Australian Open 2022: Novak Djokovic’s family ‘grateful’ for star’s release
Serbia on Monday,
- Emphasizes Speaking in Serbia after verdict, Djokovic’s brother stated they had actually been up all night for the case
- Australian federal government representative said minister for Immigration might cancel Novak’s visa once again
- Djokovic’s mother, Dijana, stated she was “concerned” after hearing the case may not yet be over
The family of Novak Djokovic stated on Monday that they were grateful to the Australian federal court for judgment in the Serbian World No. 1’s favour in the visa cancellation case.
The drama, however, may not be finished, with the government threatening to cancel his visa a 2nd time. Federal Circuit Court Judge Anthony Kelly reinstated Djokovic’s visa, which was cancelled after his arrival recently due to the fact that officials decided he didn’t satisfy the requirements for an exemption to an entry requirement that all non-citizens be totally vaccinated.
The judge likewise bought the government to release Djokovic within thirty minutes from a Melbourne quarantine hotel where he has actually spent the last four nights.
Speaking in Serbia following the verdict, Djokovic’s sibling, Djordje, stated the family had been up all night watching the case.
“We’re grateful for the justice system of Australia, and I make sure that, you know, justice will go on and the fact will, you know, be genuine all the way,” he stated throughout a briefing in Belgrade.
Regardless of the decision, Australian government legal representative Christopher Tran informed the judge after the judgment that the minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Providers and Multicultural Affairs, Alex Hawke, “will consider whether to work out an individual power of cancellation”.
That would suggest Djokovic could once again face deportation and might miss the Australian Open, which begins on January 17.
Djokovic’s mother, Dijana, stated she was “concerned” after hearing the case may not yet be over.
“I simply hope it, it will stay like this, that he will be free and he will play,” she stated.
Djordje thanked the public for their assistance and worried the family had “nothing but love” for Australia.
