A libel suit is charged against me and my friend. This is how things happen: i forgot to logout my facebook account on a friend's cp.. let's call her (Miss B)Then 2-3 weeks after me and my friend received a brgy blotter.. mentioned there Miss B claimed "paninirang puri sa fb"... after she read our private messages she charged us of libel because we talked about her.
Question: can we be liable of the charges? knowing she read first our personal conversations without my consent? another is can we file a counter charge against her claiming "invasion of privacy"?

You can't file a counter charge because the cybercrime will be involve in an investigation! NBI can prove that you were talking about her even you deleted the messages already, they have way to retrieve the original conversation! All you have to do is defence as what AttyLLL said, just argue that those messages are inadmissible because it is invading your communication in privacy. Be contented to just defend your side.
36 Illegal dismissal Vs. Libel on Thu May 14, 2015 4:59 am
I have a labor case against my former employer. Modesty aside, I believe I have a 99% chance to win the labor case.
But my former employer was able to acquire screenshots of my posts about them in a secret group in Facebook. Plus some reviews that I posted about them in Glassdoor. There was also a time that I posted my experience with them in the comments section of Manila Bulletin when an article about them was featured. The comments section was hosted by Disqus.
In our last mediation at the NLRC, the lawyer of my former employer told me that they will not give in to my monetary demands. All they can offer is, they will not pursue a libel case against me if I 1) withdraw my labor case against them, 2) Take down all my posts about them. 3) Apologize publicly..
By the way, Glassdoor is a website about companies and current and former employees are free to write Testimonials about them. Disqus is website that features articles and there is a comment section also.
My question is, can they really sue me for libel if my posts are in a secret group in Facebook which means it is not open publicly? Can they also sue me for putting comments or testimonials in websites that engage in to comments about the subject?
Hoping for your feedback. Thanks!

Sa ilalim ng Artikulo 353 ng Binagong Kodigo Penal ng Pilipinas, ang libelo ay isang pampublikong at malisyosong bintang ng isang krimen, tunay o haka-haka, o anumang pagkilos, pagkukulang, kalagayan, katayuan o kalagayan na ang hangarin ay siraan o maging sanhi ng kasiraang-puri o paghamak ng isang tao. Kaya, ang mga elemento ng libelo ay ang:
1. pagbibintang ng isang kahiya-hiya gawa o kalagayan sa iba.
2. paglalathala ng mga bintang.
3. pagkakakilanlan ng taong defamed.
4. ang pagkakaroon ng masamang hangarin.
Sino-sino ang pwedeng kasuhan ng libelo:
Ang sinumang tao na mag published, eksibit, o maging sanhi ng mga eksibisyon ng anumang paninira sa pamamagitan ng sulat o o kahalintulad ng ibig sabihin nito ay magiging responsable . Ang may-akda o editor ng isang libro o pamplet, o mga editor o may ari ng isang pang-araw araw na pahayagan magasin, o publikasyon, ay magiging responsable para sa defamations nakapaloob kung siya ay ang mga may-akda nito.
ANG SLANDER AY PANINIRANG PURI SA SALITA O KILOS NA WALANG KATOTOHANAN NA NAKAKASIRA SA REPUTASYON AT KARAKTER NG ISANG TAO NA MAY PARUSANG KULONG UNDER ARTICLE 358 NG REVISED PENAL CODE. ANG SLANDER AY MAY DALAWANG KLASE, SIMPLE SLANDER NA MAY MABABANG PARUSA AT GRAVE SLANDER NA MAY MATAAS NA PARUSA.
Grave Slander at Salnder by Deed. Ang "Slander" o "Oral Defamation ay isang sinungaling o walang katotohanan na paninira na ipinahayag mula sa salita o kilos na nakakasira sa isang reputasyon o karakter ng isang tao. Ito ay pinaparusahan ng kulong at isang krimen under Article 358 ng Revised Penal Code:
ART. 358. Slander. - Oral defamation shall be punished by arresto mayor (1 month and 1 day to 6 months) in its maximum period to pricion correctional (6 months and 1 day to 6 years) in its minimum period if it is of a serious and insulting nature; otherwise, the penalty shall be arresto menor (1 day to 30 days) or a fine not exceeding 200 pesos.”
Ang krimen na Slander ay may dalawang klase, ang Simple Slander na may mababang parusa dahil ito ay isang light felony lamang at Grave Slander na may mataas na parusa. Ayon sa Supreme Court case na Villanueva v. People [521 Phil. 191 (2006)]., oral defamation or slander is the speaking of base and defamatory words which tend to prejudice another in his reputation, office, trade, business or means of livelihood. It is grave slander when it is of a serious and insulting nature.

Now I have endured 6 months (I have 4+ months of screenshots) where these people have repeatedly named me as a thief, that my business is failing, that I have been caught red handed committing crime(s), that the police have found stolen properties on my person or in my possession etc. ... All of these and more are lies.
Besides libel is there a further case I can file such as "psychological violence" and this may be interpreted as, and certainly feels like, bullying, it has impacted upon me personally, my business is suffering as a result of these lies circulating about me.
Before me these people also did similar to friends of mine over a two year period so much so that my friends sold up and emigrated, no sooner had my friends left than these people turned their attentions on me.
As they say "I want to throw the book" at these people so any additional case(s) I may be able to file against them would be greatly appreciated.
