LONDON (AP) - A Mexican journalist who was arrested and threatened after exposing a pedophile ring is to receive a major writing prize.
Cacho was arrested, charged with libel and received death threats after publishing a book about a child sex abuse ring involving business figures in Cancun in 2005.
The prize is presented alongside an award to a British writer, created in honor of Nobel Prize-winning playwright Harold Pinter. This year’s winner is Hanif Kureishi, whose screenplays and novels include “My Beautiful Laundrette” and “The Buddha of Suburbia.”
The awards will be presented in London on Oct. 20.
