    accuse of ... because

    Are these correct:

    1-She accuses me of not helping her out on Sunday because I do not like her boyfriend. That is untrue. I just could not help her. I had a prior engagement on Sunday.

    2-He accuses me of not liking him because he is my ex-wife's brother. That is nonsense. I really do like him.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    As #1 refers to a Sunday in the past, I would start it either with "She accuses me of not having helped her out on Sunday ..." or "She accused me of not helping her out on Sunday ..." It depends when the accusation happened.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
