Djokovic detained in Australia – Dünya Gazetesi


After the Australian government’s visa was revoked for the second time, the number one name in men’s singles tennis, Serbian racquet Novak Djokovic, who applied to the court again for the annulment of the decision, will be determined by the decision of the hearing to be held on Sunday.

After Australian Immigration Minister Alex Hawke canceled his visa using his powers, the Australian Federal Circuit and Family Court referred Novak Djokovic’s case to the Federal Court of Australia.

With the decision of the hearing, which will be held at 9.30 am local time on Sunday, it will be determined whether Serbian racquet Djokovic can stay in Australia.

If the hearing is held with 3 judges, the appeal is closed

Federal Court Justice David O’Callaghan is reportedly trying to decide whether the trial will be handled by a single judge or by a panel of three judges.

According to the law, if the hearing is held with three judges, the appeal for the decision is closed.

While Djokovic’s lawyers have agreed to submit their written defense drafts by midday, the lawyers representing Secretary Hawke must submit their written responses to the court by 10 PM tonight.

The lawyers of the famous tennis player claimed that Hawke canceled his visa on the grounds that Djokovic was seen as a symbol of an anti-vaccine society.

Stating that Djokovic did not act in this direction in Australia, the lawyers argue that the visa cancellation is therefore legally invalid.

It has been reported that Djokovic, who has been detained by Australian Border Protection officials, will be transferred to the refugee detention center, but it is not known which detention center he will be transferred to and where he is held so far.

The famous racket, which is guaranteed by the court to stay in Australia until the case is concluded, is expected to be detained in this process.

What happened?

Djokovic, who did not disclose whether he had a COVID-19 vaccine or not, stated that he would participate in the Australian Open Tennis Tournament, which will be held in Melbourne on 17-30 January, with a medical exemption decision.

After reaching Melbourne, Djokovic, whose exemption decision was not accepted and his entry visa was canceled, was sent to the hotel where the refugees were held.

Djokovic, who has 9 grand slam titles at the Australian Open and 20 grand slam titles in his career, appealed the visa cancellation and took the decision to the federal court.

In the case before the Australian Federal Circuit and Family Court, Djokovic was found to be right, and the Australian government’s visa cancellation decision was lifted.

Djokovic, who left the hotel where he was held after his decision, continued his training at Rod Laver Arena, where the finals of the Australian Open Tennis Tournament were played.

Examining the documents from Djokovic’s lawyers, Australian Immigration Minister Alex Hawke announced that he canceled the Serbian tennis player’s visa by using his powers, yesterday evening.
