FIA president Max Mosley s case against British newspaper the News of the World has been adjourned until Monday because a key defence witness failed to appear. The NOTW had hoped that an unidentified prostitute – known only as Woman E – would testify that there were Nazi undertones to the sex session that Mosley was involved in and the newspaper subsequently revealed.
Mark Warby QC, who is representing the News of the World, said that they had taken a late decision not to call her because of her emotional state.
“It had been my intention to call Woman E, as I told the court last night,” Warby explained to British newspaper the Daily Telegraph. “This morning, at about ten to eight, I received information which has later been elaborated on which leads those instructing me and my clients to take the view that her emotional and mental state is such that it would not be fair or reasonable to call her to give evidence.”
