The Argentinian public prosecutor’s office is trying to find out whether errors have been made in the medical treatment of Maradona and whether there may have been negligence. Nine experts will, among other things, examine the medical file of the former world football player on 8 March. The doctors who performed the autopsy have also been summoned to the meeting.

Next Thursday, the Public Prosecution Service will continue with the interrogation of several involved and witnesses, including the doctor who was responsible for the home care that Maradona received just before his death. Two daughters of the deceased Argentinian idol are also required to provide a statement.

Suspects

Five other persons, including brain surgeon and personal physician Leopoldo Luque and psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov, have already been identified as suspects in the criminal case, with unintentional manslaughter as a formal charge. Maradona’s two daughters, Gianinna (31) and Jana (24), hold Luque responsible for their father’s declining health, resulting in death.

Maradona suffered liver, kidney and circulatory disorders at his death. His heart was twice the size of normal. During his turbulent life, he struggled with addiction to cocaine and alcohol and depression.
