Agreed. If it's for the purpose of making a good faith complaint to a relevant person in authority that's not defamation. If they are going round saying it to Tom, dick, and Harry at school to cause damage that could be.The context is missing here. Has one minor made accusations against another minor of some type of assault? If the minor made a disclosure in confidence, I dont see how that could be defamation. Even if Tusla are involved thats not defamation.

There is a big difference between an adult assaulting a child and a child assaulting another child.
