Agent 007 that stopped Djokovic

No one goes over the Australian barrier held by the Superstree Michael Outram. Well, almost nobody. Because he did get him the younger brother of the Hollywood Zac Efron star. It was in April last year, when the borders continued hermetically closed. The Brother of the Actor, Dylan, achieved an exemption from the government of the state of New South Wales.

That did not like anything to the thousands of Australian citizens who continued stranded abroad without being able to return to their country. But OUTRAM, guardian of the borders of the Pacific nation, questioned before an audience of politicians in Canberra, justified the entrance of the little Ephron by saying that it came with a mega project that would leave more than two million dollars to the film industry filmmaker from the country. But several senators accused OUTRAM to prevent the rich and famous rather than Australian families who were trapped abroad.

Michael Outram is the Commissioner of the Australian Border Force, an agency of the Ministry of the Interior known for its acronym in English, ABF. It was created seven years ago by merging the customs service with the Department in charge of immigration issues. Outram, which began his career as a policeman in London in the 80s, is the boss of the agency since 2018.

Before that, he directed covert operations against drug trafficking, pursued multiple cases of corruption, anti-terrorism commanded on the ground, worked with intelligence agencies from all over the world and was at the forefront of the national witness protection program. For all this he received, in 2014, the Medal of the Australian police. He is one of the most similar patriotic profiles to the figure of Agent 007 of Ian Fleming.

This week, OUTRAM is the one who had the last word in the decision that Novak Djokovic did not enter Melbourne with the exemption to vaccine requirements, signed by a single doctor, and approved at first by the Victoria authorities, the State Where Melbourne is located, and officials of the Tennis Federation of the country. Victoria ABF agents arrested and interrogated the number 1, and then cancel their visa and send it to a city hotel until Monday, when a court will dictate if it is allowed to stay and defend the title of champion at the Open of Australia or if it will be deported.

But the agency who runs Outram has already said that the federal authorities are studying not only to expel tennis player, but also the possibility of prohibiting their entry into Australia over the next three years. A possible last movement in which they have had a lot to see some statements from Djokovic's father about him was in the "Australian captivity" and had become "the symbol and leader of the free world".

"Mr. Djokovic is not captive in Australia because it is free to leave at any time when deciding to do it and the country's border strength, safely, it will be easier for it," replied the Australian Minister of Interior, Karen Andrews. Djokovic continues to receive an abrupt rejection and criticism on the part of the vast majority of Australian citizens, who have fulfilled the strict rules to prevent the spread of Covid, managing one of the lowest death rates in the world.

The citizens of Australia (a country that presents more than 684,000 contagions and 2,300 deceased), which have endured long enclosures in their homes and for months they faced strict limits to leave or return to Australia, required to know if the Serbian champion had received A special treatment of the country's sports and policies.

From the criticisms, Craig Tiley, director of the Australia Open, which until now has not opened his mouth since the Djokovic case broke out in his country. A silence that symbolizes for many the failure of its organization and the bad management of the case by the government of Victoria, which allowed the principle that the tennis player will enter the country with an exemption that was not valid for those responsible for border policy Federal, headed by the Dedoor Agent Outram. Tiley has revealed that of 26 applicants only a "handful" of exemptions was granted, some of which, as the ABF said, is now being examined after the cancellation of the entry permit to Djokovic.
