The family of an eight-year-old girl who died at Makarios hospital have moved to report a case of medical negligence.

Kessariani Piripitsi died on Saturday under conditions that are being investigated.

“Her mother has filed a written report, saying her daughter’s death could have potentially been the result of actions or oversights by medical staff,” police spokesman Christos Andreou told AlphaNews.

Officers are currently investigating the matter while a postmortem will also be carried out.

The family’s lawyer Ioannis Generalis said the young girl suffered from acute kidney failure, for which she had been hospitalised multiple times.
