Can a person sue a person for slander if another person claims rape against them?

Postby therron57 » Sun Apr 03, 2011 11:10 am

about a yr ago a case was raised against my partner by somebody who was a close friend of his family saying he raped her, we all no this is not true and the case has been sent to the DPP, do we have to wait for DPP verdict or can we go ahead and sue this person for slander?

You can sue immediately. You don't have to wait for the DPP verdict.

If your partner loses the criminal case, the civil case will automatically fail.
