The Curious Case of Novak Djokovic | Case by Case (Ep. 20)

The leading sports news story of 2022 has been a legal one. Novak Djokovic has run the full gamut of the Australian immigration system. First he had a visa, then he was put into detention, then he was released, before finally the Australian Government revoked the visa and sent him home.

In this episode of case by case, Luke and Calum look at the final decision of the Federal Court, by which Djokovic was unceremoniously booted out of the country.

A fair result for someone who clearly didn’t want to play by the rules? A misapplication of the law? Or a legal system designed to constrain the judiciary on matters of immigration and put all possible power in the hands of the Government?

This episode makes for an interesting look at the law behind the news.
