Anonymity at Leveson inquiry challenged
Saturday 14 January 2012
Associated Newspapers, publisher of the Daily Mail, told the High Court its reputation could be damaged if journalists were allowed to give evidence to the Leveson Inquiry anonymously.
Lord Justice Leveson ruled in the opening sessions of his review of the ethics and practices of the press that "in principle" evidence could be heard from unnamed journalists who feared public testimony could threaten their jobs. Associated's challenge to that was described yesterday by the inquiry's counsel, Robert Jay QC, as "premature", adding that Lord Justice Leveson had yet to decide whether such evidence should be received in any individual case. The judge's decision will be announced later.
