Novak Djokovic looses legal battle to avoid deportation from Australia

16/01/2022 at 3:52 PM

Melbourne, Jan 16: Tennis star Novak Djokovic lost the legal battle to restore his Australian visa on Sunday, a day before the start of Australian Open.

Djokovic lost his final bid to avoid deportation from Australia, ending a 11-day battle over his Covid-19 vaccination status and dashing his dream of a record 21st Grand Slam.

Djokovic challenged the decision of Australian immigration minister Alex Hawke and it was rejected by a three-judge bench of the Federal Court.

Earlier, Hawke cancelled the tennis star’s visa on the basis that his presence in Australia might risk ‘civil unrest’ as he is a ‘talisman of anti-vaccination sentiment’
