Breaking scandals

Swedish TV, SVT, added that Jaine Svenungsson was one of 18 members of the Academy, who left her last weekend when the scandals were reported.

As a member of the Swedish Academy, Svenungsson was elected last September, joining in December.

According to the SVT, Svenungsson decided to end the membership after "rigorous thinking". Now she wants to work her full time job – working as a professor of theology at the university.

In the heart of the scandal over sexual abuse, Jean-Claude Arnault, a prominent cultural figure in Sweden and a member of the Nobel Prize for Literature, Catherine Frostenson, came from France.

The accused for rape

Arnault was charged with rape in October and sentenced to two years in prison.

Swedish academy this year – for the first time since 1942 – did not award the Nobel Prize in the literature category.

He just decided in connection with the Arnault scandal that Dagens Niheter opened last autumn when they wrote about the sexual harassment of 18 women.

The story of the academy has even aggravated the news that the 72-year-old Frenchman has proclaimed the names of literary winners of the Nobel Prize.

In addition, Frostensen and Arnault have shown themselves to be in conflict of interest as they own a private cultural center in Stockholm that has been accredited in the past – spending three million dollars a year in the form of scholarships.

Upon receiving this information, in addition to Frostensen, seven members of the 18-member committee gave up their membership in life.
