The FIA Senate has approved President Max Mosley's proposal for an extraordinary meeting of the FIA General Assembly. The convention has been set for June 3. The assembly will cast a vote of confidence regarding Mosley, who has been embroiled in a tabloid-driven scandal about his sex life.

Mosley, 67, who Monday lost a bid in a United Kingdom court to have video banned from the London newspaper's website, said monies awarded from his suit against the News of the World tabloid will be donated to the FIA Foundation, which attends road safety issues worldwide.

Mosley's term as FIA president is set to expire in October 2009. The FIA oversees the world's motoring organizations and sanctions international motorsport. The 222 members of the FIA General Assembly represent 100 million people in 130 countries.
