Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has said the “harassment” of world number one men’s tennis player Novak Djokovic must end as the player is left in limbo by the cancellation of his Australian Open visa days.
“In accordance with all standards of international law, Serbia will fight for Novak, truth and justice. Novak is strong, as we all know. – Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic
President Aleksandar Vučić wrote on Instagram that he spoke to Djokovic and pledged to use all diplomatic channels available to Serbia to help the player.
“I told our Novak that all of Serbia was with him,” Vučić wrote.
“Our bodies are doing everything to end the harassment of the best tennis player in the world, immediately.
Djokovic was confined for several hours overnight at a Melbourne airport after arriving at around 11:20 p.m. Wednesday after Australian border forces raised concerns over his entry visa.
That visa was later revoked, with Health Minister Greg Hunt saying the federal government had conducted a review of the COVID-19 vaccine exemption granted to Djokovic by the Victoria state government.
Djokovic can appeal the decision, “But if a visa is canceled, someone will have to leave the country,” Hunt told the Seven Network.
As of December 15, fully immunized eligible visa holders can arrive in Australia without the need to apply for a travel exemption and can travel to eligible states and territories without having to self-quarantine.
But if a person is not vaccinated, they must provide proof that they cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons or be turned away.
