The Serbian Foreign Ministry expressed a verbal protest to Australian Ambassador Daniel Emery in connection with the detention in Melbourne and the possible deportation of the first racket of the world, Novak Djokovic.
Deputy Foreign Minister of the Balkan state Nemanja Starovich demanded to improve the detention of Djokovic, who is awaiting the decision of the Federal District Court in the migration detention center in Melbourne, reports RIA Novosti.
Starovich called the attitude towards the best tennis player in the world inappropriate.
Recall that Djokovic on January 5 tried to enter Australia on a visa that does not allow for a medical exception from vaccination.
On January 10, the court must make its decision.
The 20-time Grand Slam champion may be banned from entering Australia for three years.
The Australian Open, the first Grand Slam tournament in 2022, will take place from 17 to 30 January in Melbourne.
Earlier, the President of Serbia called the possible deportation of Djokovic from Australia political harassment.
