Australia detains Novak Djokovic pending the trial that will decide if he will finally be deported

Novak Djokovic has been arrested again in Australia after attending an interview with Immigration agents, as reported by CNN. The number one in the world will be able to be with his lawyers to prepare the final hearing that will take place this Sunday from 11:00 p.m. Spanish (9:00 a.m., Australian time). It will be there where it is officially decided whether or not to continue in Australia.

This arrest comes after Alex Hawke, Australian Immigration Minister, decided to finally exercise this Friday the authority granted by his position and canceled Novak Djokovic’s visa again.

The worst possible outcome for the Serbian would be close to being produced if everything follows the current line. The number one in the world could be definitively removed from the Australian Open and could not defend his title.

Little by little more and more tennis players are in favor or against the Serbian tennis player, Pablo Carreño affirms that “the rules are the rules”, a line that Tsitsipas supports, that Andy Murray clarifies and that, however, differs from number one Ukrainian, Ilya Marchenko in this controversial case.

The “humiliation” denounced by the Serbian Prime Minister

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic today accused the Australian authorities of “mistreating and humiliating” tennis player Novak Djokovic, who had his visa for that country revoked for the second time, and reiterated Serbia’s support for him.

The final decision of the Australian Federal Court on whether Djokovic (number one in the ATP) will be deported, will be known on Sunday, one day before the start of the Australian Open, a Grand Slam in which he intends to participate and which he won nine times. .

“Why do you mistreat him and why do you humiliate him, not only him but also his family and an entire free and proud nation?” Vucic declared on his Instagram.

Vucic asked if these measures are taken to “flatter public opinion” and win points before the elections that are expected in Australia this year, and denounced that attacks and pressure on the athletes have had a great echo for “unknown” reasons.

“I go back to the moral issue. If you wanted to ban Novak from the 10th trophy in Melbourne, why didn’t you immediately turn him down and tell him he couldn’t get a visa?” he said.

Commenting on the new withdrawal of Djokovic’s visa, supported by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, the Serbian president said he is amazed that the organs of an executive power amend judicial decisions.

“Not infrequently they preach to us with the rule of law, and can you imagine what would happen if in Serbia some minister could annul judges’ decisions?” Vucic said. Djokovic’s visa was canceled today after a Melbourne court annulled the first revocation on the 10th, after an appeal from the tennis player’s lawyers.

Djokovic traveled to Australia on a medical exemption that allowed him to play in the Grand Slam. Vucic declared that Serbia will fight for Djokovic and that “the mistreatment” experienced by the tennis player will not change his country’s respect for the people of Australia or for “the greatest tennis player of all time, who will always be in our hearts.” “Novak, we are with you,” Vucic concluded.

The tennis player’s father, Srdjan Djokovic, uploaded a photo of his son to social networks next to that of a wolf, and with the message “Strength, son!”.

Djokovic, whose visa was canceled for the first time by Australia on the 6th, was isolated until January 10 in a hotel for asylum seekers, which his family described as “terrible” and “inhumane”.
