Judge reinstates Djokovic’s visa, orders release from detention

Al Jazeera, 10 Jan 2022
An Australian judge has reinstated tennis star Novak Djokovic’s visa and ruled that he be released from immigration detention.
Judge Anthony Kelly ordered on Monday that Djokovic be released within 30 minutes and his passport and other travel documents returned to him, rekindling the world number one’s chance to win a record 21st Grand Slam title at the upcoming Australian Open.
However, lawyers for the federal government told the court the country’s immigration minister was reserving the right to exercise his personal power to again revoke Djokovic’s visa.
