An example of speaking ill of somebody can be to claim that someone is bad in his/her work or to expose someone disrespectfully to others.
It is not important whether what you have claimed is truthful or not to be convicted and further it is not demanded that someone really has disdained the libelled.
There is a risk of being prosecuted for libelling even when someone claims the information to be originating from rumours.
