1 do i have a case?? on Sat Jun 09, 2012 1:51 am

good day po atty. i would like to know what my chances are coz i would like to file a case of unjust vexation & slander against my neighbor, i have 2 of my friends as witnesses that he told those bad things against me.

The problem is my 2 friends doesn't want to make a sworn affidavit coz they are afraid that my neighbor which is a rich man might sue them for meddling in other people's affair.

So i would like to know that even without their sworn affidavits, could I still file a case against my neighbor? and say that two of my friends told me that he said those bad things against me.

For the slander case to prosper, you have to present witness(es) that would testify that your neighbor uttered slanderous words. If you cant ask your friends to do so, look for other witnesses. For you to testify that your friends told you what your neighbor told them would be considered as hearsay and inadmissible as evidence.

For unjust vexation, you could file the case if your it will be based on other acts where you have first hand knowledge. However, if it will be based on the first paragraph, in my opinion it would not prosper.
