I do not see any adverse situation here; but in case he will indeed file a case against your person, then you better prepare for your defense.

Under Article 353 of the Revised Penal Code of the Philippines, libel is defined as a public and malicious imputation of a crime, or of a vice or defect, real or imaginary, or any act, omission, condition, status or circumstance tending to discredit or cause the dishonor or contempt of a natural or juridical person, or to blacken the memory of one who is dead. Thus, the elements of libel are: (a) imputation of a discreditable act or condition to another; (b) publication of the imputation; (c) identity of the person defamed; and, (d) existence of malice. [Daez v. Court of Appeals, G.R. No. 47971, 31 October 1990, 191 SCRA 61, 67]

Be careful, the plaintiff may have supporting evidence that the source of information is you.

If you are a duly licensed Professional of PRC, he can even institute legal action against your person for Unbecoming a Professional; they may argue that you are engage in insinuating false information against a fellow professional.

If worst comes to worst, they can actually make you learn a new lesson.

Then, finally, peace comes forth, by minding our own particular business.

It is more safe, this way. Quiet and humble.

I agree with you, but sabi ko nga if worst comes to worst, and the plaintiff will pursue the legal actions against your person, you have to prepare.

On the proceedings, you will clear you name.

Yes, the locator module on that website is sensitive and you may use that on your argument; because the truth is, yung walang hypen, hindi talaga nag-exist sa records ng board of professionals.

Goodluck with this.

Please do not bother the poor Farmer; it was your sibling who collided with the hapless animal. Get your Motorcycle fixed and be careful next time.
