Have you never heard of a typo?This is so stupid! CNN did a story on the Novak situation but they got the year wrong. They are using 2020 where it should be 2021. Apparently they don't know that we are in the year 2022.
Novak Djokovic's Australian Open participation has provided a tumultuous backdrop to the tournament. The Serbian world No. 1 was detained in Australia last week over a visa and vaccination dispute, and on Tuesday released a lengthy statement addressing his movements in December 2020.www.cnn.com
You're right - no one proofreads - particularly for online content the mantra is publish as much as possible as quickly as possible.It is not just a typo that occurred once. Did you actually read the article? They are consistently one year behind, throughout the story. These days nobody proofreads, from what I am told. Makes them look incompetent.
Oh let’s not get ahead of ourselves, he’s already won one appeal.Yesssssssssssssssssssssssssss
Goodbye, you lying liar fcuk!
Yeah, that bit sucks.Oh let’s not get ahead of ourselves, he’s already won one appeal.
I wish this wasn’t so political. He’s clearly a liar and I doubt the veracity of his conveniently timed PCR test. But I’m also cynical about this being announced just after it came to light that the government was commandeering rapid antigen test supplies from businesses and state governments and all the criticism that came with that
There's going to be a directions hearing at 8:45 AEDT (meaning it's probably getting underway right as I'm typing this) and then a late-night hearing once the lawyers have put in their submissions if I've understood the reporting right.He's scheduled to play his first game on Sunday, so would he be able to make that? Do the courts operate on the weekend in Australia?
He’s scheduled to play either Monday or Tuesday Australian time, so there are 2-3 days.He's scheduled to play his first game on Sunday, so would he be able to make that? Do the courts operate on the weekend in Australia?
This. I wish he would suck it up, apologize, and leave as graciously as he can. He’s looking like a major a**hole.They revoked his visa. Appeal goes to court.Novak Djokovic is being detained ahead of a court hearing on his case to stay in the country and play at the Australian Open. Follow here for live updates.www.cnn.com
I wish Novak would just accept the rules of the country he is visiting. That is called integrity.
How nice of them. I'm assuming they do that for all cancelled visas?He’s scheduled to play either Monday or Tuesday Australian time, so there are 2-3 days.
Courts don’t normally operate over the weekend, nor do they operate in January (it’s our summer holidays) - but they will for this.
Now WTA wants to get involved. Why not leave the decisions to the authorities that have jurisdiction? At least Voracova obeyed when asked to leave the country. Novak wants special treatment for being number one in Tennis. I used to be neutral toward him before this happened.The WTA is supporting Voracova:
This is not true. Australia set rules with exceptions. He is trying to use the exceptions and Australia is like “we didn’t really mean them”Now WTA wants to get involved.

No one else has been let into the country quarantine free without being vaccinated. But in terms of visa cancellation more broadly, yes, they absolutely trawl people’s social media when deciding whether to grant or cancel. It’s pretty common for people to be caught out in fake relationships or with false protection claims that way.One one hand, he's getting much more scrutiny because he's a public figure. E.g., would people really go searching the instagrams of other people who entered the country using a legal exception for having recovered from C19 within a designated timeframe?
Of course! That’s why the Circuit Court in Melbourne has an average wait time of 4 years between directions hearing and final hearingHow nice of them. I'm assuming they do that for all cancelled visas?
It's also pretty hilarious given that when anti-vaxxers and conspiracy theorists rioted through the streets of Melbourne, urinated on the Shrine of Remembrance and carried a mock gallows through the streets chanting about their desire to hang the Premier of Victoria, all Angus Taylor's boss had to say was that he "understood people's frustrations" (Scott needs the far-right-wing vote, you see, but he also thinks being tough on Djokovic is a vote-winner with a different crowd).I don't agree with the reason given by the Aussie Immigration minister. He says (paraphrasing) Novak will spread the ***** .
That just gives his attorney a chance to prove that he does not. Why not say he did not follow the procedures (no travel 14 days before entering Australia)?
Can he though? Data suggests that while the vaccinated still spread it there less of a risk to others and any smart prosecutor would use the unmasked events Djokovic attended after allegedly testing positive to prove their point.That just gives his attorney a chance to prove that he does not.
