Can one be sued for libel for telling the truth?
I've taken the details of a couple of the articles here off-line due to threats of libel action - so maybe the truth hurts!
Another question - if a lawyer acting for a client (criminal/fraudster etc) knows that his/her client is culpable, is this same lawyer not an accomplice to the "crime", the more so if he/she not only defends his client’s legal rights, but knowingly maims the rights of the client’s opponent(s)? In my opinion YES, and maybe he/she should even be punished as so!
As usual, the cunning "criminal" probably has more finances than his/her shrewdly chosen victim and thus can threaten legal actions knowing full well that the victim would be unable to fight any action because most courts insist "professional" representation is required, and this costs considerably of course!
Justice costs money, thus some people succumb to threats because of their inability to defend themselves! Idle threats are submitted to (given in to/ignored), of course because of the threat(s) of legal action!
Can this be right? NO!
I have been forced to take down a couple of posts regarding land fraud in the Netherlands because the fraudster reverted to the above tactics!
