He was also reportedly the secretary of the Malta Cycling Federation and a member of Qormi Kia Cycling Club.

Judge Edwina Grima stated that there was no reason to change the sentence and thus confirmed the 3 year jail time Taliana will be facing. The accident happened at around 5:15 am in Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq, with Micallef’s body being found further down the road than the car’s bumper with the registration number. Taliana continued to drive after the incident.
