Max Mosley’s funding of press regulator Impress ‘damages its independence’
MAX Mosley’s funding of press regulator Impress damages its independence, judges have heard.
The former F1 mogul, 77, was an ardent campaigner for press control, the High Court was told.
That meant Impress was “not an independent self-regulatory body”, said Lord Pannick QC.
Instead, it should be funded by those it sought to regulate, he added.

The claims were made on behalf of news publishers challenging approval granted to Impress under a royal charter.
Lawyers for Mr Mosley, who has called for greater press control since photos of him at a sex party were published, say the claims have “no merit”.
Judgment will be given at a later date.
