i was listed as member of the barangay andti-drug abuse council which is mandated to submit the list of known drug user/pusher of my barangay, my question is: are we vulnerable in any cases against defamation because all of this list are based on presumption and heresay?

In my limited knowledge yes. Kung gusto mo ibanggit mo yung source para may basis. Otherwise fishing expedition yan.

Good luck!

assuming first that this was an official act of the bgy, the act of creating a list of suspected drug dependents and submitting it to the proper authority or person is not defamation or libel if done in good faith and honest belief that the persons included are indeed drug dependents.

now, to protect yourself, ask for criteria of how to determine whether a person is a drug dependent.
