=== (AGENDAWATCHDOG) === According to a report by an expert medical panel, late Argentine football icon, Diego Maradona, was abandoned to his fate prior to his death.
The 70-page document released by the panel on Friday, concluded that Maradona, who succumbed to a heart attack on November 25 at the age of 60, “started to die at least 12 hours before” the moment he was found dead in his bed, just weeks after undergoing brain surgery on a blood clot.
A panel of 20 experts was convened by Argentina’s public prosecutor to examine the cause of death and to determine if there had been any negligence. Maradona’s neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luque, psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov and psychologist Carlos Diaz are under investigation as well as two nurses, a nursing coordinator and a medical coordinator.
The finding could result in a case of wrongful death, and a prison sentence of up to 15 years if convicted.
