This Wednesday a march took place in the Obelisk demanding justice for the death of Diego Armando Maradona under the slogan: “He did not die, they killed him.”

“He did not die, they killed him!” the organisers of the rally said in materials sent out on social media. “Justice for Diego. Trial and punishment of the guilty.”

Considered one of the world’s greatest football players, the 60-year-old died in November after suffering a heart attack in the city of Tigre.

Maradona holds god-like status in his home country after leading Argentina to a World Cup title in 1986 and tens of thousands of Argentines poured out into streets after his death to pay tribute and say goodbye.


This call was carried out by the ex-wife of the Argentine star and his daughters, Dalma and Giannina Maradona.  

On Monday, a medical board convened by Argentina’s public prosecutor met to analyse Maradona’s death on November 25, just weeks after he underwent brain surgery on a blood clot.

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.

Investigators are looking at whether members of Maradona’s medical team did not adequately treat him and whether to mount a case for wrongful death. A conviction could result in a prison sentence of up to 15 years.

The panel of experts, made up of 10 official specialists and 10 more selected by the interested parties, is due to deliver its findings in two or three weeks.

The relatives of the former soccer player of the Argentine team stayed in the march for approximately 15 minutes since there was a lot of people and they feared for his safety.

The march began at five in the afternoon with clear messages against Matías Morla, Diego Maradona’s lawyer, and the doctor Leopoldo Luque, attributing to the two the greatest responsibility for the death of the idol.

Meanwhile, Morla is about to go to live in the United States, where he has several job offers.

In late December, an autopsy showed that Maradona – who had battled alcohol and drug addiction for much of his life – did not consume alcohol or illegal narcotics in the days before his death.
