As I said upthread. It's been done before. refusing visa's to holocaust deniers and women beaters.

This time it's an influential figure that has used his position to undermine public health orders in the midst of a pandemic.

When they seek to refuse ICC representatives or Amnesty , our courts will deal with it as they always have done.

Civil liberties are a two edged sword

Here is what Novak Djokovic said in August 2020 prior to Tennis resuming (Courtesy of an NYTimes Article)

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/20/sports/tennis/djokovic-us-open.html?action=click&module=RelatedLinks&pgtype=Article

Probably one of the Articles for Mr Hawke to come to the conclusion to cancel his Visa.

Djokovic said his own experience with the coronavirus had not altered his views on vaccines. He has said that he would have a difficult decision to make if receiving a coronavirus vaccine became mandatory to compete on the tennis circuit.

“I see that the international media has taken that out of context a little bit, saying that I am completely against vaccines of any kind,” he said. “My issue here with vaccines is if someone is forcing me to put something in my body. That I don’t want. For me that’s unacceptable. I am not against vaccination of any kind, because who am I to speak about vaccines when there are people that have been in the field of medicine and saving lives around the world? I’m sure that there are vaccines that have little side effects that have helped people and helped stop the spread of some infections around the world.”

But Djokovic did express concern about potential issues with a coronavirus vaccine.

“How are we expecting that to solve our problem when this coronavirus is mutating regularly from what I understand?” he said.

If he still holds that view right now there is no chance he will play Tennis ever again.

So what? He can still choose to remain unvaccinated for covid, but he cant  and play tennis in Oz at the same time which was what he attempted to do.

You come across like one of those "Querdenker" loonies, aka the domestic hardcore Anti-Vaxxer group of people.

Do you sympathise or identify with them? If so, get lost and shut the fuck up.

If not, feel free to explain yourself, because I (and obviously others in this thread) have a hard time to see why you seem to feel the urge to promote a selfish, ignorant, lying, tennis playing cunt to some sort of freedom fighter, half way around the planet?!

 

Disclaimer: I live close to Stuttgart, Germany, home of the "Querdenker" movement, and I have really had it with these shitkickers who have just sent the whole region into the next lockdown, again.

I do appreciate your condolences. She passed away over two years ago however some of the family have not been return home to enter Queensland. Had my sister been married to a football player or Keith Urban she would have had no problem.

You see my issue with that Polish POS? Still we got off lightly compared to those that had Parents, brothers, sisters and children that died alone because her compassion only extended to the famous.

And the minute the polls showed the mood on closed borders had swung she threw the doors open knowing full well her actions would cost lives. But I guess it really was Scomo's fault. Everything is.

Your obsession with Meli is worrying.

What about the Polish POS and Jacinda Ardern to name a few more? Presumably Berejiklian isn’t an Armenian POS because she is of the right political persuasion, despite telling everyone to open up and let Covid rip?

FWIW, I don’t regard Gutwein as a German POS because he opened up Tassie Borders.

Well there was a slow build up so by June he could have had lots to regret.

Security Council mission arrived in Srebrenica on 25 April 1993 and reported to the UN the Serbs for perpetrating "a slow-motion process of genocide."

But the actions that led the international Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia to determine genocide occurred took place in July. That finding was upheld by the International Court of Justice. The combination of separation of and murder of the men and boys (Bosnian Commission of Missing Persons list 8,373) and the abuse and forced transfer of 25,000 to 30,000 Bosniak women, children and elderly was deemed genocide.

But your buddy was prescient to be running that early as Serb regret sure was not front and center anytime in 1995

I'm over the lot of them. Don't want to get vaccinated? Fine. Don't. And stay away from those of us who are.

Lismore District Hospital apparently has 16 in ICU. All un-vaccinated. The good news is, real estate is going up there so estate sales should raise a fair chunk of cash for the inheritors.

The French Sports Ministry said on Monday there would be no exemption from a new vaccine pass law approved on Sunday, which requires people to have vaccination certificates to enter public places such as restaurants, cafes and cinemas.

"This will apply to everyone who is a spectator or a professional sportsperson. And this until further notice," the ministry said.

A folk singer from the Czech Republic has died after deliberately catching Covid, her son has told the BBC.

Hana Horka, 57, was unvaccinated and had posted on social media that she was recovering after testing positive, but died two days later.

Her son, Jan Rek, said she got infected on purpose when he and his father had the virus, so she could get a recovery pass to access certain venues.

It doesn't when said person lies on their entry declaration regarding previous movements. 

The mistake was giving him an exemption in the first place.

That's not Tucker Carlson.  That is Glen Greenwald, the very liberal Democrat that broke the Edward Snowden story that showed that the US government was spying on all of its citizens in violation of their 4rth Amendment rights. (a claim that has subsequently has been confirmed in US federal court)

He was also a constitutional law litigator before we turned to journalism full time so perhaps he is a little more attuned to things like "western principles of democracy" than your average reporter.

But nice try to discredit him before listening to what he has to say.  That was a swing and miss.

Glen Greenwald, despite your assertion that he is a "very liberal Democrat," is a regular Fox News guest-stooge who likes to engage in the Fox game of turning logic on its ear. He seems to randomly pick sides on issues of the day. The man has about as much credibility as Michael Avenatti.

The judge’s rationale to release him from detention was based on the opinion that he didn’t have ample time to supply further documents in his defence at the airport and was accompanied with the proviso that his (temporary) visa could be revoked at any time by a higher authority. It was a procedural ruling intended to facilitate further investigation.

As it happened, social media as well as their own subsequent investigations gave the government multiple options to choose from if they wished to exercise their sovereignty by enforcing the laws of the land created by democratically elected representatives.

 In your future studies of democratic principles, look into War Measures, Marshall Law, and if you still have time, the nuance between the spirit of the law and the letter.

 The government had both options, but felt that using the spirit of the law would both further the nation’s challenge at self government during crisis, and virtually guarantee the expulsion of a non citizen without sovereign rights or sufficient requirements to be a guest in said nation, forthwith.

Also make a footnote that this non citizen was FREE to leave this sovereign nation from the second they exercised their sovereignty.

The first court case did not go into the validity of the revocation of the visa. It addressed whether Djokovic was given appropriate opportunity.

The second court case went to the appropriateness of the revocation and found for the government.

Novak's lawyers argued that "He had done absolutely everything. He had engaged with everything that was required of him by Tennis Australia." 
 

I really hate to break this to you, but Tennis Australia does NOT set the border, immigration or health status rules. Not even for self-entitled fuckwit anti-vaxxer tennis stars.

The Federal Government does.

He lied on his paperwork.

And so he's out. Good riddance.

That's not Tucker Carlson.  That is Glen Greenwald, the very liberal Democrat that broke the Edward Snowden story that showed that the US government was spying on all of its citizens in violation of their 4rth Amendment rights. (a claim that has subsequently has been confirmed in US federal court)

He was also a constitutional law litigator before we turned to journalism full time so perhaps he is a little more attuned to things like "western principles of democracy" than your average reporter.

But nice try to discredit him before listening to what he has to say.  That was a swing and miss.

Glenn Greenwald has gone full Nutter much like his Faux News female counterparts Maria Bartiroma and Lara Logan.  It’s a good thing he’s gay because humanity couldn’t survive their spawn.

Yes, that does implicate "western principles democracy."  Based on that reasoning Australia might deny entry to a band that sings songs critical of the government or policies of the government.

 

 

So... What band exactly did Australia deny from entry due to its music???

Was it this band??

Nope. You need to read more closely. 

Novak's lack of time to prepare initially was an issue but the judge did look into the substantive reasoning for the revocation and found the government's reasoning "unreasonable."  Judge Kelly quashed the cancellation and ordered the government to pay legal costs and release Novak.  That is not a merely procedural hearing.  The government does get ordered to pay costs to just allow Novak further time for defense, the government lost that hearing.

The judge stated:

“Here, a professor and an eminently qualified physician have produced and provided to the applicant a medical exemption”

“Further to that, that medical exemption and the basis on which it was given was separately given by a further independent expert specialist panel established by the Victorian state government and that document was in the hands of the delegate.”

Afterward the Minister for Immigration exercised superior authority to cancel Novak visa again.

Well, you're a fucking idiot.
