Macron says France will strip Weinstein of the prestigious Legion d’Honneur

French President, Emmanuel Macron says France will strip the disgraced Hollywood movie mogul, Harvey Weinstein, of the prestigious Legion d’Honneur as steps have been taken to revoke the honour from him.
Weinstein, who is accused by several women of sexual harassment and rape, was made a knight of the Legion d’Honneur, France’s highest award, in 2012 in recognition of the efforts by Miramax, the company he founded with his brother Bob, to boost foreign films in the United States.

On Thursday, 49 year old Florence Darel, became the fourth French actress to claim she had been harassed by Weinstein while two other French actresses, Judith Godreche and Emma de Caunes, also said they had suffered harassment from him.
