Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic was remanded in administrative custody on Saturday after Australia revoked his border entry visa for the second time for failing to get a vaccine against Kovit-19.
Australian officials have argued that Djokovic, who has not been vaccinated against Govt-19, should be deported, saying his presence on the soil “promotes anti-vaccine sentiment”.
In addition, an Australian court is scheduled to hold a hearing tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. local time (22:30 GMT Saturday) regarding the cancellation of Novak Djokovic’s entry visa to anyone.
The world number one is fighting to overturn the Australian government’s decision to deport him.
Judge David O’Callaghan said on Saturday that the court would consult with all parties on whether the case should be heard by a single judge or a full court.
Djokovic is due to appear before Australian immigration officials today and surrender to authorities in Melbourne for an interview, according to a court order issued last night.
