It’s nice to know that more countries are taking on the idea of greater press freedom in libel cases.
I still remember how shocked I was when I discovered that truth is not an absolute defense in a libel case in Hong Kong. There were cases where the organization that felt slighted (libeled?) by a news organization would still win a libel case even though everything said was true. It was explained to me that even if one person viewed the group in a lesser light because of the honest report, that group (or person) can successfully sue for libel.
