Libel, slander and defamation of character

A word of advice In Spain these are usually criminal offences.

These are communication of statements that make false claims, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may harm the reputation of an individual, business, product, group, government or nation.

Whereas in the U.K. and other countries the action against perpetrators may be lengthy, expensive and cumbersome, here in Spain things are quite different as such behaviour is considered criminal and can be dealt with by the Police, probably because it is considered an injury, just the same as punching someone.
