Police in Argentina have opened an investigation to determine the part played by Diego Maradona's surgeon, Leopoldo Luque, in the football legend's death last week at the age of 60. Leopoldo Luque responded to the launch of the investigation for involuntary manslaughter by saying he had done "everything he could, up to the impossible" for an "unmanageable" patient.Prosecutors in San Isidro, near Buenos Aires, said they were investigating Luque, while Argentine television showed police raiding the doctor's surgery and home.A statement from the prosecutors' office later said they had begun analysing material gathered and clarified that "no decisions have been made at the moment regarding the procedural situation of any person".Daughters concerned about treatmentThe probe was triggered by concerns raised by Maradona's daughters Dalma, Gianinna and Jana over the treatment he received for his heart condition at his home in Tigre, north of Buenos Aires, judicial sources said.Maradona died of a heart attack on Wednesday aged 60, and was buried on Thursday at the Jardin de Paz cemetery on the outskirts of the Argentine capital."Our investigations are ongoing, we are talking to witnesses including members of the family," a source close to the San Isidro inquiry said."The clinic had recommended that he go elsewhere to be hospitalised, but the family decided otherwise. His daughters signed for him to be discharged from the hospital," said a family member.Emotional news conferenceLater in the day, Luque, who is no relation to Maradona's former Argentina team-mate of the same name, gave an emotional televised news conference."You want to know what I am responsible for?" the 39-year-old doctor asked between sobs. "For having loved him, for having taken care of him, for having extended his life, for having improved it to the end."Luque said he did "everything he could, up to the impossible" and considered himself a "friend" of Maradona and saw him "as a father, not as a patient".Luque had posted a photograph of himself with Maradona when the former player left hospital on 12 November, eight days after the doctor operated to remove a brain blood clot. Maradona returned home to Tigre where he received round-the-clock medical care and could remain close to his daughters."He should have gone to a rehabilitation centre. He didn't want to," said Luque who called Maradona "unmanageable".

Marimekko Corporation, Press release, 30 November 2020 at 2.00 p.m. As part of its fall 2021 collection, Marimekko will launch its first garments, bags and home items that are printed with a natural dye. The blue shade of the fabrics is the result of collaboration with Natural Indigo Finland, a Finnish company concentrating on natural dyes. Marimekko and Natural Indigo Finland began their collaboration on the industrial use of natural dyes in August 2019. Marimekko’s printing factory in Helsinki has, among other things, been involved in developing the recipe for the blue dye obtained from the woad plant as well as testing the fastness of the dye in use. “It is important for Marimekko to be involved in finding and developing new, more sustainable material solutions for the future, among other things. Our own printing factory in Helsinki offers unique possibilities for testing new fabrics and dyestuffs in the printing process. We are very pleased that, together with Natural Indigo, we have been able to bring a natural indigo dye into use on an industrial scale,” says Minna Kemell-Kutvonen, Marimekko’s Director of Home and Print Design. “We continuously aim to increase the share of sustainable cotton as well as of other more sustainable materials in our products and packaging and to find more environmentally-friendly alternatives to the substances used in the manufacturing processes. The use of natural dyes in textile printing is a very interesting option. It is always a pleasure to find good Finnish partners and together develop solutions that can bring the whole industry forward.” The following items printed with a blue dye obtained from woad will hit the stores in July 2021: Norkko shirts and cotton purses featuring the iconic Unikko design, classic striped Jokapoika shirts as well as fabric, cushion covers and bags in the Silkkikuikka pattern. “The aim of Natural Indigo is to produce dyes sustainably and ethically and so offer the textile industry one way of enhancing sustainability. I am glad that Marimekko early on wanted to engage in this project and participate in furthering the use of natural dyes on an industrial scale,” says Pasi Ainasoja from Natural Indigo Finland. The industrial use of dyes derived from nature is only in its early stages, but the products to be launched as a result of this collaboration prove that natural dyes are an interesting option for textile printing in the future. In addition to the indigo dye obtained from woad, Natural Indigo Finland has also tested extracting yellow, green and gray dyes, for example, from various industry by-products, such as onion skins. The use of natural dyes requires new thinking about pattern design and coloring, as growth conditions, among other things, affect how the color appears on fabric. Also, it is characteristic of indigo obtained from woad, as of all natural dyes, that the intensity of the color changes with washing and use. The launch of the products printed with a natural indigo dye will take place in the 70th anniversary year of Marimekko. Through the decades, Marimekko has remained true to its original mission of bringing joy to life with bold prints and colors. During the whole anniversary year, Marimekko’s prints and colors will be in the limelight. Pictures of the products are available on Marimekko Media Bank: https://mediabank.marimekko.fi/l/K-T_6_7L5gx6 Further information: Asta Halme, Marimekko Communications, tel. +358 9 7587 233 / firstname.lastname@example.org Pasi Ainasoja, Natural Indigo Finland, tel. +358 40 028 2370 / email@example.com DISTRIBUTION: Key media Marimekko is a Finnish lifestyle design company renowned for its original prints and colors.
