The Plaintiff brought a libel action against the Defendants. The High Court held that although the statement was found to be defamatory against the Plaintiff, the Defendants were protected by defence of qualified privilege as there was a common and corresponding interest between the Defendants and to whom the statement was made. Accordingly, the Plaintiff’s claim was dismissed with costs.
