Libel laws that are oppresive and deny justice

Comment 7th July 2010

From my own personal experience : having publicly criticised a feminist solicitor for uncivilised behaviour towards a father, I found myself threatened with action for defamation. Just the threat was enough to force me to withdraw the true description of how this solicitor had behaved. I have found the laws in this area are stifling valid comment, and so allowing villains to hide behind these laws on defamation. The laws need radical reform to protect the public.

Why does this matter?

Valid criticism is being stiffled.
