Get a Good Lawyer mga Bes!

Dear Ate Mocha,

Kung ako sa yo wag ka nang bumalik kasi for sure makakasuhan ka na talaga. Do you really think maliligtas ka ng word na “alleged”?

Sabi mo kasi sa video sa page mo,

“Sasampahan daw po ako ng kaso ni Sen. Trillanes dahil sa pag-share ko sa Facebook ng kanyang bank accounts. Unang-una, paki-Google po ang ibig sabihin ng ‘alleged’ or ‘allegedly’dahil mahilig naman kayo mag-Google Mr. Senator Trillanes (Sen. Trillanes said he will file a libel case against me because I shared his bank accounts on Facebook. First of all, please Google search what ‘alleged’ or ‘allegedly’ means, since you like to Google, Mr. Senator Trillanes).”

Turuan kita ha, para maintindihan mo ang gulong napasukan mo. Ano nga ba ang libel?

Libel, a crime under the Revised Penal Code, is defined as:

“a public and malicious imputation of a crime, or of a vice or defect, real or imaginary, or any act, omission, condition, status, or circumstance tending to cause the dishonor, discredit, or contempt of a natural or juridical person, or to blacken the memory of one who is dead.”

Ate, “malicious imputation” daw, pasok na pasok ang ginawa mo. Balahura ka kasi.

Eto po ang elements ng lible.

First Element: There must be a defamatory imputation.

Ibig pong sabihin nito na ang paninira na ginawa ay must impute a crime, vice, defect, or any act, or omission, condition, status or circumstance, tending to cause the dishonor, discredit or contempt to a natural or juridical person, or to blacken the memory of one who is dead.

Di ba pinagbibintangan mo si Senator Trillanes na may ill-gotten wealth?  Pasok yun sa imputation of a crime. Lagot ka.

Second Element: Publicity of the Libelous Matter

Pak na pak, pasok ka uli Ate Mocha. Resibo.

Third Element: The Person libeled must be identified.
(Identity of victim)

Lagot, pinangalanan mo pa. All caps ang Trillanes oh.

Fourth Element: That there be malice on the part of the accused.

Eto po ang ibig sabihin ng malice, baka kasi kung ano pa isipin mo, balahura ka pa naman.

Malice is the legal term to denote that the accused is motivated by personal ill-will, spite, hatred, jealousy, anger, and speaks not in response to duty but to do ulterior and unjustifiable harm. The purpose is really to destroy, to injure, to inflict harm.”

Yan, pasok ka talaga, kasi you are motivated by anger and hatred at ang purpose mo teh, klarong klaro di ba?  You want to destroy Senator Trillanes kasi you thought he is destroying your Poon. Luh, kayang kaya na yang gawin ni Tatay Digong all by himself no.

Now, sabi mo since sinabi mo ang “alleged”, akala mo ligtas ka na.  Nyek, asa ka pa.

According to SC case  Yuchengco v. The Manila Chronicle

“The question in libel cases is not what writers mean, but what their words mean to an ordinary reader”

Ibig sabihin nito kahit pa ginamit mo ang “alleged” kung ang nakabasa ng post ay sa isip nila na totoo ang paninira mo, you already committed libel po. Sabi pa nga sa kasong yan,

“Words calculated to induce suspicion are sometimes more effective to destroy reputation than false charges directly made. Ironical and metaphorical language is a favored vehicle for slander.”

So Ate Mocha, yang pag pagoogle mo ng “alleged ” ay walang kwenta yan, kasi klarong klaro you committed libel po.

Tapos inamin pa ni Tatay Digong na peke ang bank account pala, paktay na, lalo lang pinalakas ang libel case. Tapos kung hindi ba naman katangahan, nagpost ka pa nito.

Ikaw mismo mo inamin mo na peke ang post mo. Tapos narealized mong mas mapapahamak kang lalo, you deleted the post, eh may resibo ako.

Remind lang ha, ate Mocha, si Tatay Digong lang po ang may immunity, kayo ni Tol Erwin wala.

I hope you and Erwin Tulfo like prison food, kasi po ang parusa sa libel ay ranges from a fine of P40,000 to P1.2 million, or pagka kulong six months to four years and two months, or both, as well as civil action.

Karma is a bitch no?  Gabaan ka, teh no?

Mirisi nang Bongga,

PAB
