Maradona’s family attend ‘Justice for Diego’ rally


Diego Maradona’s daughters and his ex-wife, Claudia Villafane, were among family members who attended a rally at the Obelisk in Buenos Aires on Wednesday afternoon to demand “Justice for Diego.”

Maradona died of a heart attack in November 2020, two weeks after being released from a hospital in Buenos Aires following brain surgery.

The gathering was announced last week on social media.

Villafane and Maradona’s daughters were seen carrying a banner with the message: “social and judicial condemnation for those guilty.”

Maradona’s youngest son, Diego Fernando, was also present with his mother, Veronica Ojeda.

Seven people, including neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luque, who performed Maradona’s brain surgery two weeks before his death, are under investigation.

Argentinian authorities are attempting to determine if there was negligence in Maradona’s treatment following the operation. Three individuals could face a criminal case for manslaughter if found negligent.
