Lawyers of Tennis Star Novak Djokovic gives reason for Vaccine Exemption.
Written by News Room on January 9, 2022
Tennis star Novak Djokovic lawyers have showed in court documents that their client had a vaccine exemption to enter Australia after a Covid infection on 16 December.
Djokovic was denied entry to Australia after landing in Melbourne this week to play in the Australian Open.
His case has caused a huge outcry in Australia and made headlines around the world.
Djokovic, 34, who has said he is opposed to vaccination, had been granted a medical exemption to play in the tournament in a decision that infuriated many ordinary Australians.
In another development a second Australian Open hopeful, Renata Voracova from the Czech Republic, has now left the country after having her visa cancelled.
The Czech government had argued the 38-year-old, ranked 81 in the world, had entered Australia on a valid exemption, because she too had had Covid recently.
