54

u/keenbeanacq 8d ago

In the sense that they’re running against time in making an injunction, yes, but an application for an urgent injunction is made on a different basis than for a final injunction and requires a different standard of proof. All the applicant has to prove is that there’s a prima facie case and the balance of convenience is in favour of granting the injunction, complex questions of fact and law are left to after the interim application is made.

That said, the reason they’ve waited this long is to bolster a defense to any application. The Minister has very broad reaching powers to cancel visas, and it’s well within their remit to do so.

Listening to the hearing (just adjourned) is that they are now really negotiating on Novak's detention. Currently, Novak won't be detained tonight. 0800 meeting with Government tomorrow (Saturday). During witch Novak be detained in the same building near the solicitors while interview and meeting of parties occur. After that ends Government expects to detain him in the Park Hotel (or something similar) until a hopefully Sunday hearing where Novak will be detained in the building at his solicitor's building while the hearing occurs. Novak solicitors wants Novak to be undetained until the hearing but Judge strongly indicated it's not really up to him largely, it's up to Government to concede further loosening of detention rules.

A recap for anyone just joining us...

A. Australian Open organizers were informed by the federal government in November that a recent COVID infection would not qualify unvaccinated players from quarantine-free entry.

  • Djokovic cited this exact reason on his exemption application to Tennis Australia.

  • The ATP may have misinformed players on this point, although that private communication has no bearing on the Australian government's earlier rule clarification.

B. Djokovic applied for and received an exemption based on a recent COVID infection, even though his positive test occurred after the exemption application deadline.

  • Australian Open organizers informed players that any vaccine exemption applications were due by December 10.

  • Novak Djokovic’s positive COVID took place on December 16. His negative test to confirm he was COVID-free came on December 22.

C. Djokovic was seen (mask-less) at three events immediately after the time/date of his positive COVID test: a ceremony commemorating a stamp of his likeness, a children’s event at a tennis center, and an interview and photo shoot with a media outlet.

  • Djokovic claims that the first two events occurred before he learned the result of the PCR test and that he took (negative) rapid tests before those two events.

  • Djokovic has since admitted that he broke isolation and took part in the interview and mask-less photo shoot just one day after learning of his diagnosis.

  • Breaking isolation after testing positive violates Serbian public health laws.

D. Djokovic’s pre-entry visa forms for Australia said he would not be travelling internationally in the 14 days prior to entering Australia. Djokovic has since admitted that he travelled from Serbia to Spain in that period.

  • Djokovic claims that his representatives filled out the form and simply checked the incorrect box on the question on accident.

  • As an unvaccinated person, it’s not clear if his visa application would have been considered had he been truthful about his pre-tournament travel.

E. Questions have now emerged regarding the legitimacy of Djokovic’s positive test result, based on information Djokovic filed in Australian court

  • Der Spiegel scanned the test’s QR code and were taken to a page indicating a negative COVID test result. An hour later, they scanned it again and the page now indicated a positive test result.

  • Digital timestamps associated with test indicate that the positive test result was entered into the system on December 26, not December 16. The timestamp of the negative test result from December 22 was accurate.

  • Additional data analysis shows that the Serbian COVID testing system (which assigns ID numbers chronologically) gave the December 22 negative test a lower ID number than it did to the December 16 positive test, indicating that the positive test occurred after the negative test.

EDIT: Serbian health official Zoran Gojkovic has said that the test result produced by Djokovic's legal team was a valid positive test (Point E). However, he also said that it would be nearly impossible for Djokovic NOT to have gotten the result that evening. If true, it would mean he attended all three events after being diagnosed with COVID, as opposed to the one event that he has admitted to (Point C).

According to The Guardian Blog:
*So, what does that mean now? Firstly, it means Djokovic, the number one men’s tennis player in the world, is banned from Australia for three years. The cancelletion issued by Hawke is classified as an adverse decision under section 133C(3), which means Djokovic cannot be granted another visa while offshore for the three years.There are exceptions granted in “certain circumstances,” and the Serbian star is sure to appeal the decision, so that may come into play in the coming days.

Novak being a fucking weirdo about medicine has really impacted his career... remember when he refused to get surgery for an injury for ages and then apparently broke down in tears when he was forced to get it because "I cried after I had the surgery on my elbow.

Totally understandable.

 

Novac has admitted that, after being confirmed that he had got a positive result, he went out and met with someone for an interview.

 

He has openly admitted that he chose to break quarantine. It isn't that he was told after the interview, it isn't that he was confused. He actively chose to ignore the rules, and go out after testing positive.

 

Australia might not want that kind of person in their country.

He lied

u/Federer2020hype Team Delpo, Chung, Dimitrov 8d ago

He was screwed from the start being anti vaxx. But when all the lies and bullshit and compete disregard for people's safety in Spain and Serbia then it was over. Don't know what he's gonna do now. Might have to get used to quarantining every time he travels.

Safety of the photographer mid december too. They had to hear now through media that djoko was positive when they did the shot

u/WhyBee92 8d ago

That’s the the bit confuses me. Did he disregard peoples safety in Spain and Serbia while being positive or was he never positive and lied to get an exemption? They’re both equally incriminating in their own way, but I thought the whole fiasco is because he was lying about his grounds for exemption to not get the vaccination

u/JohnTequilaWoo 8d ago

I personally don't think he had COVID at all the second time. But he had to confess to meeting people when he had COVID to cover up the original lie. It would be like in court saying "I couldn't have robbed from that house on the night in question as I spent all that evening burying the man I had murdered."

u/Sector_Sufficient 8d ago

If he has any ounce of shame he should just go. He's been caught as a lying pos and knowingly endangering other people. No one in Australia aside from the few supporters and antivax lunatics want you here

Smart move by the gov to release this at the end of working week. So if he want to contest he would most probably miss out on playing anyway

Second slam now where Djokovic would have won it from a tennis standpoint, but cannot play it because of how stupid his decision making is.

USO 2020 — whack a ball, injure line umpire

AO 2022 — anti-vax visa disaster

He is his own greatest opponent. What a disaster.

u/Punker1234 8d ago

Do you think the AO Tournament will simply remove him from play even if he appeals? Can't be a good look for them to continue to allow someone to play when their own country doesn't want him within the borders. Thoughts?

u/choconut5 8d ago

He won't be able to play unless the court takes up his appeal and he wins it before Monday. If that doesn't happen, he will not be allowed to play.

LOL I’m listening to NDs mother on DW now telling the world that he’s a lovely boy and gives to charity. Me thinks the family might have learnt, just a little too late, that painting your wealthy & privileged son as some sort of martyr without actually paying attention to details or context was a dumb idea.
