Normally to frame somebody means
3 informal produce false evidence against (an innocent person) so that they appear guilty
Now what in case of a cautious criminal who took care to hide/remove the evidence of their crimes, and now someone in the know returns the evidence to its place, replaces false records with real ones, restores removed clues etc., so that the authorities can find the criminal rightfully guilty?
Does that still count as framing?
If not, is there a name for this kind of activity?
