Protest rally in Belgrade to support Djokovic

The protest rally for the deportation of Novak Djokovic from Australia took place in Belgrade this afternoon. The rally was organized by the family of a Serbian tennis player.

A political dimension is being attached to Serbia in the case of the deportation of Novak Djokovic from Australia. The President of the Republic, Aleksandar Vuτςiτς, stated in a press conference that he is in constant telephone contact with Novak κοokovi. And assessed that the political leadership of Australia uses the event for political purposes. Vuτςiτς said that the Serbian government had asked the Australian government to allow κοokovi. To stay at his rented house in Melbourne so that he could train until Monday, when the decision on his appeal was issued. "We asked that Djokovic not stay in the infamous hotel for illegal immigrants but be allowed to stay in the house he rents," Vucic said. The president of Serbia pointed to a coordinated effort to exclude Djokovic from the tennis tournament in Australia. "Whoever you can not beat on the field then you try to prevent him from participating in various ways," said Vucic. Some politicians of the ruling party in Serbia called on the people to demonstrate outside the Australian embassy in Belgrade. Something that has not happened so far. Public opinion in Serbia is deeply dissatisfied with the refusal of the Australian border authorities to allow Novak Djokovic to enter the country. There is talk in the media of an attempt to exclude him from the tennis tournament with "fraudulent" means.

Djokovic's family gave a press conference in Belgrade where he described the detention of Novak Djokovic at the Illegal Immigrant Hotel in Melbourne as "captivity". Novak's father, τζerανan κοokovi., Claimed that the border authorities were treating his son as a "common criminal" and described the Australian government as "chauvinistic". Serdan Djokovic called on citizens to reserve a hero's welcome to Novak Djokovic when he returns to Belgrade.

Novak Djokovic, who refuses to get the coronavirus vaccine, received a health exemption for entering Australia and participating in the "Australian Open" tournament. According to Serbian media, Djokovic submitted a certificate stating that he fell ill last June and was thus allowed to enter. However, given that six months have passed since Djokovic fell ill, the Australian border authorities decided to deport him and today he is in a hotel where illegal immigrants are staying. Djokovic's lawyers have appealed and a court ruling is expected to be handed down on Monday.
