correct!

 

explanation:- since the govt is a statutory authority, its a defence for it against strict liablity.

as for absolute liablity, it doesnt apply here, bcoz its a rule only in india n here in the qs we are talkin about govt of prusia :-)

Principle: A fair comment is a defence in itself.A statement of fact can be excused only when it can be proved.

 

Facts: A went to a music show where B was singing. After the show, when a journalist asked him about B's performance, A said, "B is so stupid that I'm surprised he actually decided to be a singer! How can he be such a fool to take up singing?" B wants to sue A for his defamatory comments.

Can he succeed?

1. No, it was a fair comment made by A on B's singing.

2. No, A was just expressing his personal opinion on B's singing potential.

3. Yes, A was making a wrong statement of fact instead of a fair comment.

4.Yes, Whatever A said was not a comment on B's singing.

A newspaper carries a cartoon of a famous textile minister who has recently announced a government run fashion house to increase revenues; dragging himself through a pile of ladies' clothes. The minister believes this is a reference to allegations of cross dressing that the same newspaper had levelled against him which were later suitably rebutted. Can he sue for defamation?
