Haha maybeAt least they have the guts to sepuku themselves... in the anglosphere they would get a golden parachute and a new high-paying management-job.
Actually it wasn't even sepuku (cut your own stomach samurai style ) he just hanged himself
TOKYO—Yoshiki Sasai, a noted stem cell scientist at the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology (CDB) in Kobe, Japan, who co-authored two controversial and later retracted papers that reported a simple way of reprogramming mature cells, was confirmed dead this morning, an apparent suicide. Local media reported he was found hanging from a stairway railing in the RIKEN complex in Kobe. Sasai was rushed to a nearby hospital but efforts to revive him were unsuccessful. He reportedly left a suicide note, but it has not been made public.
