Mystery Hour Question
Question: Can you lose a Nobel prize?
Name: Barry, Woolwich
Name: David, Kensal Rise
Qualification: Read it somewhere
Answer: Back last year when Aung San Suu Kyi had a prize and the Rohingya Crisis was going on in Myanmar, there was a petition signed for it to be taken from her.
However, the head of the Nobel institute said that you can’t take a prize away because the will of Alfred Nobel, nor the rules of the foundation do not allow for you to take the prize away.
So it’s never actually been done.
