Serbian president Aleksandar Vučić criticises Australia on Novak Djokovic visa ruling – video
Serbian president Aleksandar Vučić criticises the Australian federal court’s decision to dismiss Novak Djokovic’s visa appeal as ‘political’. ‘Of course, all of us in Serbia are very much disappointed with the court’s ruling,’ says Vučić. ‘I think Australian authorities humiliated themselves with these kinds of procedures against Novak Djokovic.’
Djokovic was trying to use a medical exemption to get around the requirements that everyone at the Australian Open – players, their support teams, spectators and others – be vaccinated against Covid-19.
