#1 Tennis Star in the World Is Spending Christmas in Australian Detention
He can leave and be blacklisted for 3 years — after having been told by the Australian side he was clear to arrive
The key piece of information:
Djokovic was granted an exemption after review from two independent health panels set up by Tennis Australia and the Victorian government.
The Australian side (the Victorian government) had communicated to Djokovic that was clear to arrive.
The other key piece of information:
The Australian side had issued exemptions to five other players and granted them entry when they arrived. Of the six only Djokovic was told he was clear to arrive but then detained when he showed up.
Finally, according to his brother:
“Novak could even come back but then he would be blacklisted for 3 years. Novak does not want that, he was treated as a criminal, he is an honest athlete who did not commit any offense.”
You couldn’t make this up. The Australian side told him to come, then revoked his visa mid-flight, and threw him in detention. He is “free to leave” but then he can’t play the Grand Slam there for the next 3 years for the grave crime of…what exactly? Falling for their trap?
“They could have told him not to come. They’re still keeping him in jail. They took all his things, they just left him a cell phone, he has nothing to wear, change or was with. Novak is a prisoner of those bastards, shame on them.”
“Novak did not break any rules, he was in communication with the Australian authorities all the time, every protocol was followed until he came to the border, where harassment began, which can be called a serious diplomatic violation.
He was then taken to an isolation room. where he was interrogated by the border police, Novak spent the first 45 minutes communicating with family and team members, when communication was abruptly cut off because his phone was confiscated for three and a half hours. After that, his phone was returned to him, but he was then taken to another room, which is the airport detention.
After leaving the airport he went through a metal detector, where they took away all his things, wallet, suitcases, only gave him a cell phone. He then went to a migrant hotel, to a dirty room, without any of his belongings. “
He is being held in an asylum-seeker facility where both the window and the door of his room are locked.
“Nobody deserves this, especially not him, who was constantly greeted with laurels. It is scandalous that they keep him in a dirty room, that he has no contact with his family. “
Just spoke to Australia's deputy prime minister Barnaby Joyce about the #Djokovic affair – 'You can't just wander around the world thinking that because you're really rich you're above the law of other nations' – more on @BBCNewshour @bbcworldservice at 14gmt/09est

Mr Djokovic’s visa has been cancelled. Rules are rules, especially when it comes to our borders. No one is above these rules. Our strong border policies have been critical to Australia having one of the lowest death rates in the world from COVID, we are continuing to be vigilant.

What is funny is that the Australian COVID Rouge is framing the scandal as the entitled, privileged Novak seeking special treatment. Hilarious stuff. A working man is being treated as a pariah for not undergoing mRNA treatments and it’s him who wants special rules? Not the would-be demagogues singling him out for his high profile?
Is it normal to issue visas and revoke them in mid-flight? Who is creating special hoops for whom here?
The classlessness of the Australian cult-occupied banana republic is such it was too much even for Serbia’s lesbian, pro-Western, Soros-backed PM:
“We really don’t understand. Novak has a medical exemption, based on that he got a permit to participate in the tournament, he boarded a plane. If you don’t have a visa or all the documents, you can’t even board a plane, especially not for Australia. Other tennis players who had a medical exemption entered the country.”
“Novak was treated differently. He has an exception, he got permission from the tournament organizers, boarded the plane, and was detained for several hours at the airport. He was treated differently from the others and that is what makes us think so.”
Who exactly is seeking special treatment here? The uninjected who don’t care if you inject or not — or the deranged cultists who need everyone to inject the experimental, unnecessary, infection-boosting swill to give comfort to their mental disorder?
