No No­bel Prize

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

THERE will be no 2018 No­bel lit­er­a­ture prize as the acad­emy strug­gles to re­cover from a sex scan­dal.

French­man Jean-Claude Ar­nault, mar­ried to an No­bel Acad­emy mem­ber, was ac­cused of rape and sex­ual as­sault and it was then dis­cov­ered con­flicts of in­ter­est be­tween him and the acad­emy, which had funded his club for years. Ar­nault’s ver­dict is due on Mon­day.

Now the 2018 lau­re­ate will be an­nounced at the same time as the 2019 prize.
