Update 13-2-2020

Wellicht sneller dan verwacht: Pachauri is overleden aan zijn hartkwaal. De Indiase media brengen het kort in hun tweets en in hun commentaar (het is al vrijdag in India):

overlijden Pachauri

Zo reageert TERI op zijn overlijden volgens India Today:

Former Teri chief RK Pachauri died at the age of 79 on Friday after prolonged cardiac ailment.

Teri Director General Ajay Mathur said on Friday that former Teri chief RK Pachauri has passed away.
Teri on Twitter wrote, “It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing away of Dr RK Pachauri, the Founder Director of TERI. The entire TERI family stands with the family of Dr Pachauri in this hour of grief.”
“Teri is what it is today because of Dr Pachauri’s untiring perseverance. He played a pivotal role in making us a leading organisation in the sustainability space,” Ajay Mathur, Director General, Teri, who succeeded Pachauri in 2015 said.
“Dr Pachauri’s contribution to global sustainable development is unparalleled. His leadership of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change [IPCC] laid the ground for climate change conversations today,” Nitin Desai, Chairman, Teri, said.
“In this solemn moment, friends and colleagues of Dr Pachauri are invited to share their remembrances, including photos, at rkp-memoriam@teri.res.in,” Teri tweeted.

Former Teri chief RK Pachauri, who was admitted to the Escorts Heart Institute in New Delhi with a prolonged cardiac ailment, was put on life support on Tuesday.
Pachauri (79) underwent an open heart surgery at the hospital, they said.
The environmentalist had suffered a heart stroke in Mexico in July last year, said a source close to him, adding that he was critical and put on ventilator.
“He was suffering from cardiac issues. He had an open heart surgery but was put on ventilator,” the sources said.

Pachauri had to step down from his position in The Energy and Resources Institute (Teri) after he was accused of sexually harassing a former woman colleague.
A district court had in October 2018 framed molestation charges against Pachauri, who had repeatedly denied the allegations levelled against him.
During the court hearings, Pachauri had sought a speedy trial saying he and his family were suffering from hardship since 2015, when an FIR was lodged in the matter.
After the FIR was registered in February 2015, Pachauri was given anticipatory bail the next month.

Het in 2015 gestarte proces tegen voormalig TERI chef en IPCC voorzitter Pachauri zal mogelijk stoppen. Na jaren van vertraging is de nu 79-jarige Pachauri te ziek om aanwezig te kunnen zijn. Hij is met zeer ernstige hartklachten opgenomen, geopereerd en verblijft in een intensive care afdeling van het Escort Heart Institute in Delhi, aldus India Today van vandaag.

In de tussentijd heeft hij in vrijheid overal praatjes gehouden en werd hij met alle egards ontvangen in onder andere Mexico en Duitsland, terwijl zijn advocaten druk bezig waren met alle kleine stapjes in de procesvoering, die toch al niet gekenmerkt werd door een hoog tempo. Mocht hij komen te overlijden, dan stopt het proces, en zal hij als Nobelprijswinnaar (namens de IPCC) uitgebreid worden herdacht.
