Bizman files libel
raps vs. Gamboa
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
Bacolod businessman Crispin Chua filed seven counts of libel against Councilor Wilson Gamboa Jr. before the Bacolod City Prosecutor's Office yesterday, for repeatedly calling him a “pathological and a congenital liar”, in several interviews involving the issue of the Bacolod Northbound terminal.
Chua also requested the Prosecutor to subpoena hard copies of all recorded interviews of Gamboa between January 17 to April 4, which are presently in the custody of DYRL, DYHB, DYAF and DYEZ, and to conduct a preliminary investigation as soon as possible.
He said all the public interviews of Gamboa accusing him of being a “pathological and a congenital liar,” and further explaining to the public these defamatory words to describe his character as a person, are grossly defamatory and/or libelous, or violative of Articles 353 and 355 of the Revised Penal Code.
