It's over and Djokovic floored ScoMo.

ScoMo had his lawyer announce that ScoMo will look into his bag of dirty tricks to see if he can find another pretense to run Djokovic out of Australia by the executive powers of the Minister for Immigration.

"Alex Hawke, "will consider whether to exercise a personal power of cancelation." That would be one of the dirtiest tricks that could be used for this backfired political stunt to ban Djokovic for 3 years. The losers will be the tennis world and Australia will be pilloried by the world.

This is a huge embarrassment for the government and the Liberal Party which will see its poll number fall even further.

Novak Djokovic wins Australian visa appeal

Novak Djokovic's Australian visa cancellation was overturned Monday by a judge on the country's federal circuit court, who ordered the Serbian tennis star's release from immigration detention.

Why it matters: The ruling enables the men's tennis world No. 1 to stay in the country and defend his Australian Open title, after he was last week denied entry to the country by border officials who canceled his visa over his COVID-19 vaccination status.

Djokovic is seeking to achieve a record 21st Grand Slam win when the tournament begins on Jan. 17.
Yes, but: He could still face deportation if Australia's immigration minister decides to cancel the 34-year-old's visa for a second time.

Christopher Tan, a lawyer for the Australian government, told the court in Melbourne following Judge Anthony Kelly's ruling that the minister, Alex Hawke, "will consider whether to exercise a personal power of cancelation."

Driving the news: In his ruling, which was broadcast online by the court, Kelly read out a minute agreed to by Djokovic and the Australian government that the tennis player be released from detention within 30 minutes of the order.

Kelly said the decision to cancel Djokovic's visa was "unreasonable" because the player had been told at 5:20a.m. last Thursday that he had until 8:30a.m. to respond to officials.
The government must pay the costs of Djokovic, whom Kelly had earlier permitted to leave the Melbourne hotel detention facility in which he had been placed in order to attend his hearing.
The judge also ordered the return of Djokovic's passport and personal belongings.
What they're saying: Kelly said at Monday's hearing that he was "somewhat agitated" over Djokovic's treatment by border officials, adding: "What more could this man have done?"

Flashback: Border officials said when they canceled Djokovic's visa last week that he failed to provide "appropriate evidence" for his medical exemption from Australia's COVID-19 vaccine requirement.

Lawyers for Djokovic, argued that the tennis star could play in the Australian Open because he had tested positive for the virus in December and had received the exemption.
Of note: Djokovic has said previously that he's opposed to travel vaccination orders, but he'd never publicly revealed whether he'd been inoculated against COVID-19.

But a transcript of his interview with Australian Border Force officials released by the court on Monday reveals that Djokovic told them he's "not vaccinated" and that he had twice tested positive for the coronavirus — once in June 2020 and again last December.
What to watch: If Hawke decides to cancel Djokovic's visa again, the player could the decision. But the minister's powers are "extremely broad and discretionary," making such a challenge difficult to achieve, Melbourne's The Age notes.

Djokovic would be prohibited from re-entering Australia for three years if Hawke uses these powers.

It is evident that the Australian Border Gestapo was acting under political instructions as they attempted to bully a tired, jet-lagged, Djokovic at 5:30 in the morning into leaving the country and denying him time to seek legal advice.

There will be a huge outcry if the Minister for Immigration uses his executive powers to ban Djokovic.

As Djokovic's brother has said Djokovic's victory is for the world not just himself personally.

The ATP should now seek compensation and apologies for those that were deported on the same grounds.

Why was Djokovic’s visa cancellation overturned by a court? It was all a matter of time
The main basis that Judge Anthony Kelly overturned the federal government’s decision to cancel Novak Djokovic’s visa was the tennis champion wasn’t given enough time to respond to the notice of cancellation.

Judge Kelly said the visa cancellation was unreasonable because:

Djokovic was told at 5.20am last Thursday morning that he could have until 8.30am to provide comments in response to the notice of intention to consider cancellation under section 116 of the Migration Act.
Djokovic’s comments were then sought at 6.14am instead and the Border Force official made the decision at 7.42am. “The applicant was thus denied until 8.30am to make some comments,” Judge Kelly said.
If Djokovic had until 8.30am, Judge Kelly said he could have consulted others and made submissions about why his visa should not be cancelled.
It is worth noting here that Judge Kelly did not make a ruling, rather he issued orders (agreed to by both Djokovic and the federal government) after the Minister for Home Affairs conceded the case.

‘Great defeat for Australian authorities’, Novak’s brother says
By Staff reporters
Djordje Djokovic, Novak Djokovic’s youngest brother, has spoken to Serbian TV Prva.

“Sleepless nights for the whole family. We are going through very difficult moments and Novak has shown how persistent he is, how much he believes in his ideals, that he is a great man.

He fought the fight not just for himself but for the whole world. On the other hand, we have the system in Australia which has decided in favour of all the facts and there was no reason for another decision, and now we are getting information that clearly the Home Affairs Minister is above the court

“Definitely this is politics, this has all been politics. We are active on all social media. The latest information is they want to incarcerate him. At the moment we are consulting lawyers and PR people.

“Novak is with his lawyers in rooms where the hearing was held, and he is currently considering all options. This was a great defeat for Australian authorities, and they are taking this badly.”

There is still media chatter about the Australian Border Farce, ScoMo and Hawke looking for ways to cancel Djokovic.

They are taking cancel culture to the ultimate level by canceling individuals on a political stunt.

ScoMo and the Australian Border Farce missed their opportunity while Djokovic was in captivity. Now they are too scared to act over the errors in Djokovic's documents.

Errors that are of no consequence. The Australian Border Farce did not examine Djokovic's documents in regard to prior travel because the issue is trivial when the ABF holds the traveler's passport and can open the passport and see prior entry stamps for other countries.

The prior travel issue is just another means of harassing and terrorizing Djokovic.

not always possible, especially in EU countries. You can cross borders without even seeing an official
They still have immigration police at international airports who view documents and people still have to complete and submit forms.

A person who flies as frequently as Djokovic may not always remember where he has been, especially if he flies in chartered aircraft and has a manager who completes all the documents.

It is time for all of the Australian Border Farce thugs involved to be fired for making such a screwup of the Djokovic case.

Where was your flight from? I have been to Oslo and that is not my experience. They examined my passport and I had to fill in an entry application on the aircraft. My flight was from the USA.

In 1977 I was in the UK and I went on a trip to Italy during the Red Guard terrorist era. The Immigration officials were armed soldiers who examined my passport and pointed to the expiry date and asked me a question which I did not understand. I told him that is the expiry date in English and snatched my passport from him and walked through. I didn't have a visa and probably should have had one.

The EU recorded your entry to the EU in Milan. They were uninterested in your travel within the EU.
And Djokovic travels extensively throughout the EU all the time so he may not have had a stamp on his passport when he entered Spain, like you claimed when you said 'can open the passport and see prior entry stamps for other countries'.

the prime minister wouldn't have gotten involved
The prime minister and a bunch of other ministers would not have gotten involved.

The whole thing is political and they are dredging through Djokovic's whole life looking for dirt.

There are plenty of people from all levels and aspects of society and the economy willing to kick Djokovic in the head.

The government is evidently running a negative propaganda campaign against Djokovic.

If Djokovic wins the AO they will definitely arrest him out of spite.

People right across this country have been expected to follow some pretty strict rules over the last 2 years…

We’ve had family members not able to farewell a dying parent….because they followed the rules….

We’ve had new mothers not able to visit their babies in NICU…because they followed the rules…

We’ve had small businesses risk going broke…because they followed the rules….

Why should yet another spoilt-brat, entitled wanker be permitted to write his own rules, simply because he’s very good at chasing furry balls with a fly swat…?

Australia is governed by "spoilt-brat, entitled wankers". ScoMo and his mate Barnaby Joyce are leading examples.
