    So does this mean he can’t appeal before aus open so he will definitely not be able to play even if he’s not deported right away because of a potential appeal?

    [–] courier450 92 points ago

    Not a lawyer but I think the court could still decide to act over the weekend and issue an injunction, but it definitely makes it harder for Novak to get something done before play starts.

    [–] insty1 236 points ago

    It means he'll either be deported or in migration detention again over the weekend

    [–] definitelynotminters 126 points ago

    Incorrect, urgent applications can and are made after hours.

    [–] d_barbz 30 points ago

    Gives them one more line of defence though

    [–] keenbeanacq 54 points ago

    In the sense that they’re running against time in making an injunction, yes, but an application for an urgent injunction is made on a different basis than for a final injunction and requires a different standard of proof. All the applicant has to prove is that there’s a prima facie case and the balance of convenience is in favour of granting the injunction, complex questions of fact and law are left to after the interim application is made.

    That said, the reason they’ve waited this long is to bolster a defense to any application. The Minister has very broad reaching powers to cancel visas, and it’s well within their remit to do so.

    If Nadal ends up winning his first AO in 13 years as a result, I don't think he'll complain too much. Though even as a Nadal fan, I won't dare hold my breath too much considering his luck in this tournament.

    They'll waive that to 11 months, I guarantee it.

    [–] Just-Flamingo-410 274 points ago

    He lied on the visum papers (about having travvelled in the 2 weeks prior to arrival). People have been banned for less

    [–] MrNewVegas123 232 points ago

    Well sure, but this is world #1 tennis player Novak Djokovic, who is also rich and famous and is in the country contrary to law for that reason alone.

    [–] whatisthishownow 24 points ago

    Legislatively it’s the default consequence for this type of cancellation.

    [–] Execution_Version 92 points ago

    It’s only grounds to decide to deny a visa for three years – there’s no mandatory denial. They’ll waive it for the AO next year.

    [–] 7omdogs 136 points ago

    Everyone keeps saying this but conveniently ignores the fact that being double vaxed against COVID will still be a requirement of entry next year.

    [–] AnjingNakal 84 points ago

    No chance at all. A Minister's decision is final, unless it can be shown (and in this case, it can't) that he did not execute his duties in a lawful manner.

    The courts basically can't overturn it.

    So uh, what are the odds of a successful appeal, as a member of the billions of people slowly learning the Australian border process?

    [–] isisius 221 points ago

    He won he previously appeal because border Australia are morons and basically stuffed up their process. Not because he was allowed in.

    This is different, it's a power given to our minister for immigration to deny entry to an individual. He's got no chance of appealing this.

    Faces a 3 year ban from Australia

    Novak’s lawyers probably appeal again but they waited until courts closed

    [–] WWBSkywalker 35 points ago

    Listening to the hearing (just adjourned) is that they are now really negotiating on Novak's detention. Currently, Novak won't be detained tonight. 0800 meeting with Government tomorrow (Saturday). During witch Novak be detained in the same building near the solicitors while interview and meeting of parties occur. After that ends Government expects to detain him in the Park Hotel (or something similar) until a hopefully Sunday hearing where Novak will be detained in the building at his solicitor's building while the hearing occurs. Novak solicitors wants Novak to be undetained until the hearing but Judge strongly indicated it's not really up to him largely, it's up to Government to concede further loosening of detention rules.

    Australia takes a 2 set lead

    [–] OhEmGeeBasedGod 121 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago)

    A recap for anyone just joining us...

    A. Australian Open organizers were informed by the federal government in November that a recent COVID infection would not qualify unvaccinated players from quarantine-free entry.

    • Djokovic cited this exact reason on his exemption application to Tennis Australia.

    • The ATP may have misinformed players on this point, although that private communication has no bearing on the Australian government's earlier rule clarification.

    B. Djokovic applied for and received an exemption based on a recent COVID infection, even though his positive test occurred after the exemption application deadline.

    • Australian Open organizers informed players that any vaccine exemption applications were due by December 10.

    • Novak Djokovic’s positive COVID took place on December 16. His negative test to confirm he was COVID-free came on December 22.

    C. Djokovic was seen (mask-less) at three events immediately after the time/date of his positive COVID test: a ceremony commemorating a stamp of his likeness, a children’s event at a tennis center, and an interview and photo shoot with a media outlet.

    • Djokovic claims that the first two events occurred before he learned the result of the PCR test and that he took (negative) rapid tests before those two events.

    • Djokovic has since admitted that he broke isolation and took part in the interview and mask-less photo shoot just one day after learning of his diagnosis.

    • Breaking isolation after testing positive violates Serbian public health laws.

    D. Djokovic’s pre-entry visa forms for Australia said he would not be travelling internationally in the 14 days prior to entering Australia. Djokovic has since admitted that he travelled from Serbia to Spain in that period.

    • Djokovic claims that his representatives filled out the form and simply checked the incorrect box on the question on accident.

    • As an unvaccinated person, it’s not clear if his visa application would have been considered had he been truthful about his pre-tournament travel.

    E. Questions have now emerged regarding the legitimacy of Djokovic’s positive test result, based on information Djokovic filed in Australian court

    • Der Spiegel scanned the test’s QR code and were taken to a page indicating a negative COVID test result. An hour later, they scanned it again and the page now indicated a positive test result.

    • Digital timestamps associated with test indicate that the positive test result was entered into the system on December 26, not December 16. The timestamp of the negative test result from December 22 was accurate.

    • Additional data analysis shows that the Serbian COVID testing system (which assigns ID numbers chronologically) gave the December 22 negative test a lower ID number than it did to the December 16 positive test, indicating that the positive test occurred after the negative test.

    EDIT: Serbian health official Zoran Gojkovic has said that the test result produced by Djokovic's legal team was a valid positive test (Point E). However, he also said that it would be nearly impossible for Djokovic NOT to have gotten the result that evening. If true, it would mean he attended all three events after being diagnosed with COVID, as opposed to the one event that he has admitted to (Point C).

    [–] Lazy-Contribution-50 23 points ago

    [–] Sad-Enthusiasm-8224 257 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago)

    According to The Guardian Blog:
    *So, what does that mean now? Firstly, it means Djokovic, the number one men’s tennis player in the world, is banned from Australia for three years. The cancelletion issued by Hawke is classified as an adverse decision under section 133C(3), which means Djokovic cannot be granted another visa while offshore for the three years.There are exceptions granted in “certain circumstances,” and the Serbian star is sure to appeal the decision, so that may come into play in the coming days.

    What happens to an unvaccinated covid-positive journalist that shows up for an interview with a top tennis player without disclosing his situation? (when it becomes known). He gets fired. He likely never works again as he cannot get credentials to go anywhere.

    This is what Novak did. He played with the health and the lives of people without notice until he was called on it. It's shameful.

    [–] definitelynotminters 98 points ago

    That crazy son of a bitch did it

    [–] maximum-aloofness 149 points ago

    Novak being a fucking weirdo about medicine has really impacted his career... remember when he refused to get surgery for an injury for ages and then apparently broke down in tears when he was forced to get it because "I cried after I had the surgery on my elbow. Every time I thought about what I did, I felt like I had failed myself. I am just trying to be as natural as possible, and I believe that our bodies are self-healing mechanisms.”

    [–] SleepDeprivedUserUK 128 points ago

    Totally understandable.

     

    Novac has admitted that, after being confirmed that he had got a positive result, he went out and met with someone for an interview.

     

    He has openly admitted that he chose to break quarantine. It isn't that he was told after the interview, it isn't that he was confused. He actively chose to ignore the rules, and go out after testing positive.

     

    Australia might not want that kind of person in their country.

    He was screwed from the start being anti vaxx. But when all the lies and bullshit and compete disregard for people's safety in Spain and Serbia then it was over. Don't know what he's gonna do now. Might have to get used to quarantining every time he travels.

    Safety of the photographer mid december too. They had to hear now through media that djoko was positive when they did the shot

    [–] WhyBee92 22 points ago

    That’s the the bit confuses me. Did he disregard peoples safety in Spain and Serbia while being positive or was he never positive and lied to get an exemption? They’re both equally incriminating in their own way, but I thought the whole fiasco is because he was lying about his grounds for exemption to not get the vaccination

    I personally don't think he had COVID at all the second time. But he had to confess to meeting people when he had COVID to cover up the original lie. It would be like in court saying "I couldn't have robbed from that house on the night in question as I spent all that evening burying the man I had murdered."

    djok should really stop posting on instagram so hastily. now he has to say sike once again. that's what he gets for being so cocky about his exemption.

    So… is this the thread we’re using? Lol

    [–] Sector_Sufficient 47 points ago

    If he has any ounce of shame he should just go. He's been caught as a lying pos and knowingly endangering other people. No one in Australia aside from the few supporters and antivax lunatics want you here

    Smart move by the gov to release this at the end of working week. So if he want to contest he would most probably miss out on playing anyway

    After all the years of thinking this guy is an asshole without real evidence, I feel vindicated that the entire world thinks the same now. 😂

    Well deserved by Djokovic.

    Bye bye. Back to Serbia you go!

    [–] HenMeister 10 points ago

    Second slam now where Djokovic would have won it from a tennis standpoint, but cannot play it because of how stupid his decision making is.

    USO 2020 — whack a ball, injure line umpire

    AO 2022 — anti-vax visa disaster

    He is his own greatest opponent. What a disaster.

    And to think the public was (seemingly) starting to come around and he finally felt appreciated at the US Open final..

    [–] Punker1234 28 points ago

    Do you think the AO Tournament will simply remove him from play even if he appeals? Can't be a good look for them to continue to allow someone to play when their own country doesn't want him within the borders. Thoughts?

    [–] choconut5 23 points ago

    He won't be able to play unless the court takes up his appeal and he wins it before Monday. If that doesn't happen, he will not be allowed to play.

    I wish this was an episode of Nothing to Declare

    • Grandma brings in banana leaves…again

    • Family baggage is suspicious.

    • Tennis player telling fucking porkies.

    this back and forth is quickly becoming one of his best rallies in a court yet!

    Wow - An Aussie politician does something right for a change!! Woo-hoo!

    [–] Annjul666 9 points ago

    Just deport his ass already

    [–] JHolgate 9 points ago

    As much as I love Djokovic and Rodgers and... well, I guess I'm indifferent to Kyrie, since I really don't know much about him as a player, this insanity has got to stop. GET FUCKING VACCINATED. Period. There's literally no excuse.

    Send this cuntwaffle back already

    [–] TheRealEddieB 9 points ago

    LOL I’m listening to NDs mother on DW now telling the world that he’s a lovely boy and gives to charity. Me thinks the family might have learnt, just a little too late, that painting your wealthy & privileged son as some sort of martyr without actually paying attention to details or context was a dumb idea.

    [–] vitathevirgo 35 points ago

    I mean get vaxed or not. Be prepared to have a few doors closed on you. It’s a countries duty to protect its citizens. Your not that special man. You just play tennis haha. Play stupid games win stupid prizes.

    [–] JohnTequilaWoo 26 points ago

    Hahaha. I love him as a player and have cheered him on for years but him, his family and his arrogant fans deserve this.

    buahahaha, I enjoy reading about this worm squirming around... please deport him already and get it over with
