Judge quashes Djokovich visa cancellation and orders his immediate release

Most Popular

Judge Anthony Kelly has sensationally quashed the Australian Federal Government’s decision to cancel his visa.

According to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald:

  • Federal Circuit Court judge Anthony Kelly has ordered the immediate release Djokovic from immigration detention.
  • The government’s decision to cancel the temporary visa was to be quashed and the respondent, being the Minister for Home Affairs, to pay his costs and to take all necessary steps to release Djokovic from detention no later than 30 minutes after the end of the hearing.

Djokovich court hearing news

Djokovich is not out of the water yet, as lawyers for the government indicated that the Minister of Immigration, who has a personal power to cancel a visa, may in due course exercise that power. However, today’s court loss is a clear embarrassment for Scott Morrison’s government, and any attempt by the immigration minister to intervene could be seen by many as the actions of a ‘sore loser’.

  1. I wouldn’t describe, “any attempt by the immigration minister to intervene . . . as the actions of a ‘sore loser.’ ” It would be infact, the actions of “a tyrant” who had no respect for the rule of law!
