Swedish Academy Crisis Deepens As Another Member Steps Down


According to a report by Reuters, the Swedish Academy announced on Saturday that another member would be stepping down, compounding one of the worst crises to hit the institution that picks the winners of the Nobel Literature prize. The academy has been struck by allegations of sexual misconduct by the husband of one of its members, as well as the admission that the names of some prize-winners were leaked in advance. The committee said in a statement, "The Swedish Academy wants to inform that Sara Stridsberg told the academy on April 27 that she wishes to leave her duties as a member." Academy chief Sara Danius stepped down and four other members also announced their withdrawal from the board following the controversy. https://ift.tt/2Kj3Xw2 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
