1. The whole country is a 'dangerous precedent'. Gulag Down Under.

  2. Yes, indeed. Can't agree more if it sets a precedent. Should watch the British judicial system’s procedures closely.
    Djokovic's case involves improper judicial procedures: (1) Federal Court of Australia did not direct the Minister, should he not be satisfied, to appeal its decision (10/01/22) determining Djokovic’s visa was valid, (2) Immigration Minister Alex Hawke overturned this court ruling on 14/01/22 close to 6.00pm by cancelling Djokovic’s visa (3) in the Federal Court of Australia under Chief Justice James Allsop, Judge Anthony Kelly who had made a ruling on 10/01/22 did not direct Minister Alex Hawke to appeal to a higher court, instead, set up a new proceeding to which the should-be appellant, the Immigration Minister, was now made respondent and Djokovic became appellant to the Minister's decision (!)
    A government minister can make personal decision that overturns court ruling? Come on Australia is not under Hitler or Mussolini! But it did actually happen under Scott Morrison resulting in Djokovic being escorted back to the detention centre in the manner of arrest and keeping in custody. The actions of the judiciary under James Allsop and of the government, beyond doubt, amount to criminal use of public authority. Covid-19 should not be an excuse here! Collusion of government and the judiciary? Not surprising due to the ingrained Australian electoral practice - all political parties get together at election and fix who is in who is out of the parliament.

  3. A gross injustice to Mr Djokovic, who has always been a good friend to Australia. A dangerous precedent for Australia, perpetrated by self-serving politicians who were happy to treat Novak unjustly in their pathetic hunt for the vote of the 'lowest common denominator' in the upcoming elections. Shame on you.

  4. Orwellian? Yes, but it is more what the Communists regimes used to do and worse.
    Legislation already exists in western societies that could do the worse part. Most cant see it because its being done very slowly and when they do see it, its too late.

  5. Nole has been treated the same as Julian Assange. No wonder why Julian is still stuck in Australia's motherland prison.
    Like Gough Whitlam once stated

    “Well may we say ‘God save the Queen’, because nothing will save the Government! "

  6. I’d say it’s an insane precedent. One person a threat to all Australia? Unbelievable. So wrong.
