Argentina Calls Medical Board To Rule On Maradona Death
Argentina’s public prosecutor’s office will convene a medical board on March 8 to decide whether or not late football legend Diego Maradona was given proper treatment before his death, legal sources said on Tuesday.
Maradona died of a heart attack on November 25, weeks after undergoing brain surgery on a blood clot.
Investigators are trying to determine whether or not there was negligence in Maradona’s health care before he died.
Nine experts will be called on March 8 including the medical examiners that took part in Maradona’s autopsy.
The public prosecutor in San Isidro, a suburb of the capital Buenos Aires, has also called two more witnesses to appear before investigators on Thursday: a nursing coordinator and the doctor tasked with coordinating Maradona’s home care during the days before he died.
Five other people, including neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luque and psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov, are already under investigation in the involuntary manslaughter probe.
