Landmark judgement makes online defamation illegal

A woman who published defamatory statements about a family on Facebook will now have to pay for her posts.

The family who took the woman to court over her libellous posts, won their case in the high court this morning.

The landmark judgment handed down by justice Frank Seepersad now makes it illegal to defame anyone on social media.

Reporter Ria Rambally sat down with the attorney who represented the family to tell us what this means.
