Nobel Body: 'unacceptable Behavior'  Not Widely Known

Friday, 20 April 2018 07:39 AM

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — The Swedish Academy, which hands out the coveted Nobel Prize in Literature, says an investigation has found "unacceptable behavior in the form of unwanted intimacy" has taken place within its ranks.

The 18-member board has in recent weeks been embroiled in a sex-abuse scandal that the investigation report concluded Friday was "not generally known."

It has led to the departure of six of members of the Academy and tarnished the prize's reputation.

Sweden's prime minister, the king and the Nobel board have all expressed their concerns.

The academy commissioned lawyers to investigate sexual misconduct claims from 18 women against Jean-Claude Arnault, a major cultural figure in Sweden who is married to Katarina Frostenson, a poet who is a member of the academy.
