a civil trial in the u. s. for sex abuse and the man who assassinated us presidential candidate, robert kennedy. 54 years ago is denied for roll. my california gov ah australia's immigration minister has canceled tennis dawn of a jock of witches these up just days ahead of the australian open championship on health grounds. chalk of which was unvaccinated 1st had his visa revoke last week after landing in australia. but a judge overturned the ruling and allowed the world number 110, aspire to state, because he had been given a vaccine exemption. australian prime minister scott morrison released the following statement, saying, i understand that following careful consideration, action has been taken by the minister to cancel mister jarvis, his visa held on health and good order grounds on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so. he added that australians have made many sacrifices
12:02 pm
during this pandemic, and they rightly expect the results of those sacrifices to be protected. sir clark joins us now live from brisbin. sarah, have we heard anything then from no, that jock of ritual his legal team? we haven't heard anything from novak and he is a joke of ich and his legal team as yet. but we do expect them to appeal this decision. and based on that, we do expect them to take it back, potentially to the federal circuit court in melbourne over the weekend. now the alex hope, the immigration minister, he always held these discretionary powers and to overrule that court decision. and as a result, he did, he pursued that the government is always students ground and said that rules are rules we want, we was, will uphold those restrictions. the tough border restrictions that been in place the last couple of years. and i said that job which failed to meet the criteria on entry. and now a joke which he could potentially meet to pulls it based on this decision,
12:03 pm
the alex hope, the minister said, the decision was made on the grounds that it was in the public interest to do so. and that's a joke of each post, a risk to the australian community. now the government, they said that last week the board of forces stopped jock of ich, i'm at tele marina airport and question him for hours. and it was, his visit was cancelled on the thursday morning. he then spent time in the detention, the immigration detention in that hotel in carlton at the court then overruled the visa cancellation and on friday, around 6 pm in melbourne. this is when the government intervened again and, and pursued what the line is always up held, that these board restrictions must remain in place and the government would, wouldn't put in place any special treatment for the likes of tennis doors. of like novak joke of ich, and as a result, 6 pm on friday, that visa has been cancelled for a 2nd time. and he does phase not just deportation, but potentially a banner re entering australia for another 3 years. so there is this about him not being vaccinated because yeah, of course he said that he had in
12:04 pm
a he had scolded before. um, so then i guess therefore the vax added the vase. he was exempt from the visa because he had immunity. does this mean that you can't get into estrella if you are not vaccinated even if you've had covered before or is this on some other grounds? well the background to this is that sir john rich sought a medical exemption to travel to play in the australian open. and that was approved by tennis australia and that request for exemption to travel and to be granted entry into australia was approved by 2 panels at one being the medical pedal or board of medical, a specialists of based by the estate tennis estrella. they prove that the government then simply said that the job which didn't meet the criteria to enter australia because of his unvaccinated status. i should note that this stray an open or tennis players must be vaccinated to play unless you get this medical exemption
12:05 pm
. now barry's evidence that jock of it's presented in the last couple of days in statements released by his instagram, noted that he had tested positive for covered 19 a background mid december. a since that's her, that's made was found to be positive. he didn't actually appear publicly in a couple of places. he also filled out. one of the members of his team took the wrong box on his australian travel declaration, on landing on entry, and his train board of forces pick that up. so he's been put a number full statements have been certainly highlighted on his entering. therefore the government says he doesn't meet the criteria. and i should also note out that these strains were polled in some polls around astray overnight. i should say more than 80 percent of people agreed that the government should to port joker, which based on the fact that we've had these very tough border restrictions in place for the last 2 years. and the prime minister, if he was to grant an exemption for the likes of novick jock of it's the wills. when men's number one tennis play it that lap for him to enter australia and be exempt from some of those tough rules. and that certainly would have set
12:06 pm
a very dangerous precedent for other people entering australia. i'm sure this isn't the end of it. thank you for that for now. sarah clark in brisbin. the number of new coven 19 infections in india has risen to more than 260000. in the past 24 hours, driven by the on the con variant and says, hundreds of thousands of hindu pilgrims gathered for a religious festival in the state of west bengal. their affairs that the gathering could be a so called super spreader event. happening, natal has more from new delhi that this point most of the country has been under some form of restriction for a couple of weeks. and so the fear is that these gatherings could undo all the precautionary measures. the country has been taken off for some time now. now, as we speak, uh, there are various festivals being celebrated across the country. some states have banned these large gatherings, but many just have some coven, 19 protocols like vaccines, and just, and they are continuing. for example,
12:07 pm
in the northern state of utter probation. now, despite all the cubs there and all these measures, cases had been rising at the side even before to day's mega event. for example, dozens of police officers who have been deployed there for sometime have tested positive. the city itself has seen cases, rice, 10 times in just one week, the largest gathering is in the state of west been gone. now that state has become a cobit hotspot of sorts. where new coven 19 cases have surge to all time high? now public health experts are reminding the government that just last year we had a situation during the delta surge when millions of people across india continue to get infected as the so called super spread of religious gatherings continue. and that is again, the fear this time china is facing
12:08 pm

12:09 pm
more rigorous checks for inbound travelers into bay ging. there is also a suspected case of coven 19 in the southern district of phone tai that's believe to be linked to the change in cluster as well. as we know, one case in china is one to many. there are around 140 cases every day in china at the moment, and that is causing some concern in the country. now chasing cove is 0 is something that we know a lot about here. and hong kong to there are currently are under around 10 local cases every day. but there are some districts that are more alarming than others. the western district of chin moon that is under mandatory testing right now because 2 nurses have tested positive their hong kong airport is the spending trans, at flights from around $150.00 destinations for a month. it's the latest attempt to ramp up measures against corona virus. outbreak fueled by the on the chrome variant. last week, hong kong banned in coming flights from many destinations, including australia,

canada, france, and india. north korea has testified to miss isles hours after the u. s. called the new sanctions is the 3rd launch this month. and the 6th since september, the government defended the test. there's a legitimate right to self defense, and ward of a stronger reaction if more sanctions are imposed. the e. u has condemned a cyber attack on ukraine's government and is called an emergency meeting to respond hackers, targeted websites for the ministry of foreign affairs and other agencies. it's not yet clear who is behind it. foreign ministry says has been a long record of russian cyber attacks in the past. there's been recent tensions after moscow sent troops to its border with ukraine. russia's foreign minister, so guy leverage says his country's prepared to respond. if western nations reject moscow's security proposals, he was a denial on the in rising to the mall,
12:11 pm
including the limits to nato expansion. several rounds of talks to diffuse. the crisis and eastern ukraine have been taking place this week. but the most volatile is i've still got to lose. we have talked about the fact that such an approach is acceptable and we cannot approve of such were union electoral interpretation of security guarantees. so we expect a response from our colleagues in writing, just like we did because we have submitted our proposals in writing and will continue working to be prepared for any kind of developments. convinced that if there's google and if there's will compromise, one can always find mutual acceptable solutions. although jabari joins us now live from moscow. daughter is anything that the. 9 the russian foreign minister said new well, he reiterated that russia's patience with the west is the actions that the west is
12:12 pm
running out. and that i think there is now a sense of urgency in terms of the timeline that we are seeing here. he said that they want to see concrete response guarantees from nato and the united states that they will not artificially expand nato and also not include new members and entice scandinavian countries into joining the alliance. the foreign minister reiterated this country's position that the troops they have alongside the border with ukraine is well within their rights. that this is a sovereign move. they can move their troops around their own land as they see fit . but i think there was a sense that what we've been hearing all week after meetings that have taken place in geneva, and brussels. and then in vienna on thursday that their talks really have not been successful. and the spokesperson of president vladimir putin also said on thursday that the talks with the wes have not been successful. and that if the united states
12:13 pm
carries out on their threats to sanction president putin, they will see this as their severing ties with russia. so there is a sense that the talks have not the escalated the situation, but rather highlighted the differences that continue to exist. and as we move forward, it's very possible that things will just escalate further until there's some kind of breakthrough. but for the time being brushed, maintaining their position that they are well within the right to demand that nature does not expand and that they're troop movements along the border with ukraine is within their right to do so. and that they are waiting for a written response from nato about their demands. and that also, they will not wait indefinitely. that was a point the say foreign minister survey lover of mate was that there is not an indefinite amount of time that russia will wait for a response. and they will take the necessary action when at the time is right, according to the foreign minister and jabari there in moscow. thank you. still come here on al jazeera, marcy's more problems with the british prime minister,
