The Australian Department of Immigration has canceled Novak Djokovic’s visa for the second time, as the world’s No. 1 tennis player stopped in Melbourne as he went to participate in the Australian Open. From what has been learned, there is a risk of a three-year ban from Australia.
Australian Immigration Minister Alex Hawke said in a statement that the decision to cancel Novak Djokovic’s visa was taken “for reasons of health and public order”. The decision states that the Serbian player, who has been chasing a record 21/o Grand Slam title at the Australian Open starting Monday, will be banned from entering the country for a period of three years, except under certain circumstances.
A judge in Australia has decided to hold an emergency hearing today in the case of tennis player Novak Djokovic. The same Australian court reports.
Novak Djokovic’s visa revocation – as Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said commenting on the decision – aims to protect the result of the “sacrifices” made by Australians during the Covid-19 pandemic. “Australians have made many sacrifices during this pandemic and rightly want to protect the impact of those sacrifices,” Morrison said in a statement, referring to the Serbian player’s condition.
“The rules should be clear. He admitted he made a mistake, but it’s a huge mistake and not a hero’s mistake. The hero can also be seen in the newspapers. He certainly wasn’t a good example.” “I think the Australian government will make the right choice,” Pierpaolo Celeri, undersecretary for health, is an expert on the case involving Djokovicai, who said from the microphones of Radio Italy Awakened, on Radio Cusano Campos. “Here – he says – we have to realize that there is a problem and that the rules must be followed, and what is more that when it comes to a character to be seen, the rule must be an example. It is like when they ask a popular character if he has been vaccinated, one cannot He turns to privacy. If at least you haven’t been vaccinated, explain why. The rules apply to everyone, but when you’re a public figure, you probably deserve a little more.”
