Atty, nahuli ko po ang kabit at asawa ko , kinabukasan , nag complaint sa Barangay yung kabit at ako pa ang pinabarangay, nilagay Nya sa complaint is pang iiskandalo, pagmumura at pagduro duro sa kanya na Hindi naman nangyari dahil asawa ko Lang ang kinausap ko. Piña receive Nya yung Brgy. Complaint sa trabaho ko at nagbunga iyon ng kasiraan sa akin. Ako po ay nag resign Na upang Hindi na nila magulo pa. Pwede ko ba sya kasuhan ng libel ? Gusto ko rin humingi ng moral damages
