Harvey Weinstein has been deprived of his privileged CBE following his conviction for assault and rape.

The previous film tycoon was condemned in March to 23 years in a New York state jail.

The conviction came two years after various sexual wrongdoing claims against Weinstein started a worldwide retribution for maltreatments of intensity through numerous enterprises.

Weinstein was granted his CBE in 2004, for administrations to the entertainment world. As prime supporter of Miramax Films, Weinstein created and appropriated many prominent motion pictures including Pulp Fiction, Sex, Lies and Videotape and Shakespeare in Love.

A notification in the official public record of The Gazette affirmed that Weinstein had been deprived of his title.

The announcement peruses: “The Queen has coordinated that the arrangement of Harvey Weinstein to be an Honorary Commander of the Civil Division of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, dated 29 January 2004, will be dropped and canceled and that his name will be eradicated from the Register of the said Order.”

The choice was made at an ongoing gathering of the Honors Forfeiture Committee, which acts freely from the British government.

Other VIP figures to have been deprived of praises lately incorporate the performer Rolf Harris, whose CBE was dropped following his conviction in 2014 for 12 obscene attacks.
