The home and office of Diego Maradona’s doctor are being searched by authorities amid multiple accusations of manslaughter in his death.
The late star’s lawyer Matias Moria called for an investigation into his death on Thursday.
“The ambulance took more than half an hour to arrive, which was criminal idiocy,” he said echoing Maradona’s daughters who have suspected the doctor’s involvement in their father’s passing.
Officers swarmed Leopoldo Luque’s home at around 8:40 a.m. Sunday and thorough questioning of the 33-year-old is expected.
“As Luque was Maradona’s personal physician, the decision was taken to search his house and surgery office to look for documents that could determine whether, during Maradon’s treatment at home, there were any irregularities,” police said.
Maradona died Wednesday after suffering a heart attack. He has been receiving treatment at his home following brain surgery to remove a blood clot.
