Hi,
Thank you.
You could sue him for defamation in the English Courts. You are both English citizens.
You need to consider the following:
- There will be an added expense to the proceedings as his service address is outside the UK - you will need to obtain permission of the courts to serve him with proceedings outside the UK;
- Where are his assets - if you win a judgment you will need to enforce it against him - if you have to do this in Kuwait that may be difficult - does he have property in England to enforce;
- Will this effect your employment or status in Kuwait?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards
AJ
