His lawyer said on Friday that the psychiatrist who was treating Diego Maradona at the time of his death in November denied any responsibility for his death, and the panel of experts attributed it to negligence. 36-year-old Agustina Cosachov (Agustina Cosachov) will tell investigators that the football player “died from coronary artery disease, which has nothing to do with the mental illness he is treating,” his lawyer Vardy Vadim Mischanchuk said when his client arrived for questioning by the prosecutor. “She is a psychiatrist and she has nothing to do with the clinical management of patients,” the lawyer said.
Cosachov, an addiction expert, was one of seven medical professionals investigated for Maradona’s death, a case that has spread throughout Argentina.
Investigation documents show that Kosachev and 39-year-old neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luke are Maradona’s main nursing staff.
The 1986 World Cup champion captain died of a heart attack a few weeks after undergoing brain thrombosis surgery at the age of 60.
Cosachov and psychologist Carlos Díaz, 29, discovered that Maradona had died in a rented house in an exclusive neighborhood in Buenos Aires, where he was receiving home care.
