    in 1964 has also rejected

    I have never seen present perfect go with a past adverb as present perfect always focuses on the present. Is this an exception?

    27)The Nobel Prizes have been considered the most important awards for great works....In 1937, Adolf Hitler ordered Germans not to accept Nobel Prizes...Unlike that, "Jean Paul Satre in 1964 has also rejected the prize for personal reasons..."

    I'd call it an error.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    It is an error, as this looks directly translated from French, where that would be the structure used.
