Hi Attorneys,

Are these terms libelous if used to describe an individual?

"'Tang ina nya"
"Pathetic"
"Drama Queen"
"Kiss ass"
"Parasitic hitch hiking habits"
"Abusive hitch hiking habits"


Thanks in advance.

Landowner12,

I'm not sure what you're trying to answer me with. I certainly have seen that before posting. As I was researching, I also saw this:

c). Words which are merely insulting are not actionable as libel or slander per se, and mere words of general abuse however opprobious, ill-natured, or vexatious whether written r spoken, do not constitute a basis for an action for defamation in the absence of allegation for special damages. The fact that the language is offensive to the plaintiff does not make it actionable by itself ( MVRS Pub. Inc. vs Islamic  Da’wah  Council of the Phil. 444 Phil. 20;  Binay vs. Sec. of Justice Sept. 8, 2006)

And that was from:

http://www.batasnatin.com/law-library/criminal-law/crimes-and-penalties/1079-libel.html

So which is which?

If you can, please be specific.

naman Smile
wait ka lng sa explaination at resbak ni master land owner Smile his just defining you according sa title ng topic mo.

relax ka lng Smile


try mo ang "Slander" its a libel committed by oral (spoken) means, instead of in writing. The term oral defamation or slander as now understood, has been defined as the speaking of base and defamatory words which tend to prejudice another in his reputation, office, trade, business or means of livelihood.


Sa crime na ito, dapat ay identified ang taong sinabihan nya ng salitang nabanggit mo. In short, kailangan na tinukoy niya ang taong sinabihan nya.
at ito ay ginawa nya in public. Ang crime na ito ay may kaukulang parusa na arresto menor o 1-30 days or a fine not exceeding Php200.00 if not serious in nature.

ako din kasi similar case. mag demanda ako ng ganyan sa taong tumawag sakin at nag sabi ng

muka daw akong pogi Smile

i feel insulted kasi.. ngongo ang nag sabi non at tumawag sakin..

pu*i yta talaga ang dpt nyang sasabihin Smile
