I always remember a documentary I saw years ago of this group of girls (and sorry i can’t remember the name). One of the girl was very insecure and was not worst singing than the others, but she was obviously bullied. During the documentary the girls would ‘‘bump’’ into her and laugh and you could tell it hurt her but she would laugh it off too. She was abused through the whole documentary but completely ignored by the ones filming (they thought it would bring more viewers?)
I was hoping she would leave the group and find another group to join since I knew the bullying would only get worst. She finally gave up, but instead of moving on, I remember she committed suicide by jumping from a high rise building (maybe a hotel?). The death was hidden, and I never saw her burial either it was like she never existed in that group or what happened to her, had any importance. Little did I know this wouldn’t be the first time I would cry for a senseless death caused by the evil some humans can cause to others.
Yes I agree some of this accusations are LIES some are REAL but the worse part of all this is that we have an uncaring government in some country that has not made laws to protect others from false accusations and of course Bullying as long as money goes through their hands. Sully, Go Ara and many others would be alive today if those laws that need to be implemented had protect them in the first place. If this acts of crimes has no consequences the criminal will continue doing the bad deed and not paying for their crime.
Defamation (also known as calumny , vilification , libel , slander ) is the oral or written communication of a false statement about another that unjustly harms their reputation and usually constitutes a tort or crime. In several countries, including South Korea, a true statement can also be considered defamation.
Under common law, to constitute defamation, a claim must generally be false and must have been made to someone other than the person defamed. Some common law jurisdictions also distinguish between spoken defamation, called slander , and defamation in other media such as printed words or images, called libel . In the United States, false light laws protect against statements which are not technically false but are misleading.
In some jurisdictions, defamation is treated also as a crime. The United Nations Human Rights Committee ruled in 2012 that the libel law of one country, the Philippines, was inconsistent with Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights as well as urging that “State parties [to the Covenant] should consider the decriminalization of libel”. In Saudi Arabia, defamation of the state, or a past or present ruler, is punishable under terrorism legislation.
What is the punishment of defamation?
Section 500, which is on punishment for defamation, reads: “Whoever defames another shall be punished with simple imprisonment for a term which may extend to two years, or with fine, or with both.” In India, defamation is both civil and criminal offence.
We now know that the laws implemented can’t protect the victim as long as we have corrupted officials that sell their soul for a few dollars. No matter how much money they have the law should be the law and never waver.
