Diego Maradona’s doctor, Leopoldo Luque, is under investigation after the death of the Argentina legend over possible medical negligance.
Reports suggest that Argentinian police ordered a search on Luque’s home and office, with the ex-footballer’s personal physician being asked to provide evidence as the death is being treated as a possible manslaughter.
Luque was at his home as police carried out the search while other officers raided his clinic.
No charges have been made as yet, but prosecutors are looking to establish whether Maradona was the victim of medical negligence prior to his death earlier this week at 60-years-old.
Maradona’s daugthers, Dalma and Giannina, sparked the investigation after they questioned the medication their father was given.
The Napoli icon’s lawyer, Matias Morla, has also called for a probe into Maradona’s death, claiming the emergency response was far from satisfactory.
Officers searching Luque’s house and work were looking for details of the medicine given to Maradona and the appropriate health records.
A source from the judiciary told La Nacion: ‘As Luque was Maradona’s personal physician the decision was taken to search his house and surgery to look for documents that could determine whether, during Maradona’s treatment at home, there were any irregularities.’
