Australian Judges reveal Novak Djokovic had to miss Australian Open Because of Australian Governments Current Political Approach to Fighting Covid-19.- January 20, 2022
In a written statement, the judges said it was not irrational for Immigration Minister Alex Hawke to eject the Djokovic due to concerns the unvaccinated Serbian star could pose a risk to public health and order.
The ruling said it was open to the minister to infer Djokovic’s presence could encourage anti-vax protests, which could aid the spread of Covid-19.
And they noted the minister’s decision also included the star’s possible influence on people who were unsure about whether to take the vaccine.
“The possible influence on the second group comes from common sense and human experience: An iconic world tennis star may influence people of all ages, young or old, but perhaps especially the young and the impressionable, to emulate him. This is not fanciful; it does not need evidence,” the ruling said.
