Announcement on Hari's Orwell Prize decision delayed

Internal misconduct investigation will determine next steps.

The organisers of the Orwell Prize have delayed announcing a decision on whether to strip Johann Hari of his 2008 journalism award until The Independent has completed its own internal misconduct investigation.

The Orwell Prize launched its investigation into whether Hari should keep the award on 30 June, after he admitted inserting unattributed quotes into his articles, including from old interviews and books written by his subjects.

Since then, however, he has faced more accusations, and on 12 July he was suspended for two months by The Independent.
