World No.1 Tennis player Novak Djokovic’s appeal for entry in Australia with a medical exemption is based on the recent COVID-19 test, revealed the documents submitted by his his lawyers in the court.
According to his legal team, the Tennis ace also provided with a letter fron the chief medical officer of Tennis Autralia recording he had a medical exemption for a COVID vaccination.
It is claimed the exemption certificate was “provided by an Independent Expert Medical Review panel commissioned by Tennis Australia”, and “the decision of that panel had been reviewed and endorsed by an independent Medical Exemptions Review Panel of the Victorian State Government”, a sky sports report said.
The Serb players’ lawyers added he was granted an “Australian Travel Declaration” because he was told by the authorities [he met] the requirements for a quarantine-free arrival into Australia”.
