1 Oral Defamation on Fri Mar 25, 2011 11:26 am

Hingi lang po ako ng advice regarding oral defamation. What kind of evidence po ba ang kailangan? What if wala kang mahanap na witness kasi ka-konchaba sila lahat ng tao na nag-defame sa'yo?
What if you're in a situation na naglalakad ka sa daan tapos bigla na lang may isang taong sinigawan at minura ka habang naka-talikod ka at sinabing prostitute ka tapos napansin mong wala namang ibang taong naglalakad kundi ikaw lang so iisipin mong ikaw yung tinutukoy ng taong iyon kaya ka napatingin lang naman tapos inisip mo ulit na baka hindi ikaw iyon kasi nga hindi naman totoo kaya nagpatuloy ka nalang sa paglakad at hindi na lang iyon pinansin. Kaso kinabukasan may mga bali-balita nang ganoon ka nga pero wala pa naman kahit isang tao na nag-approach sa iyo na may ganoong accusations kaso yun nga naka-kaapekto na kasi sa tuwing dadaan ako sa street na iyon ng subdivision namin lagi ka nalang sinisigawan ng ganoon at minumura kahit sa maraming tao.
Ang question ko lang.. kailangan bang mag-gather ka pa nang further evidence na may gumagawa ng maling kuwento na tungkol sa iyo? Kahit na hindi nga nila ako kilala. Ni hindi nga nila alam ang buong pangalan mo. Should you wait further rather than press charges kasi hindi mo pa naman alam kung sino ang nagkakalat ng kwentong iyon? Should you need more evidence pa other than what you heard? What if wala kang makuhang witness para magpatunay na ginagawan ka na pala ng kwento na hindi mo naman kilala? Dapat bang kilalanin muna yung taong nag-defame sa iyo?

if you proceed now, it won't be a strong case, but you can already file a case at the bgy.

Hello po,

I'm asking a legal advice about oral defamation. I'm hoping you could help me.

A person from our barangay said that we became rich because I'm selling my P***y here abroad, that's what exactly what he said. He had inflicted me so much emotional distress, especially to my parents.

I'm an English who had work in Turkey for four years, a year in New Jersey, USA and a year in Cambodia. I couldn't just forgive him, even my parents when they brought the issue to the barangay. It happened last Januaryy 26. I was shocked because it's already April and I just knew about it. They said because the barangay didn't give a certificate to file a lawsuit. So it's just now they can move on to the next steps to file an action.

My questions are:
1. Is it a grave oral defamation? Or just a simple defamation?
2. What will be the punishment if proven guilty? (We have witnesses)
3. Is there monetary punishment on this? (i just asked because I want people to be careful of what will come out from their mouth)
4. What are the procedure in filing oral defamation?


I know I have too much question. Please bear with me. Thank you so much.

God bless..

By the way , the man who said those words said he was just drunk so he said those words.
but before that situation, He had misunderstanding with my brother. Will it affect the case for oral defamation since he's drunk?

in this case, drunkenness, in my opinion, will lighten the crime so it will be light oral defamation. but you should argue that it is grave.

punishment will probably be a P200 fine or imprisonment of up to 1 month.

you can add civil damages if you're willing to spend for it. does the guy have assets?

after the certificate to file action, the next step is to file a complaint affidavit at the prosecutor's office.

The man is just a poor person who is just insecure of what other people's success. I'm really wiling to spend any amount just to give justice for my family and a lesson to that man or any person that do not think what comes out from their mouth. I'm so disturbed by this especially for my family.

Is civil damages the same as emotional distress or it is different. Do we have law about emotional distress. Because in the US, you add emotional distress case to the person that had caused you problem.



Thank you so much Attorney. I owe you a lot.
God bless

yes, there is such a thing called moral damages, but i don't see the point if he has no properties.

good day!i need help. a person na may previous conflict with my husband (more or less 5 months ago) na almost 5 months na hindi na namin kinakausap or pinapansin ang bigla na lang lumapit sa harapan ng aming bahay and confronted my husband about the incident that happened between them 5 months ago. we were surprise because we never talked nor have any tansaction with him in the last 5 months. tapos bigla in the middle of the discussion sinabihan nya ang asawa ko ng tanga! at sinabihan naman ako ng manahimik daw ako. then he also called me ulol. sinabi rin nya sira na daw ako sa lugar dahil lahat inaway ko na, when in fact hindi yun totoo. all of these happened in front of 3 of our other friends who happened to be our visitor at that time. my husband and i felt humiliated. we filled a blotter sa brgy. after the incident.

my question is what case ang pwde ko isampa against that person and may laban ba kmi?

meron pa akong mapapala kapag nagdemanda ako sa isang lalake na sobra akong pinagmumura at pinagsigawan ng mabaho ang ari ko, sa harap ng maraming tao? tapos na po kami sa baranggay at ayokong makipag areglo, dahil hindi ko matanggap yung ginawa nyang iskandalo sa akin, at sya ay hindi lasing. Meron na akong certification to file. ano po bang pwedeng maging penalties at damage na maaaring magyari?

magtatanong lang po ako. ang isang tao ba na pinagkakautangan mo ng 9k (5/6 na utang) ay may karapatan ng sabihin sa mga kaopisina mo na may utang ka at magtanong ng magtanong ng kung anu ano sa mga tao sa opisina? araw araw naman kami magkausap at nitong Feb 18 dahil nga sa nagpapagamot ako (may proof ako na hawak) ay hindi ako nakapaghulog sa kanya at the same din this end of the month. araw araw na lang sya nangungulit na pilit ng pilit magbayad. may text mat tawag sa landline pa pero tumatawag pa din sya sa mga kaopisina ko. pag po ito nakarating sa HR e baka mawalan ako ng trabaho. ano po ba aang pwede ko gawin sa kanya. sabi ko naman magkita kami sa Barangay para dun kami mag usap at medyo hindi na po maganda yung ginagawa nya dahil affected na yung araw araw na tawag nya pero di naman sya makuntento sa pakiusap. may karapatan na ba syang ipagkalat yung pagkakautang ko? ano po ang remedyo para tigilan nya na ang pagtawag sa office ko? nahaharrass na po ako sa kanya. bale half month pa lang ako di nakapagbayad kasi since Feb 18 may due ako. Sana po makahanap ako ng solution sa problema na ito at nababalisa na ko na baka dahil sa ginagawa nya e mawalan ako ng work. I am a single mom pa naman though syempre minsan may excuse po not to pay pero nung last Feb 18 naman talagang nagpagamot ako ako before that kaya nagipit talaga ako. please help po.
