The picture which has been shared on social media has received angry responses from fans all over the world.
Maradona’s lawyer Matias Morla commented on the issue:
“Given the viral nature of an image of Diego on his deathbed, I’m going to personally try and find the scoundrel that took the photograph.
“All those responsible for such an act of cowardice are going to pay.”
Molina has been sacked after taking pictures with Maradona in an open casket and it has been discovered that three other employees of the company also took pictures.
Maradona’s lawyer is still keen on finding the identity of other staff who did the same as Molina.
