Djokovic resorts the cancellation of its visa and Australia agrees to delay its deportation

Novak Djokovic lawyers have resorted to Australian justice the revocation of Serbian visa to enter the country and, at the moment, the authorities have agreed to delay their deportation, as the lawyer confirms.

The medical exemption granted by the Australian Tennis Federation has not been sufficient for Novak Djokovic to play from day 17 the first Grand Slam of the course without problems. The country's government stopped at the border. The border forces emitted a statement in which they pointed out that he "did not meet the entrance requirements to the country," so the visa of him was canceled.

The Serbian has been transferred this morning to the Hotel Park of the city of Melbourne, which also houses a group of asylum seekers who have been arrested by immigration authorities, after more than eight hours declaring.

The number 1 of the world was retained and interrogated for more than eight hours upon arrival at Melbourne Tullamarine airport by irregularities with the visa. The team had not requested the defendant documentation when it is intended to enter Australia without being vaccinated against the Covid. According to Serbian journalist Sasa Ozmo, he was isolated in an airport room and was not allowed to use his mobile phone.

"I have no idea what is happening, they have my son held for five hours," said his father Srdjan, before the decision to deport him. "This is a struggle for the liberal world, not only by Novak, but by the whole world," he added, in words collected by the Australian newspaper The Age.

The deportation led to intervene the president of Serbia, Aleksander Vucsic, who said in his Instagram that "every Serbia" supported DjoJovic. "Our authorities are taking all possible measures to stop the intimidation of the best tennis player in the shortest time as possible," he added, appealing to international law.

The decision was taken near the Spanish midnight, but the manifestations of different political personalities did not presage anything good for the nine-time winner of the tournament. Jaala Pulford, Minister DeDeportes from the state of Victoria, had been ruled: "We have always been clear by two points: the approval of the visa is a matter of the federal government and medical exemptions are the matter of doctors". The words of Karen Andrews, Australian Minister of the Interior, through a communiqué made public in the morning, were in similar address: "While the Victoria and Tennis Government Australia can allow an unvaccinated player to compete at the Australian Open , is the Government of Australia who will enforce our requirements at the Australian border. "

Scott Morrison, Australian Prime Minister, was blunt, already with the facts consummated: "The visa of Lord Djokovic has been canceled. The rules are the rules. Nad is above them," he said on his Twitter account. The words of him represented a change of position with respect to Tuesday, when he said that the officers would act in accordance with the exemption provided to Nole. A climate close to indignation had been created in Australia, at a time when the pandemic whips again.

The silence of the player has only contributed to threatening the situation more and increasing his unpopularity in a country that has been surpassing the half million semanal contagions by Covid. Craig Tiley, director of the first Grand Slam tournament of the season, commented that it would be good for the player to explain the reasons why he has been granted the medical exemption, after he did not respect the privacy of tennis player.

One of the hypotheses that was handled was that I would have achieved permission for having contracted the disease in the last six months. The Australian Federation confirmed that most of the 26 requests for medical exemption requested were based on this argument.

Nole passed for the first time the Coronavirus in June 2020, during an exhibition tournament organized in Belgrade. Months before, he had manifested itself contrary to the obligation of vaccines. Since then, he has not rushed again. He was the great favorite of the tournament to take advantage in the pulse he keeps with Nadal and Federer for finishing his career with larger.
