An Argentine court has decided to hold eight medical professionals accountable for the death of football legend Diego Maradona.

The court said a trial date for the eight defendants has not yet been set but is unlikely to begin before next year.

The report of the medical commission, previously given to the prosecutor’s office, concluded that Maradona fought for more than 12 hours, did not receive proper treatment and his life could have been saved if he had been given proper medical care.

Three judges of the Court of Appeal of San Isidro, on the outskirts of the Argentine capital Buenos Aires, confirmed charges brought by prosecutors of negligent homicide against members of Maradona’s medical team.

Neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luque and psychiatrist Agustin Kozakova were accused of failing to help Maradona.

Maradona’s medical team also included psychologist Carlos Diaz, doctors Nancy Forlini, Pedro de Spagna, nursing coordinator Mariano Peroni, and nurses Ricardo Almirón and Dahiana Madrid.

Maradona, who led Argentina to World Cup victory for the second time in 1986, died at the age of 60 in November 2020 due to heart failure after undergoing brain surgery a few days earlier.
