The Defamation Act does not define the word “defamation”. Instead, the definition of “defamation” is to be found in Malaysian case law and the English common law. By virtue of section 3 of the Civil Law Act 1956, the common law of England as at 7 April 1956 in relation to defamation is applicable in Malaysia.

Defamation is a statement that injures a third party’s reputation. The tort of defamation includes both libel (written statements) and slander (spoken statements).
