‘You can’t ask me’ – Novak Djokovic judge loses patience with defence request

In a directions hearing on Friday night local time, Djokovic’s lawyers set out their plans to appeal the Immigration Minister’s decision to cancel his visa.

Stephen Lloyd, representing minister Alex Hawke, agreed to the timetable laid out by the defence, expecting to have their final submissions filed by 12pm AEDT on Saturday and suggesting that the Immigration Minister has by 10pm.

Mr Lloyd also confirmed that the world No 1 would not be deported until the proceedings were completed.

Judge Anthony Kelly outlined the timetable for Djokovic to be detained on Saturday following an interview at the Immigration offices at 8am local time, spend a period between 10am-2pm at his lawyers’ offices – where he is classed as being detained if border force officials are present on the same floor of the building – and spend the evening in a detention hotel before being taken back to his lawyers’ offices for a hearing on Sunday.
