Australia’s Immigration Minister Alex Hawke took this decision on public interest and health and good order grounds even after he won the court case against the Australian government’s decision to cancel his visa and released him from immigration detention on Monday.

Alex Hawke said his thoughts on the situation in a statement. “Today I exercised my power under section 133C(3) of the Migration Act to cancel the visa held by Mr. Novak Djokovic on health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so.”

On Thursday, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that the government’s opinion on Novak remains the same. He said it after the draw for the Australian Open was delayed without any prior information.

Novak has surely angered everyone when he was going to Melbourne for the Australian Open 2022 with a medical exemption. His exemption was invalid to the Australian Border Force officials. Hence, he has to stay at an immigration detention hotel for several days alongside asylum-seekers.
