2:03 am
that's a good question. again, it's something that people are trying to piece together now in melbourne. it's obviously it's what everyone's talking about. so basically what it seems is, although victoria the victorian state government and its process with tennis, australia involving medical expertise to decide whether to pay, meet him to play in the tournament or not. that medical medical exemption was approved and i think dr. rich, then he's very publicly declared that and jumped on a flight which possibly now looking back wasn't the best thing to do. could have come in a bit more like a anyway. he's jumped on a fly and arrived at melbourne airport like last night is trying to time it's 10 o'clock in morning now. here in melbourne, and the border force, which is run by the federal government who look after the actual borders of australia rather than victoria australia open. have looked at his visa and looked at the supporting evidence with that around the medical exemption and decided that
2:04 am
is not sufficient to to gain entry to australia. and i have contacted the state government last night and asked whether the state government would do anything further to support. and i think joking, which is entry into australia the psych i'm going to say no, we can't do anything further to support it. this is how it is, and therefore the strategy border force as made the decision to cancel his visa and is aiming to deport him to die back to serbia. but there is more to play out potentially in the courts. i mean, there's been a lot of negative reaction and a lot of strong feelings in australia as well. since we've talked to look 24 hours ago. what are people saying now, what's the reaction now to this latest news? that pretty much flabbergasted. you know, everyone who didn't want to come anyway is just saying, well, that's right, you know, turn around, get them out of here. but i think overall, the sense is just that. how could it come to this? how could it be that the 2 processes that should be far more aligned and fast
2:05 am
smoother. i mean, you've got a situation where you have state governments here in australia. this is the case and some of the countries around the world state governments are responsible for b and c, and then federal government's responsible for d and f, and the to just not meeting, not, not talking, not understanding the process, but you know, there's that. and so how did it come to that, but also from no joke of it? she's position and he's team. how could it be that these, these a requirements would not take off so robustly before he took that photograph announced that he was on his way to australia. i mean, everyone knows that getting into a country with the right these requirements is absolutely the 1st thing you have to deal with. so that the reaction really, really here is just everyone throwing their hands up in the air really. and everyone's blame each other. victorian government, when the federal government, vice versa, it's a mess. and it's actually quite embarrassing for the country,
2:06 am
i think as well. you know, it's one thing to be so, and you know, the rules apply to everyone, but don't let it come to this. surely this could have been sorted out before he actually got to fly. or i tennis, commentator for australian, open radio, steve pace, thank you for your insights. thanks. hello. russia says it will dispatch what it calls peacekeeping forces to kazakhstan, after the country's president asked for help to control pros, tests that have turned violent protest as and the largest city a, marty seized government buildings and set fires off the days of mass demonstrations of a surging fuel prices, at least 8 people had been killed. night fulls and the unrest in almighty intensifies foot. what began is a protest against fuel prices has quickly spiraled out of control. local media
