According to ESPN, the government wants to know if there was a case of negligence during the late footballer's treatment after the operation.

And if that can be established to be true, then the accused will be made to face a criminal case for their roles in his death.

Leopoldo Luque, the neurosurgeon who performed Maradona's brain surgery, and psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov, who treated him, are being investigated as their homes and offices were searched shortly after his death.

Psychologist Carlos Diaz, who treated Maradona in the months prior to his passing, and nurses Dahiana Gisela Madrid and Ricardo Almiron, have now been placed under investigation, according to sources from San Isidro's Prosecutors' Office.

After Maradona's death, his lawyer, Matias Morla, requested a full investigation of the circumstances of the footballing legend's death, criticising what he said was a slow response by emergency service.

Maradona's eldest daughters, Dalma and Giannina, hold Luque and Morla, who had hired Luque, responsible and demand that "justice is done."
