"No one has ever been stripped of a nobel prize, because this is actually specifically forbidden by the organization which administers the Nobel prizes. According to the Nobel Foundation, "no appeals may be made against the decision of a prize-awarding body with regard to the award of a prize," and no prizes can be revoked after the fact, no matter how controversial they may seem. Despite the existence of several petitions pushing for retraction of controversial Nobel Prizes, it is unlikely that the organization will change its rules to make a revocation possible."
