In Portugal, the onus is on the plaintiff to prove that he has been libelled or defamed.

That's what I thought, Montclair. Thank you. It's going to be difficult, isn't it ... ?

And are we still right in thinking that provided the respondent honestly believed what he said, that is sufficient to kill the case ?

It would seem so, that is what happened in the Amaral v Marcos (lawyer, who went to Brazil, can't remember how to spell his last name) case.  He won because he said he believed in what he said, although not true IIRC, and the judge ruled no libel.
