Novak Djokovic’s quest to defend his Australian Open title has bitten the mud following the choice of the federal government to cancel his ban.
The World Number 1 tennis participant, was ready for the decision from the Australian authorities after his visa denial was cancelled by the federal courtroom on Monday, January tenth, 2022. Djokovic was denied a visa into the nation forward of the primary grand slam after failing to submit the precise COVID-19 vaccination or medical exemption necessities.
Australian immigration minister, Alex Hawke stated in an announcement launched on Friday, January 14th, 2022. According to him, Djokovic’s visa was cancelled based mostly on well being and good order grounds and for the curiosity of the general public.
Today, I exercised my energy beneath part 133C(3) of the Migration Act to cancel the visa held by Mr Novak Djokovic on well being and good order grounds, on the premise that it was within the public curiosity to take action. The resolution adopted orders by the Federal Circuit and Family Court on 10 January 2022, quashing a previous cancellation resolution on procedural equity grounds. In making this resolution, I rigorously thought-about data offered to me by the Department of Home Affairs, the Australian Border and Mr Djokovic. The Morrison Government is firmly dedicated to defending Australia’s borders, significantly in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. I believe the officers of the Department of Home Affairs and the Australian Borders Force who work day by day to serve Australia’s curiosity in more and more difficult operational atmosphere.
Djokovic and his crew want to enchantment the choice earlier than the grand slam begins at Melbourne however the main constraint is having to get a courtroom to take a seat earlier than his recreation.
