Australia Cancels Visa of Unvaccinated Tennis Star Novak Djokovic for the Second Time

Michael Haynes : Jan 14, 2022  LifeSiteNews.com

"So basically #NovakDjokovic is being prevented from plying his trade because he doesn't wish to get vaccinated against a virus with an IFR similar to flu & when we know the vaccines don't prevent transmission, illness or even death. The Oz authorities are well out of order." -Neil Clark, journalist-tweet

[LifeSiteNews.com] Australia has once more canceled Novak Djokovic's visa, meaning that the tennis star will now be ordered to leave the country only days before attempting to defend his title at the Australian Open. (Screengrab image)

January 14, Australia's immigration minister Alex Hawke overruled a Monday court decision which had ordered Djokovic to be released from isolation and granted him permission to stay in the country.

Exercising a personal power, Hawke canceled Djokovic's visa saying that it was "in the public interest to do so."

Hawke's statement reads:

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.

In making this decision, I carefully considered information provided to me by the Department of Home Affairs, the Australian Border Force and Mr Djokovic.

The Morrison Government is firmly committed to protecting Australia's borders, particularly in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.

I thank the officers of the Department of Home Affairs and the Australian Border Force who work every day to serve Australia's interests in increasingly challenging operational environments.

Djokovic has previously voiced his opposition to the COVID-19 vaccination and mandates, including travel mandates. He revealed his inclination not to take the jab back in April as part of a Facebook Live video with fellow Serbian athletes, saying, "Personally I am opposed to vaccination and I wouldn't want to be forced by someone to take a vaccine in order to be able to travel."

He is appealing the latest visa cancelation in court, with lawyers currently arguing to keep the tennis star in the country and able to play in the tournament which starts Monday. 

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison defended Hawke's move, which comes four days after the Federal Court Circuit ruled that Djokovic could stay in the country... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
