The woman who set up motor racing chief Max Mosley taking part in a sado-masochistic orgy, has spoken about how she feels sorry for his wife of 47 years.
Woman E, the wife of an MI5 officer, was paid by the British newspaper, News of the World to record the sadomasochism session she enjoyed with Mosley and four other prostitutes.
She spoke out the day after the son of the 1930s fascist leader Sir Oswald Mosley, was awarded 60,000 pounds damages in the High Court for invasion of privacy.
Justice Eady in his fifty-four page ruling said that there was a reasonable expectation of privacy when acts were taking place on private property even if people disapproved of an act on moral grounds and even if it was a minor breach of the law.
"I feel really sorry for Mrs Mosley and her family. It's devastating for her. She didn't ask for this and I'm very sorry that it came out as it did. I don't think enough sorries could make up for this. I do feel responsible," Telegraph quoted Woman E, as saying.
Woman E was not called to give evidence by the News of the World witness list because of her "emotional and mental state".
The court heard she was paid half the 25,000 pounds the newspaper promised for the story, but she also saw her husband lose his job as he was exposed as an MI5 officer.
Woman E said Mr Mosley had acted as a prisoner in a German prison scenario where other women wore German uniforms but agreed there were no Nazi overtones.
