So far, so good.

Rgrf,

You're missing a key piece of information:

A. He submitted an entry form with false information on it.

I believe this by itself is grounds for revoking his visa.

In the debate about his vaccination status, the fact that he lied on his visa application about his recent international travel seems to have been ignored by most.

Not only is he unvaccinated, but he has also been at high risk of contagion and lied about it.

Kick the bum out.

It hasn't been handled well, but like Nadal said, there is a way he could have avoided the whole thing. He is probably the best tennis player to play the game, so the Australian Open understandably wants him to play. I don't think they expected the outrage, as he has been a very popular player there. Really unfortunate.

Growing protests in Serbia over Rio Tinto mining

Serbia may suspend lithium deal with Rio Tinto

“I will not give up fighting for justice and truth,” says Djokovic after opposing Rio Tinto’s deal

Rio Tinto Group is an Anglo-Australian multinational and the world's second-largest metals and mining corporation, behind BHP, producing iron ore, copper, diamonds, gold and uranium.

This isn't about a VAX. This is Multinational bulling when they don't get their way. Damn this sports punk getting in the way of our $$$$$$$$$$$

In an attempt to appease environmentalists, Serbia's populist government suspended in December two key laws that would have helped Rio Tinto obtain permission to launch a lithium mine in western Serbia.

Rio's not that influential in Australian politics. In fact, they've stirred the pot there by disturbing historic aboriginal sites and the government appears to have run out of patience with them recently.

TLDR: He lied, he perjured himself, he broke the rules and endangered lives. If he's permitted to stay and play, that's the sign of a corrupt government.

Interesting. I had not seen that.

Djokovic is a dishonest jerk who thinks he is above the rules, but the gov't of Australia and the Open have also clucked this up royally. He should not be allowed to play. Send him packing.
