Question posted in the Criminal Law category relating to Gauteng

Good day,

I am 33 year old male residing in Daveyton and I am currently employed as a Call Center Agent in Boksburg.

I have a licensed firearm and I have neighbor who goes around telling people that I have pointed a fire arm at him. He even went as far as going to my friends place and he told my friend that he will stab me in the neck. I am intending getting a protection order against him as he 12 houses away from me, as I have no intention to confront him.

Kindly advise if is there any legal steps that can be taken against him for tarnishing my name.

Your assistance is highly appreciated.

Kind regards,
