In two weeks it will be

three months after the death of Diego Maradona.

What happened in the rented house in the San Andrés neighborhood remains uncertain, but there is

a key witness

in the cause carried out by the children of

El Diez


Romina Milagros Rodríguez or simply Monona,

the cook of the then Gymnastics coach, who this Wednesday expanded his statement. 

Monona arrived at 11:48 at the San Isidro Attorney General's Office.

It was not an easy entry: due to the siege of the press, the cook took two minutes to travel the 20 meters between the place where a car had left her to the door that she had to cross to meet the prosecutors.

In that period, he did not want to give details of what he was going to tell them but he did respond with emotion when a journalist asked him if he missed Maradona:

"I miss Diego a lot," he


For almost

three hours,


spoke of the people she saw passing by the houses where she lived with Maradona and contributed what she saw on that morning of November 25.

He also referred to the presence of

alcohol and drugs in the home

, according to Todo Noticias.

Rodríguez said that Diego was often visited by friends, including Carlos Orlando 


Ibáñez, pointed out by Maradona's environment as the alleged

perpetrator of giving him marijuana in mid-2020 while he was living in Brandsen's house.

Monona confirmed seeing him on several occasions on the Campos de Roca property and said he was

carrying wine and beer.

In addition to stating that there was alcohol in the house in the San Andrés neighborhood where Diego Maradona died, he gave details of who was on the 60th birthday of the Ten, on October 30, less than a month before his death.

Instead, he explained that he

sometimes smelled marijuana but never found traces of the drug during his cleaning duties.

"If he had had the proper treatment, he would not be dead today,"

Mario Baudry, the lawyer for


Fernando, the son that Maradona had with Verónica Ojeda,

told the media

when leaving the Prosecutor's Office.

The lawyer for the psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov, Vadim Mischanchuk, rejected Baudry's hypothesis. "

What we argue from the outset is that due to the findings of the histopathological study after the autopsy and the amount of pathology in different organs, this statement does not exist today. it has no


evidence, "

explained Mischanchuk.

In the program Los Ángeles de la Mañana (El Trece), meanwhile, the journalist Maite Peñoñori gave more details on that day of the death of Diez:

"Monona told Diego's nephew, Jonathan, to go give him the medication and he goes with Maxi, who immediately comes back and says he doesn't react. "

"We all went into the room. We found Diego on his back with cold extremities. They began to give him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. The psychologist calls the ambulance and they took turns between the nurse and the psychiatrist to give him CPR manually. The first ambulance he arrived and the doctor and nurse continued CPR and injected things into him, "

Peñoñori quoted the cook.

In addition, he contributed that during the testimony Monona said that

the medication was given to Maradona by the nurses,

except when he did not want it, that he did accept it for her or her nephew.

"They had Diego's hidden medication in a tupperware, but the whole time Monona was there, she never saw that Diego had the intention of stealing the medication,

" said the journalist from El Trece's morning cycle.

In front of the media that were waiting for her at the exit of the San Isidro Courts, on the other hand, Monona was brief:

"They summoned me to enlarge the statement, nothing more. I am not going to say anything because later I have problems."

The one who spoke the most with the journalists was Carlos Cotar, therapeutic companion of the Gymnastics coach who was also summoned to testify this Wednesday.

"I told the truth about what happened from Saturday the 7th to Friday the 13th, which was how long we were there.

The truth about what I experienced. I was not with the idol of my life, but with a person who had a problem . I was with the daughters and the team inside the clinic, trying to do the best possible so that he was well, "he summarized.

Asked about how he had seen him in that week after the intervention for a hematoma on his head, Cotar explained: "I saw him as a person who just came out of an operation, in a postoperative period.

I did not see him with anxiety or with the desire to consume ".

"I was only in Nordelta for one day, when we arrived from the Olivos Clinic. He saw me when I entered Tigre, he sat in an armchair, he was surprised to see me. There I realized that they had not warned him that I was following outpatient treatment", projection.

Regarding this decision to abruptly end a required treatment, the therapeutic companion pointed out to the psychiatrist Cosachov.

"After the 13th they told me to leave, that they were going to communicate with us again. The person who told me was Agustina. From there I sent several audios that will surely be made public, asking if they were going to change the treatment modality,

let me know anything and count on me, "he revealed.

Although he stressed that

those who made the medical decisions were "Carlos (Díaz), the psychologist, and Leopoldo Luque."

Leopoldo Luque, Diego Maradona's personal doctor, already has two accusations in court.

He presented a letter requesting the release from prison and will be called to an investigation for "wrongful death."

Precisely, Cosachov, Díaz and Luque are already accused in the case, as well as two nurses from the Medidom company who cared for Maradona before his death: Ricardo Omar Almirón, who attended him on the night / early morning shift, and Gisella Dahiana Madrid , who did it on the shift tomorrow.
