The lawyers will seek that the lawyer deepens, together with the environment closest to the ex-footballer, some reason why the star “should die”
The request of the daughters of Diego Armando Maradona so that the investigation into the death of their father is not exhausted with medical responsibilities and progress on the so-called “environment” took effect: this Monday, prosecutors will hear as a witness for the first time in the framework of the file to the lawyer Matías Morla, who was the representative and attorney-in-fact of Diez until the day of his death.
Dalma and Gianinna Maradona have always had – and even more so after Diego’s death – a strong confrontation with the lawyer Morla, who they accuse not only of preventing them from having a frequent relationship with their father and of having appropriated assets and benefits from the brands he owned, but also of having responsibility in the death and that is why they want the Justice to investigate it.
Last Tuesday, the prosecutors in charge of the case, Patricio Ferrari, Cosme Iribarren and Laura Capra made room for a request that had been made by the lawyers of Dalma and Gianinna, Federico Guntin and Marcelo Sverdlik Warschavsky, and summoned Morla for Monday , at 11 in the General Prosecutor’s Office of San Isidro.

The statement will be made in person and the parties’ lawyers were notified that, as a preventive measure due to the coronavirus pandemic, they will be able to participate in the hearing through the SIMP Video Call System.
In a letter delivered to the prosecutors on September 22, the lawyers insisted on not exhausting the investigation into the death of El Diez with medical responsibilities, but rather digging deeper to find out if there was any reason why Diego “should die” and that cite to declare as “test measures” to five members of the “environment”, among them, Morla.
For the complaint, the testimonies and the inquiries that were taken so far, it appears that, “within the unfortunate expression of ‘environment’, there are a cluster of characters with a absolutely discretionary management of the deceased’s life, as well as his ties, affections, addictions, his patrimony, his isolation, his suppression of will, and even his submission to servitude “.
Guntin and Sverdlik Warschavsky attribute to these people, among other issues, “the supply of narcotics, alcohol” and the dubbing of “the signatures of the ill-fated Maradona.”
In addition to Morla, this week two other people very close to El Diez must also appear to expand their testimonies: one of them is Morla’s brother-in-law, Christian Maximiliano Pomargo, who was Maradona’s personal secretary and lived with him; and the other is the nephew of former fubolista Jhonatan Espósito, who also lived in the house in Tigre where Diego died on November 25, 2020.
Pomargo will have to appear next Wednesday at 10, while Esposito will do it the same day but at 13.
The prosecutors also asked that the notary public Sandra Verónica Iapolsky and the accountant Andrea Trimarchi appear to testify, who must testify as witnesses on Thursday at 10 and 13 respectively.
His death and the investigation
Maradona, the greatest figure in the history of world football, died at the age of 60 on November 25, 2020 at noon, in a house in the private neighborhood of San Andrés, in Tigre, where he was passing through the domiciliary hospitalization that is under criminal investigation in the justice of San Isidro.

The autopsy determined that he died as a result of “acute pulmonary edema secondary to exacerbated chronic heart failure” and a “dilated cardiomyopathy” was discovered in his heart.
Following the conclusions of a medical board, seven health professionals were charged with “simple homicide with eventual intent”, a criminal figure that provides for 8 to 25 years in prison and which was chosen by prosecutors after an investigation in which they concluded that Maradona’s medical team was “deficient”, “reckless” and “indifferent”, and that he knew that the “10” could die and did nothing to prevent it.
The defendants are the ex-footballer’s neurosurgeon and family doctor, Leopoldo Luque (39); the psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov (36); the psychologist Carlos Ángel “Charly” Díaz (29); the nurses Ricardo Omar Almirón (38) and Dahiana Gisela Madrid (36); its coordinator, Mariano Ariel Perroni (40); and the coordinating physician of the Swiss Medical company Nancy Forlini (52).
