Court rules, Maradona’s body must be conserved

By Simdi Gloria:-

An Argentine court ruled on Wednesday that the body of late soccer great Diego Maradona “must be conserved” in case his DNA is needed in a paternity case.

Maradona died of a heart attack last month and was buried on Nov. 26 in a cemetery just outside Buenos Aires.

Maradona’s lawyer had previously told Reuters that DNA samples already exist, the court said the former Napoli player’s body must not be cremated at some later date.
Maradona recognized four children in Argentina and one in Italy, which he had during his time as a player in the country.

Five recognized children and six with filiation requests are part of a complex inheritance process in Argentina.

One of the six, Magalí Gil, 25, says she found out two years ago that the soccer icon was her biological father.

The ruling from the National Court of First Instance in Civil Matters No. 56 also said: “Ms. Gil requests that a study be carried out … and that for this purpose the acting prosecutor’s office send a DNA sample.”
