Maradona: Eight health professionals will be tried for premeditated murder

 Eight health professionals are expected to stand trial on the charge of premeditated murder, for the death of Diego Maradona.

Eight health professionals will be tried in Argentina for premeditated murder, at the closing of the "curtain" of the investigation into the death of the world football legend, Diego Maradona, in November 2020, at the age of 60 from a heart attack.

A judge in San Isidro, Argentina, has accepted the lawsuit against the health professionals in question, including a neurosurgeon and family doctor, a clinician, a psychiatrist, a psychologist and a nursing director.

The prosecutor, in fact, had requested the specific trial in April, pointing out shortcomings and negligence in the care of the Argentine star, according to the APE-MPE.

The suspects will be tried for "simple homicide with dolus eventualis", a crime characterized when a person commits negligence knowing that it can cause the death of someone.

They face sentences ranging from 8 to 25 years in prison, but will have to appear free at trial, as the San Isidro prosecutor never requested their pre-trial detention.

According to prosecutors, the staff responsible for Maradona was "the protagonist of an unprecedented, completely incomplete and reckless home treatment" and had committed a "series of improvisations, mismanagement of the whole situation".

An expert report, in the context of the investigation, had concluded that the former player had been "left to his fate" by his medical team, leading him to a slow death.

However, the date for the trial has not been announced yet.
