Luciano Moggi, the former general manager of Italian giants Juventus, is eligible to vote in Malta's local elections. 

Mr Moggi's name appears on the electoral register and his voting document bears an address in Gżira. 

The information came to light after a photo of Mr Moggi's purported voting document was leaked to social media. 

It is not yet known when the Italian official managed to obtain a Maltese permit, though his notorious tactics in the past have raised eyebrows in Malta. Mr Moggi had been handed a life ban by the Italian football federation and sentenced to prison for his role in calciopoli.

Mr Moggi drew universal condemnation for his purported underhand manoeuvres in trying to gain an unfair advantage for Juventus by influencing referee selectors, charges he strenuously denied.

Mr Moggi was initially sentenced to five years and four months in prison, reduced to two years and four months on appeal and then cancelled completely in 2015 when the charges were dropped, even though he was not acquitted.

In spite of all the accusations and criticism levelled at Mr Moggi and the sanctions imposed on the club, many Juventus supporters are adamant that calciopoli was born out of envy for their success and the power wielded by their general manager.
