Maradona’s daughters are summoned to testify

The Justice of Argentina reconvened to give testimonial statements to two of the recognized daughters of Diego
Maradona in the case in which the death of the ex-footballer is being investigated, legal sources reported Tuesday. Specific, Jana Y Giannina Maradona must appear this Thursday and Friday, respectively, at the Prosecutor’s Office of the Buenos Aires town of San Isidro, in charge of the investigation.

The summons to both will serve to expand the testimonial statements that they already provided a few days after, on November 25, his father died at age 60, an event in which it is a matter of determining whether there was eventual negligence on the part of the team attending physician.

In turn, it was learned that the Prosecutor’s Office decided to include as investigated two other members of the Argentine star’s medical service, Nancy Forlini and Mariano Perroni, for alleged wrongful death, “taking into account the conclusions of the analysis of the content of the material that was extracted of cell phone devices “linked to the case, according to the court ruling to which Efe had access.

Justice began last Friday to review two mobile phones that belonged to Maradona. He had previously confiscated and analyzed the mobile phones of the neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luque and the psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov, identified as the main responsible for the medical treatment that the star received before his death. The San Isidro Attorney General’s Office is also investigating the work of the psychologist Carlos Díaz and that of the nurses Dahiana Gisela Madrid and Ricardo Almirón.

Maradona, 60, was admitted to a clinic in the city of La Plata on November 2, 2020 due to anemia and dehydration and a day later he was transferred to a sanatorium in the Buenos Aires town of Olivos, where he was operated on by Luque of a subdural hematoma.

On November 11, he was discharged from the sanatorium, but with a home stay to continue under treatment.

On November 25, he died in a private neighborhood on the outskirts of Buenos Aires and the autopsy determined that he died as a consequence of “acute lung edema secondary to exacerbated chronic heart failure.” They also discovered a “dilated cardiomyopathy” in his heart.
