1 Defamatory libel on Fri Nov 09, 2012 10:45 am


Arresto Menor
Good morning atty's, Where is the proper venue in filing a libel case if the defamtory statement was originated onboard the ship? The ship was trading in cabotage waters.
I am already in the philippines when i received an information from my manning agency that they receive a message from the captain of one of their ship which i believe to be libelous. Thank you in advance.

if civil case for libel, then it can be at your or the other guy's residence. if criminal, then at the place of registry of the ship
