The Citizen (KZN) - - NEWS -

Stock­holm – Swedish pros­e­cu­tors aban­doned the in­ves­ti­ga­tion against a dis­graced Ital­ian stem cell sci­en­tist sus­pected of in­vol­un­tary man­slaugh­ter in con­nec­tion with three pa­tients who died af­ter wind­pipe trans­plants.

Pros­e­cu­tor Jen­nie Nordin says it can’t be proven that Dr Paolo Mac­chiarini would be guilty of ei­ther caus­ing another’s death or caus­ing bod­ily harm.

Mac­chiarini was fired from Swe­den’s pres­ti­gious Karolin­ska In­sti­tute in March 2016. –
