It depends exactly what the denouncement is, I think.

Well, yes, as if the accusation isn't public to some degree, then there
wouldn't be fair process, which would also violate some human right.

I think a code of conduct is a good idea, but I'm not sure if there's
too much emphasis on one particular type of misbehaviour for free and
open source software projects.  I think some SPI projects have had
other sorts of problems at events too: could SPI poll the liaisons,
