Novak Djokovic leaves Australia after losing court appeal



The Federal Court hearing Novak Djokovic’s case has upheld the government’s decision to deport the tennis ace

An Emirates flight carrying Djokovic departed Melbourne Airport just before 11pm AEDT, bound for Dubai.

Chief Justice James Allsop made it clear the decision was not being made by the Australian government, but by the courts.

“These grounds focused on whether the decision was irrational or legally unreasonable,” Justice Allsop said.

It means the tennis star will be deported before he was due to play at the Australian Open opening round on Monday night.

Novak Djokovic is challenging the Australian government’s decision to cancel his visa on public health grounds.

He must now pay costs of his expensive legal bid to remain in Australia.

The tennis star has not been vaccinated against Covid-19, which is a requirement for foreigners entering the country.

Lawyers from both sides have now made their cases to judges at the Federal Court of Australia.

The emergency hearing has adjourned so the judges can consider the arguments, with a verdict expected within hours.

Djokovic faces deportation and a three-year ban on obtaining a new visa if he loses the appeal. But if he is successful, he will be free to defend his Australian Open title on Monday night.

Australia’s Immigration Minister Alex Hawke cancelled Djokovic’s visa on Friday, saying his presence in the country risked fanning anti-vaccine sentiment. The Serbian player’s lawyers argue that deporting him would stoke anti-vaccine views and protests

It follows a turbulent 10-days in which Djokovic has been detained by immigration authorities, released and then detained again

FAA uncovers Boeing quality control issues



The Federal Aviation Administration disclosed concerning findings from its 737 MAX production audit involving Boeing and supplier Spirit AeroSystems.

The audit uncovered multiple instances where the companies allegedly failed to adhere to manufacturing quality control standards.

The FAA highlighted significant “non-compliance issues” within Boeing’s manufacturing processes, including concerns related to parts handling, storage, and product control.

While a summary of the audit findings has been shared with the companies involved, the details have not been made public due to the ongoing nature of the investigation.

Following a mid-air emergency on January 5 involving a new Alaska Airlines 737 MAX 9, where a door plug was lost at 16,000 feet, the FAA initiated the audit.

This incident prompted a temporary grounding of the MAX 9 and raised questions about the aircraft’s safety protocols.

New acquisition

Boeing, in response to these revelations, has been in discussions to acquire Spirit AeroSystems.

However, the company has not provided immediate comment regarding the audit findings.

FAA Administrator Mike Whitaker emphasized the necessity for Boeing to implement comprehensive corrective measures to address what he termed as “systemic quality-control issues.”

Whitaker stated that Boeing must commit to substantial improvements, with clear milestones and expectations set forth by the FAA.
