The Argentine justice has opened an investigation to determine whether there was negligence in the death of Diego Maradona, the prosecution seeking to know if the global icon received the necessary care.
“There are already irregularities”, said a family member.
Hours after his death, lawyer and friend of Maradona, Matias Morla, denounced the fact “that the ambulance took more than half an hour to reach the house where the 10 was”. He warned that he would go “until the end”.
But neither he nor any member of his family has yet filed a complaint, a court source said.
“The investigation was opened because it is about a deceased person in her home and no one has signed her death certificate. That does not mean that there are suspicions of irregularities”, the same source said, on condition of anonymity.
The 1986 world champion died Wednesday, November 25, 2020 at the age of 60. “secondary acute pulmonary edema and exacerbated chronic heart failure”. He was at his home in Tigre, a town 30 km north of Buenos Aires, where he had been living since November 11, after being released from a clinic where he had been operated on six days earlier for a bruise on his head. .
“Contradictions in the declaration”
“We have to determine whether they did the right thing or not. The nurse (on duty when Maradona died, editor’s note) made a statement to the prosecutor on the day Diego died, and then changed it , to finally go in front of the television and say that what she had indicated was forced on her, there is therefore a certain contradiction in her statement “, said a family member who requested anonymity.
The prosecution is awaiting the results of toxicological tests. He demanded the medical file as well as the recordings of the cameras of the district where Mr. Maradona lived his last days.
Another controversy, the photos of funeral directors posing, thumbs up, next to the open coffin where Maradona’s corpse lay before the wake Thursday, November 26, 2020, scandalized Argentina despite the repeated pardons of one of the authors Friday. Maradona’s lawyer has promised to prosecute the culprits.
The last hours
The witnesses have already started to be heard.
“We were able to establish that (a nurse in charge of looking after him) was the last person to see him alive at around 6.30am local time (9.30am GMT), during the change of guard., the prosecution said in a statement.
In his testimony, the nurse indicated that Madaradona “was resting in bed” and assured “that he was sleeping and breathing normally”.
In addition, the nurse who took over and was present at the time of death then clarified her testimony and assured that she had “heard moving” about an hour later.
Previously, she had indicated that she had seen him sleep at 11 a.m. and had not wanted to disturb him, preferring to wait for the arrival at midday of the psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov and the psychologist Carlos Diaz.
It was they, seeing that Maradona did not react by trying to wake him, who sounded the alarm. A neighborhood doctor tried to resuscitate him.
The first ambulance arrived at 12:27 p.m., the prosecution said.
