The President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, stated tonight that Serbia will be with Novak Đoković, and asked the Australian Prime Minister why, as he stated, they are harassing and abusing not only the Serbian tennis player and his family, but also an entire nation free and proud.
In a video message on his Instagram profile, Vučić asked the Australian Prime Minister if they wanted to ban Djokovic from winning the trophy in Melbourne for the 10th time, why they did not return him immediately or said that it was impossible to get a visa for their country.
“Why are you harassing him and why are you living not only over him and his family, but also over an entire nation that is free and proud,” the Serbian president asked.
He also asked if it was necessary to win some elections.
“Do you need that to please your public,” Vucic asked.
“Respected citizens of Serbia, we are facing many problems, pressures in the region, pressures from around the world, but what they have never managed to take away from us as a nation is our heart, pride and dignity,” Vucic pointed out, reports Tanjug.
I say this because of everything that has been happening in Melbourne, Australia, and not because I am interested in getting any political points or how many there will be because I have never adorned myself with other people’s feathers, but attacks and pressures on Novak Djokovic, a Serbian citizen “Citizens of this country, for reasons unknown to us, have reached such proportions that it is impossible for me not to speak out and say not only what I think but also what our response to Australia is,” Vucic pointed out.
“I probably wouldn’t say a word that, after the repeated decision of the executive bodies of the Australian authorities to deny Djokovic a visa, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison did not speak out, saying he was satisfied and welcomed the abolition of the visa for the world’s best tennis player,” said the Serbian president. , expressing astonishment “primarily due to the fact that such decisions can be made by the executive authorities and after the valid decisions of the judicial authorities”.
“They often give us opportunities about what the rule of law is. You can imagine what it would look like if a minister in Serbia could annul the decisions of judges, ie valid judicial bodies “, said Vučić, adding that they showed us what an independent judiciary looks like, but above all what an irrelevant judiciary looks like because all power is in the hands of the executive. “
“A president from a small country has appeared and we can say that to a great prime minister from a big country. You know why I can, because I am telling the truth and because you also know that I am telling you the truth “, said Vučić.
He pointed out that “Serbia will be with Djokovic and be able to respond to you by behaving much better than you treated Djokovic, but respecting international customs and respecting everything that means adequate representation of one state,” the Serbian president said.
“We will fight for Novak Djokovic and the fact that you will harass him for a day, two or five more or less will not change the judgment of our people about the people of Australia that we highly respect and appreciate, but also about Novak Djokovic,” said the Serbian president.
You can write hundreds of thousands of texts of the worst about Djokovic, he will remain the best tennis player of all time and he will remain in our hearts, Vucic said. “And you who think that you are achieving something by harassing and living, you will never approach not only Novak Djokovic, but any ordinary man, both our and your proud and dignified people.”
“Long live Serbia, Novace, we are with you,” Vucic said.
