Guilty of causing his friend’s death in traffic accident

The Court has sentenced Terence Tanti to two years’ imprisonment suspended for four years, and to payment of 2,724 euro in court fees, after finding him guilty of causing the death of his 22-year-old friend in a traffic accident in Nadur, Gozo.

The accident goes back to New Year’s Day in 2015 when Tanti impacted with a wall when driving at speed, under the influence of drink and possibly under the influence of illicit substances. Matthew Meilak, a 22-year-old law student, was a passenger with Tanti in the car and lost his life as a result of cranial injuries caused through hitting an electricity pole when he was thrown out of the car.

In handing down sentence, Magistrate Audrey Demicoli stated that all passengers had been with the driver during the private function, and all had been aware that he had consumed alcohol before getting into the car with him. The Magistrate added that another contributory factor had been the fact that the victim was not wearing a seat belt.
