Disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein has been stripped of his honorary CBE following his conviction for rape and sexual assault.
An official announcement in The Gazette confirms that the Queen has annulled his appointment as a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, reports the BBC.
The decision was made at a recent meeting of the Honours Forfeiture Committee, which is independent from government.
Weinstein was awarded the CBE in 2004.
In March, Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison, following an investigation by the New York Times in Oct 2017 that published accusations from several women that the now 68-year-old producer had abused or harassed them.
The removal of Weinstein's CBE for services to the film industry follows the 2017 rescinding of the Fellowship he received from the British Film Institute (BFI) in 2002.
