Novak Djokovic’s Australian Visa Gets Suspended Again And He Plans To Appeal

January 14, 2022 / Posted by:

Well, Jesus’ lawyers better prepare for a defamation lawsuit, because Novak Djokovic‘s father will probably write another delusional letter where he compares his entitled whine-fest to the crucifixion of God’s son. 34-year-old Novak arrived in Melbourne on January 4 for the Australian Open, but he got detained and had his travel visa revoked after officials looked at his medical exemption from the COVID-19 vaccine and decided he did not “meet entry requirements.” Novak appealed that decision and on January 10, a judge reinstated his visa and he was released from immigration detention. But then Novak admitted that he had tested positive for Coronavirus (for the second time) the last month and broke quarantine rules by doing an interview. Novak also lied to Australian authorities about his positive COVID test. And now an immigration minister has revoked his visa again and he’s facing deportation to Serbia. But the #1 men’s tennis player is appealing again.

Australian Immigration Minister Alex Hawke canceled Djokovic’s visa for a second time today and so there was an emergency hearing at the Australian Federal Circuit and Family Court. Here’s Alex Hawke’s statement about his decision, via CNN:

“Today I exercised my power under section 133C(3) of the Migration Act to cancel the visa held by Mr Novak Djokovic on health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so…”

“In making this decision, I carefully considered information provided to me by the Department of Home Affairs, the Australian Border Force (ABF) and Mr Djokovic. The Morrison Government is firmly committed to protecting Australia’s borders, particularly in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

CNN says that Novak will be taken into custody on Saturday and he’ll have another hearing to appeal the decision on Sunday ahead of his tennis match at the Australian Open on Monday where he’s still scheduled to play against Miomir Kecmanovic.

Novak Djokovic will be detained by Australian immigration officials Saturday, ahead of a decisive court hearing Sunday where detailed arguments will be presented on whether the tennis star should be deported.

Judge Anthony Kelly who presided over the hearing, said the government had agreed not to deport Djokovic before the case has concluded.

Kelly also said Djokovic will be allowed to visit his lawyers’ offices Saturday to prepare for his Sunday hearing, before eventually being moved back into pre-immigration detention, as required under Australian law.

The Australian Border Force is going to interview Novak at 8:00 am Saturday local time which will be at an undisclosed location “agreed between the parties” so that there’s no “media circus.” Once he gets into contact with the border officials, they’ll take him to his lawyer’s office, and then to the detainment center where he’ll wait for his court hearing.

This is such an embarrassing mess. This is the most shameful thing to happen in Australia since that reporter chose not to listen to Adele‘s new album!
