Maradona: Two more names added to investigation list

Late Argentine legend Diego Maradona

Two more medical practitioners have been dragged into the ongoing investigation into the death of Argentina Legend Diego Maradona.

A doctor and a nurse coordinator are the latest individuals to be added to the investigation into the death of Diego Maradona, bringing the total to seven people.

The Argentine legend died following a heart attack on Nov. 25, two weeks after being released from a hospital in Buenos Aires following brain surgery. He was 60.

Nancy Forlini, a doctor from private company Swiss Medical, and Mariano Perroni, the coordinator of Medidom nurses — the health company that treated Maradona in the house where he died — have been included in the probe.

“Let us remember that Perroni was the person who urged nurse [Dahiana Gisela] in Madrid to falsify a report for the company Medidom in which it was stated that that morning he had tried to control Maradona and that [Maradona] had refused, when in reality the nurse had not entered the room,” a judicial source told Telam news agency.

In total, seven individuals, including neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luque, who performed Maradona’s brain surgery, are under investigation by Argentine authorities as they attempt to determine whether there was negligence in his treatment following the operation, and if so, whether those individuals should face a criminal case for manslaughter.

The San Isidro prosecutors’ office will convene with specialists on March 8 to establish whether there was malpractice from those under investigation.
