Entertainer Rolf Harris has been stripped of his Order of Australia honours, after being jailed for child sex offences.

Harris was sentenced to five years and nine months jail after being found guilty in a UK court last year of 12 historic sex offences.

Rolf Harris appeal rejected

Earlier this month there were reports Harris had been questioned by British police over further allegations of sexual offences.

The Governor General has now terminated Harris’ appointments of Officer and Member of the Order of Australia in the General Division.
