| Reading time: 2 minutes
Vit has been four days since Diego Maradona died. According to the Télam news agency, investigations have now been started against the personal doctor of the Argentine football legend for “negligent homicide”. The doctor’s office and the apartment of Leopoldo Luque were searched on Sunday, as pictures on Argentine television showed and judicial circles confirmed to Télam.
Decisive for the investigators, it is said, were testimony from Maradona’s daughters Dalma, Gianinna and Jana.
Evidence is in progress
According to the information, they disagreed with the way Maradona was last treated in his residence. “The investigation and the preservation of evidence are still in progress, with some testimony also being made by direct relatives,” said the attorney general in San Isidro.
Luque confirmed the searches to journalists on Sunday. He is cooperating with the public prosecutor, who have confiscated medical records on Maradona and electronic devices. With tears he said he had nothing to blame. “I’m proud of everything I’ve done for Diego.” He was like a father to him.
The sports world had remembered Maradona at the weekend with minutes of silence, a mourning ribbon and sometimes touching gestures. The tough guys from Argentina’s national rugby team, for example, had tears in their eyes. In honor of the late Diego Maradona, Sam Cane, captain of New Zealand’s famous “All Blacks”, put a black jersey with the number 10 in the opponent’s half of the field on Saturday before the traditional haka dance.
