Dear Atty. Libayan,

I need some legal advice regarding po sa issue with my mother, Ano pa ba ang ang pwedeng I kontra demanda sa nag aakusa sa mother ko ng Libel which is po na lahat ng pinaparatang sa mother ko is puro Hearsay lang po. We live in now in Cavite and yung nag cocomplain po eh taga Tondo, natira din po kami dun sa lugar na un for how many years simula po nang na demolished ang bahay namin dun eh natransfer po kami sa Cavite. This is my question Attorney.

1. The accuser want na mag attend ang mother ko sa Barangay sa Tondo since po na sa Cavite na po kami naka rehistro.
2. The accuser po ay gustong gawin sa kanilang bahay ang usapan pambarangay upang humingi ng sorry ang nanay ko sa harap ng mga Chairman at Kagawad.
3. Lahat po ng binibintang sa magulang ko eh puro hearsay lang po ng kapitbahay niya sa Tondo na nagsasabi po na ang nanay ko ang nagsasabi na meron po silang utang dun sa Cavite.

Marami pa po akong gustong ipaliwanag sa inyo Attorney regarding po sa issue na to. Gusto ko lang po humingi ng simple advice bago po gumawa ng action na kasuhan din ang taong nag aakusa sa aking magulang.

I hope na mabigyan niyo po ako ng advice regarding to this matter.

Thank you and God Bless.

1. Wag na po mag attend, di na kayo sakop ng katarungang pambarangay law.

2. Pwede kayong wag na umattend.

3. Bale walain nyo na lang kung wala namang basehan.

Hello Atty!

I was hoping you can give me an advice about my situation. What is the safest thing to do/say, to free my self from being convicted for a cyber libel?

Here are the facts:

Last year 2015, I lost my cellular phone. Everything from my Facebook, yahoo mail and tweeter account's password and username where automatically saved on the phone.

Here's the thing, I live in a small town, people here knows everyone, and even if Something is publicly revealed such as a Scandal, it easily spreads like a virus.

I got my phone from my grandparents who adopted me, it was the cheapest plan from a known telecommunication site. As I remembered, I left it inside a public van near the drivers seat where I was seated. The driver didn't even called me nor stopped and just called me that I left my phone. I thought he was a nice person and seems to know everyone around because he knows a few rumors. He started asking me if I know this woman, of course! He was referring to my schoolmate. The woman had been alleged to have a relationship with a married man. She even got miscarriages 2 times with two different guys who were unfortunately we're still married. He said the woman was a relative and he really is ashamed! He knew the wife and was a good friend of someone within their bloodline, I forgot. I also shared him facts about what I knew about her. Well, I didn't think of it as defaming her I was telling him the truth because well I personally hate her also.

Now me months later, my schoolmate sent everyone an email stating therein not to believe what has been circulating online about her. I wasn't able to see what she was referring to because the account she stated there wasn't available anymore. But I saw some screenshots taken by my other friends. There it shows her picture, full name, and libelous facts about her. Well, based on my knowledge I can confirm maybe a few.

Months passed by, now it's 2016!
Another account was publicly made from a social media site. This time it contain only hints and I'm pretty sure it's still referring to my schoolmate again.

But now, I'm having doubts!! The facts their were pretty similar to what I've shared with the driver. Also those facts he shared to me were stated there also.

Right now, that schoolmate of mine is exerting efforts to find who the culprit was.

I'm really scared. Maybe my phone was used to create an account. What if the telecommunication company will trace my phone. I have searched in the net they can still trace you even without a sim card, just by using the phone's IME 1.

What will I do? If I will them the story I'm not sure if they will believe me. The driver nowadays is no where to be found.

Please help me I don't want to be put in bars.
What should I do to defend my self? What shall be my defense?
