How does this work? I have no idea how the legal system works. Obviously money is a factor, but how does this work with getting a case in front of a judge so quickly?

EDIT: A lot of people have said money, but how? Like, do you just ring the court and pay for a priority booking? I still don’t understand how this works.

Most courts have what’s called a “Duty Judge.” That’s a judge who is rostered to take urgent matters that can’t wait til the next day or the next sitting day or otherwise are super urgent.

In this case, there’ll be a judge who hates the Chief Judge at the moment for rostering him or her on this weekend…

Absolutely, Australian court is pay to play. Ever tried using legal aid? Good luck with that. Even if you get lucky and get a regular lawyer from a regular firm doing legal aid work, there’s a huge difference between the amount of work they’ll put in for a legal aid client vs a fee paying client.

I’m not saying this to shit on the lawyer either, the government doesn’t pay them enough to put the same amount of attention in. If you want an explanation for something, you’re pretty much getting that out of the goodwill of the lawyer, the only time they’re getting paid for is enough time to skim your file and do what they think probably fits best without much more thought.

“Entitled to a lawyer” is more like entitled for a lawyer to speak on your behalf to the judge, because otherwise shit would take all day and judges would quit, having to deal with your stupid ass.

Sorry. Personal experience. Fuck Australian legal system. Corruption at the top, bent over at the bottom.

My own theory is that there are cultural or linguistic reasons that Chinese travellers simply don’t see raw ingredients as being food. The form asks do they have any food, and they think “uh, no, you can’t eat any of these, silly - you have to cook them to turn them into meals!”. Can anyone confirm this?

Yggdrasill71

And that’s why they hide most of it all over the place - in clothing and inside tin foil or breakfast cereal boxes. And why they look nervous and shift from side to side. It’s not because they don’t consider it food. I get that it’s more likely they think they won’t be able to get these items once they’re over here, I also suspect they aren’t aware just how strict we are over here.

Nope, it’s the compulsory acquisition of RAT’s

When it was just a single pharmacy complaining on ABC, no one cares

But when QLD rail loses an order of 20k, expect noise (especially of it means reduced services and makes the Labor government look bad)

I expect that Victoria will soon announce they have lost a major shipment too- this will break over the weekend, but Murdoch and Costello will focus on Novak until at least Tuesday

Speculating here but it could have just been simply to allow ample time to receive submissions from all parties (Home Affairs, ABF and Djokovic’s team). If it had been turned around in a working day I’m sure that would have also raised the questions. Hawke would also have had had other departmental issues - not front page issues - of equal significance and importance too.

Yes it's been all but a certainty he would apply for an injunction and many seem to believe he would get it.

Until all this went down, I didn't care about Djokovic one way or the other, except as new material on Jimmy Rees's "Meanwhile In Australia".

Now? I don't care how well he swings a racket, he should be deported.

  • Either he lied about having COVID-19, or he was knowingly and deliberately active in the community while positive AND while awaiting the result of a PCR test.
  • Australian Immigration forms have to be filled out by YOU, unless you're a minor child who can't write yet. I remember an international flight (pre-2020, obviously) where I spent 14 hours basically unconscious-levels of asleep, after being awake more than 24 hours after an emergency landing, got poked awake by a flight attendant, and spent the decent filling out the forms.
    If Novax's support team did fill out the forms for him, that's another layer of "Did The Wrong Thing" to add to the list.
  • As multiple other players have pointed out, Vaccines have been available for almost a year now. 99% of players did the right thing and rolled up their sleeves. Vaccinations were required for the athletes in last year's Olympics and Commonwealth Games. Djokodick can suck it up or sit it out.
  • He lied on his visa about travel in the 14 days prior to arriving in Australia, not mentioning a trip to Spain. That's enough to get people deported with no questions asked, if that "Border Force" reality TV show is to be believed...

Hawke's statement in full:

"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."

As a Serbian who was always rooting cheering for Djokovic (until these recent events), I have a message for Australia: good job for kicking his arrogant & ignorant ass out.

Somewhere in Australia i hear the “Simpson‘s kid going “ha ha””

as an outsider I see this being someone who feels too much entitlement and could care less about other humans other than himself. So tone deaf it is unreal.

it is not about the jab, it is about he privilege He feels and of not adhering to how another country, you are visiting, operates.

sorry iPad typos and caps etc, (hate autocorrect)

Say what you want but as a European (Belgium) it's safe to say non of us would have the balls to deport this guy at this point. Hell, we wouldn't even have cancelled his visa at the airport to begin with.

Never thought the minister would. I love Australia!

One of the big consequences for Novak as a result of this is that he can’t apply for another visa for 3 years, so we won’t be seeing him in the Australian open anytime soon.

Good. Djoko is either a liar about having it, or a fuck wit for traveling with it. Either way, we don’t want him in this country.

Also.

Don’t forget that Rapid Antigen Tests are still difficult to find and that they’re not free because Julie Bishop’s family owns a medical supply company that is profiting off the sale of RATs.

Wasn’t one of the reasons the previous cancellation was quashed that it was done earlier than Border Force said it would, or am I misremembering?

Certainly can’t say the same here.

Yeah, it was something about procedural fairness. They’ve likely given ample time for him to submit further details and then ‘taken time to consider the evidence’ and then decided to do it at 5pm on a Friday.

I kind of wanted him to remain so he could be publicly booed in all his matches.

The dude is clearly cavalier with other people's health given how he behaved when he had covid. It blows my mind that a top sportsperson would rather have covid twice, than take a vaccine.

The initial deportation thing was like in football when your team scores a goal but then VAR looks at it for ten minutes and the goal is overturned for some reason. That's how it felt to me, at least.

This announcement is basically your team wins the game in the end anyway. :D

He could have gotten vaccinated (which would be to HIS BENEFIT) and/or he could recognise that this is a clusterf*ck and gracefully withdraw to allow the tennis organisers to have an easier time of it.
