will not be punished by tribunal. Its hard to belive Riot would strike themselves for absolutely no reason though.
2. Tribunal system is suspending almost everyone no matter what, so false reports actually ARE a factor and are ruining the system, leading thousands of unjustified suspensions. That would actually make a sense why Riot decided to bring attention to false reports and punish them. However this version would be in conflict with what riot is saying about efficacy of tribunal so nothing good would come in this case aswell - it would only prove Riot lied about tribunal all the time.
