Well it seems after our PM's chat with the Serbian PM, Ana Brnabic, that she is a bit unsure re Novax's public appearances post Covid diagnosis and reportedly has said 

"Djokovic would have "clearly violated the rules" in place in Serbia if the tennis star had known his test result before he participated in the event, but she added that more information about the incident was needed.

"I don't know when he received the test result, when he read it," Ms Brnabić said.

When asked what would happen if Djokovic was found to have breached quarantine rules, she said the Serbian government would "deal with it".

"We will have an insight into that information because I think that information is part of the investigation that is currently led by the immigration ministry of Australia," she said."

So now even the Serbian PM has questions of Novax. One would think she has talked to him privately and put him on notice as she has also reportedly said that her government will give guarantee that Novax will respect local regulations if he is allowed to stay in the country.

its one thing doing the immigration bureaucracy dance with a high powered legal team, political interference etc but  if you bullshit the border guards and tell straight up lies then all bets are off. 

The so called "border guards" are the idiots that caused this whole mess. If they'd done their job properly in the first place Djokovic would be somewhere other than Australia. They obviously decided to treat him like hapless boat person instead of someone with access to a good support network and high–powered legal team.

Because they were in such a hurry and fucked up the process, he's now got what he wants and is openly flaunting Covid visa requirements. It's now a political issue so likely he'll stay unless some serious breach of his supporting documentation is found.

I would expect that they were responding to pressure from the top (Scomo) otherwise they would have let him in, just like they did with all of the other players with exemption paperwork. 

If Novax had not posted on social media that he had an exemption and the subsequent media hissyfit, Novax would have slipped in under the radar and then the hissyfit and politics would have started.

No he wouldn't DK. The ABF official was totally correct in the determination that Novax did not have a valid exemption.  The problem was, and this was accepted by the Govt Barrister, that Novax was not provided Procedural Fairness, especially at 0400 after flying 20 hours from Spain.

More like Djokovic had the means to exercise his right to procedural fairness.

Meanwhile...Novax has made a statement...via 5 Instagram posts. I'm not sure how to embed them here so will eave that for others however they are in the ABC News Novax live blog here 

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2022-01-12/novak-djokovic-decision-live-updates/100751136

Basically re his travel declaration re not travelling anywhere for previous 14 days prior to arrival in Australia he claims it was an error by his agent who filled out the form.  He also addresses the issue of the appearances he made in Belgrade whilst supposedly positive. In that part of his post he said he returned two negative RAT's but the PCR returned a positive, which he did not know about until after the kids tennis event in Belgrade.

He also said his team has provided all of this information, and probably some more, to the Australian Govt. Minister Hawke's office has said that it is unlikely a decision re Novax's visa will be made today.

Me thinks he's going to get away with it. May he receive many boos each time he serves next week.

The Czech player's visa was cancelled because her medical exemption was not valid. She did not contest the decision by ABF and duly left the country.  She did not have a defence of Procedural Fairness because she was not detained at 0100 and questioned for 3 hours and not provided opportunity to speak with Tennis Australia at 0400, let alone 0830 as he requested, before he was detained.  She is also not an arrogant self-entitled cunt like Novax and accepted the decision.

She is a nobody player with limited finances and was not in a position to fight it.

but my question was, why did border force let her into the country and then only after stopping Novax did they reassess her visa.

Novax was stopped because the Government  got cold feet.

Because they realised they'd stuffed up with Novax and went back to check all the other exemptions. She failed the test.  Next thing Sayonara.

Yep. And so the minister has taken his time, ensured he's got his facts straight, given Djokovic and his lawyers plenty of rope to hang themselves, and will likely cancel his visa at the last moment before the draw so even if Djokovic appeals, he'll miss the tournament. So no point in appealing, just go back to Serbia and face the music there for his breaches at home and in Spain.

Meanwhile, social media has done the government's PR job for it.

Nicely done, eventually.

Not so fast. She's threatening to sue the AO for telling her she was fine and to come over. Turns out their advice was wrong. Even if it costs them $50k or so in reparation, that's a drop in the ocean given the costs of staging a grand slam tournament.

With RATS nearly impossible to get, and PCR lines consuming endless hours for sick citizens, Soctty from Marketing has today sought to prolong the distraction that is Novak Djokovic’s visa situation for as long as possible.

Fronting the cameras, the man who wanted to be the Prime Minister more than anything in the world has deflected any questions about accountability by revealing that the Serbian tennis star has just been spotted throwing children out of his quarantine balcony.

“It’s disgraceful behaviour,” explained Scotty a short time ago.

“I express my anger at the behaviour of Novak and I repeat it. I can’t comprehend how he would throw children overboard,” said Morrison, seemingly copying John Howard’s infamous political ploy to the letter.

John Howard famously, and deceitfully claimed that refugees were throwing their children into the ocean to obtain sea rescue from Australia.

The move was lapped up by the Australian media and people, who voted in the previously lagging Howard.

Following on from the children overboard affair, it’s believed Morrison is hoping that he can run the same play back and win the upcoming election.

“We need strong borders, and we need to protect our borders. And I don’t believe people like Novak should be allowed into this country,” said Morrison.

The political grandstanding in the middle of a devastating health crisis with an election around the corner then continued with Morrison maintaining claims that Novak would be turned away.

“Don’t worry about how you are going to get through this period of time, get outraged about the man my staffers have told me people hate”

“Focus on that, until I find the next dead cat to throw on the table.”

He didn't say that. he merely said when asked by a reporter about vaccine mandates in Victoria and Novax that there my be things that are still to play out.

Under Victoria's rules, unvaccinated people may not enter sports events unless they are medically exempt.

You cant accuse him of grandstanding. He's been on leave throughout this debacle.

Morrison doesn't intervene in these visa and deportation things usually.

When asked about the Tamil family, he insisted that it was up to the minister ( Attack dog Dutton) and refused to comment. Of course, the threatened deportation of two little Australians was not a popular move.

Have changed my mind about Novax playing. I think he should and have to deal with the welcome he will get at every opportunity.

And been told to FOAD, the rules were going to be the same as the Victorian Govt applied to their own residents stuck on the NSW side of the border and forced to stay there for no good reason whatsoever.

Fuck giving tennis players any sort of free pass at all. Not vaccinated, not getting past the border. Simple.

Djokovics Lawyer Nic Wood outlined why they appealed.

He thinks Hawke cancelled his Visa because Djokovic would stir up the Anti-Vaxxers in Melbourne and Australia and therefore is a Public Health Theat based on Comments made by Novak in 2020.

I really hope for the sake of the Aussie Govtm that this is not the Reason Hawke cancelled because if it is they are in deep shit.

The big issue here is not Novax, he's just a typical entitled rich antivax cunt. The issue is the corruption of Tennis Australia and the backroom old boy bullshit that fully expected to get him here despite his antivax stance. 

Tennis oz did not read the room, only the bank statement. Vic has been going through a total shit time with covid, omicron is fucking the eastern states as we speak yet somehow they thought getting this asshole into the country was a good idea. The problem is the system, could you or I get a federal hearing on Sunday 48 hours after our visa was declined? How the fucking fuck does that work?
