Defamation - Principles & Procedures in Singapore & Malaysia (2016) + ebook  $278.20 

By Doris Chia

This book simplifies a very specialised area of law and considers the latest cases in the are of defamation in Singapore & Malaysia, including defamation cases on the internet. For the first time, here is a legal textbook that provides a step by step guide on the ‘why' and ‘how' of procedure and pleadings for a defamation action in Singapore & Malaysia.

As most of the modes of publication today are via the internet, the book also has a much needed chapter dealing specifically with defamation published via Facebook, Twitter, and through E-mails etc. There is a new chapter called ‘Media Defences' which deals with the defences open to media agencies as well as the Reynold's Defence and the defence of Neutral Reportage which has gained traction in Malaysia and elsewhere.

Key Features:

  • This book explains the elements of defamation and its defences
  • It provides guidance on how to plead the defamatory words, identification, publication, damages, malice, slander etc
  • For a plaintiff, it explains what to do if a Defence is not filed, what are the principles governing an application for the determination of the meaning of the defamatory words and for summary judgment and when can aggravated damages be claimed etc
  • For a defendant, it explains the defences available, when and how to take out an application to strike out the Statement of Claim, the advantages of a separate assessment of damages for co-defendants etc
  • It also explains the ramifications of an apology before and after an action is commenced and the different types of damages and reliefs a plaintiff can claim"
