After messing with him for weeks, Australia finally kicks the world’s number one rated player in tennis out of the country.
Australia’s actions against its people have been abhorrent since COVID was first announced. The events have been shocking coming from one of the most livable cities in the world.
We first reported on Australia’s actions related to the world’s number one rated player, Novak Djokovic, a couple of weeks ago. Djokovic entered the country expecting to play in the upcoming Australian Open in Melbourne, one of the top four major tournaments in the world. Instead, he was harassed and eventually place in a quarantine area.
Many Aussies found the government’s actions horrible but they weren’t allowed to share their support of the world’s number one tennis player.
The Conservative Treehouse reported earlier on what happened today in Melbourne.
The Australian Open is scheduled to begin January 17th in Melbourne, the epicenter of Australia’s totalitarian COVID mandates. Australia granted unvaccinated tennis superstar Novak Djokovic a visa to compete. Australian border officials then attempted to block his entry and deport him because he was unvaccinated.
Novak Djokovic took the issue to the federal court in Australia and won his legal case against the Australian government. However, earlier today Australian Immigration Minister Alex Hawke unilaterally cancelled his visa.
Under Australian law, Immigration Minister Hawke has almost unfettered powers to cancel a visa making any legal challenge to the decision very difficult. The official statement from Alex Hawke is AVAILABLE HERE.
Today I exercised my power under section 133C(3) of the Migration Act to cancel the visa held by Mr Novak Djokovic on health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so. This decision followed orders by the Federal Circuit and Family Court on 10 January 2022, quashing a prior cancellation decision on procedural fairness grounds.
