Australian Immigration Minister Alex Hawke exercised special powers to cancel tennis star Novak Djokovic’s visa for a second time on Friday, saying it was “in the public interest to do so.” Djokovic’s appeal will be heard by the Federal Court of Australia on Sunday, the day before the Australian Open is set to begin.
Unvaccinated tennis star Novak Djokovic won the right to take his fight against deportation from Australia to a Federal Court after the government canceled his visa for the second time over COVID-19 entry regulations.
Novak Djokovic, the top player in men’s tennis and its leading vaccine skeptic, has had his visa canceled for the second time by the government of Australia.
What people are saying?
2dukes I can understand some people are afraid to get vaccinated, but those people should also accept the consequences that come with that instead of trying to side-step rules like nothing’s changed. 100s of 1000s of people have died. This is the best we’ve got.
Renee Absolutely Awesome.He has the right to refuse to be vaccinated & Australia has the right to refuse his entrance into their country. All is right with the world.Thank you Australia for taking the pandemic, vaccines, and public safety concerns seriously.We really appreciate it.
