Serbian president decries Djokovic ‘harassment’ amid reaction to visa cancellation
Aleksandar Vučić says ‘whole of Serbia’ is backing tennis player as debate rages over Australia’s handling of Covid vaccine exemption saga
The Serbian president has accused Australia of “maltreatment” of tennis star Novak Djokovic, who was denied entry to the country after he flew into Melbourne with a medical exemption from coronavirus vaccination rules.
Djokovic was granted a controversial exemption to enter Australia and compete in the Australian Open, but was held up at Melbourne airport by authorities for several hours before his visa was cancelled. The Australian Border Force said he had failed to provide adequate evidence to support his exemption.
