Novak Djokovic's visa gets cancelled by Immigration Minister Hawke
Alex Hawke, the Australian Minister for Immigration, has cancelled Novak Djokovic's Australian visa "on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so.
The decision came after the Minister took several days to go over the decision to do so. Djokovic and his legal team will appeal the decision and the Serbian will once again go to court. As it stands now, this is effectively a re-deportation order for the unvaccinated nine-time Australian Open champion.
The statemenet released by the Minister said:
"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 other grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interests to do so."
