DEFAMATION

WHAT IS DEFAMATION?

Defamation is defined as the use of words or media to portray a person in a negative light such that it affects their reputation. The information presented could be untrue and be exaggerated. A person, business or company can be sued for defamation on the grounds of destroying a person’s or organisation’s social standing sand image.

There are 2 forms of defamation – libel and slander. Libel is defamation that occurs in a more permanent form such as in newspapers on the television. Slander is defamation in a more transient form such as in words or actions. Both forms of defamation are liable for a person to be charged in court.

CONDITIONS FOR FILING DEFAMATION

The following conditions should be considered when filing for a Contract Claim:

  • Able to prove that the information presented is false
  • Able to prove how the defamed person was “damaged”
  • Singapore is the most appropriate forum to commence the proceedings
  • Sufficient funds to carry out court proceedings
