11:02 am
men's tennis player had planned on the eve of this dry and open. we still to a government quarantine hotel with his visa revoked on touch down. immigration authorities had no back doctor, which had failed to make the requirements to enter. there are no special cases. rules are rules. that's the policy, the government and has been governments strong, border protection policies and particularly in relation to the pain damage. that is ensure the destroyer has one of the lowest death rights from carpet anywhere in the world. tennis astrology and the victorian government had granted him a medical exemption to travel to melbourne to defend his grand slam title for the federal government. the application insufficient with her port, the v that he used to try and enter a strayer did not allow for exemptions for unvaccinated travelers. the idea has done their job entry with a visa requires double vaccination or i medical exemption. i'm
11:03 am
advised that such an exemption was not in place and as a result, he is subject to the same rule as any one else doc of it has never publicly revealed his vaccination status, but it's opposite. action to vaccinate is well known. his medical exemption to travel to australia triggered widespread anger from many who endured months of locked downs and as covered 19 infections, rich records dialing numbers. but he's supporters are furious with the serbian president labeling the incident, harassment and maltreatment declaring on social media that he's country will fight for novak truth and justice. he's got the message and we all love him and co my sense become your whole look, you know, like greg, would you like a criminal thing? i know that dr. beach had been seeking to when we're 21st grand slam singles titles over taking ref. i on the dull and roger federer at this tournament for now those
11:04 am
hopes, same dashed instead. he's placing a major battle to try and stopped being st. hi. sarah class, audi 0. queensland, australia of joining us now from sidney is author and journalist brought germaine that good to have you with us. so 1st of all, how could a situation like this happened where he's given the visa, then it's currently cancelled. it seems like a major breakdown of communication between those are in boulder force, who works and the government to look after leases and control of the borders. another job is can anything look offers interest? i'm still really unclear how this issue is going to be resolved with no joke, which is lawyers launching a federal court challenge to the australian government. and just looking here and it's, it's only about a down in communication between jock of it's his camp and the authorities who gave
11:05 am
him the visa or is there some kind of internal breakdown within the government, assuming they checked his documents before they gave him the visa right, why does it come to the airport and then they check his documents again and say, oh no, you don't fulfill the requirements or the suggestion job which might not have applied for the like visa. or he may of applied for a visa, which did not involve these a medical exemption. so there's no number of reasons people can apply for when they're trying to come into australia. and it may well be that me apply wrong one and that's where things fell apart. but he didn't realize that probably until she got there and was faced with the iraq, see if you like of the on screen in border for. so we're very keen to, to follow the law or is this a political set back for the government or a potential political game for the government to say, look, we play by the rules?
11:06 am
yeah, certainly there's a perception here that there's been one rule for the in the famous and another for ordinary people. but there's also this just not the slightest drama is being exploited by the government to take attention away from its own felt kind of with policies. now the number of cases continued to climb in a new south wells, at least not 35000 people reported to have contracted the bug in the past 24 hours . but to what extent will this will influence no joke of issues, attempts to play in the australia, no one will that remains to be seen. and in fact, a court case is on the way in melbourne at the moment to try to get some clarity of try to influence the government's decision making and try to restore that lisa double allow, know the joint venture to play a 1000000 open. so give us an idea of how this plays out, was the processes you have to stay at the airport. kenny leave the country and go home if he wanted. and how long does it take for an appeal like this?
11:07 am
well, okay, it's as long as a piece of string, we don't really know the we, we understand that joke of it is actually in a quarantine hotel than at the moment awaiting his fate. while his lawyers discussed the issue, a federal court hearing in melbourne at the same time, another hearing is going on as i speak. it may well result in an adjournment of the case allowing the load number one to stay in australia, or at least for the time being, but its prospects of playing in the australian open joe loop to hope for his lawyers have to prove that the australian border falls, who claimed he did not meet the terms of his medical exemption for visa 2 angels, failure were mistaken in their interpretation of law. under this stage, it seems they were in the right. and as we thought of the prime minister to say it was the plan's responsibility to make sure he had the correct paperwork before arriving in australia. all right, thanks so much. roger main out there and give chronic virus infections have
11:08 am
climbed even higher in india. the number of new cases is up nearly a 3rd on 1st day to 90000. it follows the steve fries all week, which health official se been driven by the on the cross variance, most of the cases turned out to be mild. but india has recorded one on the cross link death. they please now requiring old people over the age of 50 to get vaccinated. so yeah, clear walk penalties. people may face if they refuse. health minister says everyone in that age group will now be checked for their vaccination status before they enter the workplace. dozens of protests as have been killed in cassock, stands, largest city during another night, a violent demonstrations. according to media reports, russia lay the lines for former soviet state says it'll send peacekeepers after the president asked for help. rosalind jordan reports what started as protests against rising fuel prices has turned into 4 days of anti government demonstrations across

kazakstan. the attacks on government forces and property and the takeover of all monte airport have triggered a state of emergency peacekeeping troops from russia and other former soviet countries are now on their way to help president hudson jo martel, chi of defeat what he calls enemies of the state director for the routine unit when decker, those are real terrorists, we know very well, but they are covering to rampaging in al much in other cities. they are seizing buildings and infrastructure. and most importantly, the, our season premises with small arms are located. household citizens took to the street on sunday to denounce the government's decision to raise fuel prices. gas for cars went from $0.11 per liter to $0.28 per liter. in a country where the monthly minimum wage is less than a $100.00, demonstrators say they can't afford it. as the protests have grown in size,
11:10 am
so to have the demonstrators demands, they now include a more general call for government accountability. at the you, when an appeal for calm, the following with concern and monitoring the situation in kazakhstan, i think it's very important for all involved in these current events, to exercise restraint, refrain from violence and promote a dialogue in addressing all the pertinent issues. while with the white house pushed back against a narrative being promoted by russia, there are some crazy russian claims about the us being behind this. so let me just use this opportunity to convey that is absolutely false. and clearly a part of the standard russian. this information playbook, we've seen a lot of in past years, a former u. s. diplomat calls the political upheaval inevitable but this has been festering for a long. busy time, the stupendous corruption of the nicer bye of family. and those of i have corona's
11:11 am
has caused a lot of concern in context on where despite tremendous, well, well income inequality is really quite substantial. and a lot of people are living really close to the subsistence margin public uproar over the cost of living now challenging the powers that be in context on rosalyn jordan elders era, washington or you are so imposed sanctions on bosnian serb leader miller doric washington accuses him of corrupt activities that threaten to destabilize the region and undermine the 1995 piece. a core that ended bosnian war, bosnia is facing its biggest political crisis since the war garbage has threatened to separate bosnian serb rather dominated various from bosnia. vienna's marriage has more from danya lucre. in bosnia phenomenon, miller dot com, member of bosnia herzegovina presidency, says that he doesn't know why he is being punished with these sanctions. and he
11:12 am
also says that this will not stop him. i have to remind you that he is been already object of the sanctions from the united states of america in 2016. the reason for that back then was the fact that he didn't act in accordance with the data please at court. and this time, in an official public release, the united states explained that they introduced these sanctions because the mil roddic announced that he would return certain authorities from bosnia herzegovina to the public. a substitute or to be more specific from the state level to the entity level. he said that he would form again the army of republic, a sort of scared that he would return the entire tax system from the bosnian. her school been a to republican from scott and that he would do the same with the judiciary system . the united states made some other decisions concerning banning traveling to certain citizens of bosnia herzegovina. one of them is mylanta gal tiara,
11:13 am
who used to be the president of the high, traditionally a council in boston, her sabina. and right now he is one of the advisors to me. laura dominique also were banned from traveling to the united states. is miss at cook each who is member of the state parliament. and the reason for these decisions was the fact that both to guilty and cook each were involved all also in a corruption and respond stoddick is accusing the us of making up fake stories to the america. the services in news was in the united states, his acid mini lies and full 60 stations. it's beyond belief that a major world power such as the u. s, which broke the dayton peace agreement continues to view such monstrous lies implicating me and corrupt activities. but without any specifics, i am not under legal scrutiny on allegations of any professional misconduct. and in
11:14 am
the past, the courts in bosnia rejected claims about my supposed misconduct. if i did something wrong, it's up to the courts in bosnia to establish that and not up to some us bureaucrat . so i had an al jazeera why this tune is ian politicians, worsening health is having ripple effects across a fractured country. ah, ah, look forward to brighter skies the winter sponsored my cattle airways. hello there, sitting a lot more like winter now across much of europe we got rain, sleet, and snow coming into many parts is certainly much colder than it has been. recently we got a malware, grassy trying to push its way back him from the atlantic. he said that in the form of this massive cloud, these weather systems will roll through with some slightly less cold air. the

11:18 am
be distributed more equally around the world. to achieve that, over the next 3 months, the only kron variant is expected to account for 3000000000 infections worldwide. that's as many as during the entire demik so far. and yet, there is optimism that this may be the beginning of the end. i think the vaccines and drugs and now available can reduce kind of a button by a 95 percent so that it's no longer top 10 house problem. i think it's going to be very difficult to actually get to under control in terms of controlling cases that we're talking about controlling severe disease. and which i think mortality massively so was that still will be cases unfortunate. they, they will be much less severe. i or south africa, where on the ground were supposed detected these now providing intriguing clues about what may happen next. infection numbers, they're dropping fast in
11:19 am
a population that achieved high levels of natural immunity. down more than 50 percent from their peak restrictions are being lifted. and a number of international studies support claims that alma cronies, less dangerous, confining itself more to the nasal and upper respiratory passages than the lungs. the infection numbers are enormous and yet undeniably the public health consequences are less severe. so have we genuinely reached a turning point? well, plenty of scientists seem to think so. and even the world health organization says that 2022 could bring an end to the acute phase of the pandemic. but the world health organization cautions that's possible only if the vaccines and treatments available in the rich world are made equally available to all a goal. the world is some way from achieving and even then scientific views are divided the ichenberry and actually shows us that this bias by flexibility. on the
11:20 am
contrary, it is so different to the other readings that we've seen that's actually able to enter and sell in incomplete different ways from the waves previous being used to enter and what the real life is to be paid for the application of this virus is quite large and as long as the transmission is allowed to continue, the course of the pandemic is going to be very, very unpredictable. high transmission rates raise other concerns to the debilitating effects of long covey, the continued risk to the vulnerable and the unvaccinated. increasingly, the policy thinking seems to be shifting away from long term control measures towards the view that the vast majority of us may be able to live alongside the virus. eventually posing as much risk to public health as the flu. jona whole al jazeera london in
