Australian court orders Novak Djokovic release from detention

DW, 10 Jan 2022
Novak Djokovic has won his right to stay in Australia after a judge ruled in his favor on Monday, finding the government's decision to revoke his visa "unreasonable." Circuit Court Judge Anthony Kelly ordered the government to release Djokovic from the hotel quarantine within 30 minutes of the ruling, and return his passport and other travel documents to him. The ruling rekindles the world tennis number one's hopes of winning a record-breaking 21st Grand Slam title. However, the court was told Australia's immigration minister has reserved the right to exercise ministerial power to revoke Djokovic's visa. In response, the judge warned the government lawyers that "the stakes have now risen, rather than receded."
