Saga

 


語感を養うためには多読が必要だと痛感するのが、言葉のチョイス。今回のジョコビッチの騒動ではsagaが使われていました。


(ウィズダム)
saga
1サガ(中世北欧の英雄物語); 武勇伝説, 大河[系図]小説.
2(くだけて)込み入った長話, 苦労話.

(ジーニアス)
saga
〔…についての〕(長期にわたる)一連の出来事(の話)〔of〕.

状況が二転三転したことを受けてのsagaだと思いますが、1ヶ月ほどのこの騒動も「長期」と実感されているのは、興味を持ってウォッチしていた人は理解できると思います。

CNN
With the year's first tennis grand slam fast approaching, the saga surrounding Novak Djokovic's visa looks set to continue right up to the moment play is scheduled to start on Monday.

Japan Today
Players at the Australian Open were on Saturday growing tired of the Novak Djokovic visa saga overshadowing the opening Grand Slam of the year with Rafael Nadal declaring no one was bigger than the tournament.

早速、オーストラリアの首相と移民相がコメントを出していました。両者とも同じような言葉遣いなので申し合わせをしている部分もあるのでしょう。

The Full Federal Court of Australia unanimously decided to dismiss Mr Novak Djokovic’s application for judicial review which sought to challenge the Minister for Immigration’s decision to cancel his visa.

This cancellation decision was made on health, safety and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so.

I welcome the decision to keep our borders strong and keep Australians safe.

As I said on Friday, Australians have made many sacrifices during this pandemic, and they rightly expect the result of those sacrifices to be protected.

Over the pandemic, together we have achieved one of the lowest death rates, strongest economies and highest vaccination rates, in the world.

Strong borders are fundamental to the Australian way of life as is the rule of law.

Our Government has always understood this and has been prepared to take the decisions and actions necessary to protect the integrity of our borders.

I thank the Court for their prompt attention to these issues and the patience of all involved as we have worked to resolve this issue.

It’s now time to get on with the Australian Open and get back to enjoying tennis over the summer.

Statement regarding Mr Novak Djokovic

I welcome today’s unanimous decision by the Full Federal Court of Australia, upholding my decision to exercise my power under the Migration Act to cancel Mr Novak Djokovic’s visa in the public interest.

Australia’s strong border protection policies have kept us safe during the pandemic, resulting in one of the lowest death rates, strongest economic recoveries, and highest vaccination rates in the world. Strong border protection policies are also fundamental to safe-guarding Australia’s social cohesion which continues to strengthen despite the pandemic.

Australians have made great sacrifices to get to this point and the Morrison Government is firmly committed to protecting this position, as the Australian people expect.

To date around 43 million vaccination doses have been administered in Australia and more than 91.6% of Australians aged 16 years and over are fully vaccinated.

Accordingly, Australia has been able to commence a step-by-step, safe reopening of its international border as a result of this successful vaccination program.

ジョコビッチも声明を出していますね。I welcome ...としていた首相に比べてこちらは、I am extremely disappointed with ....と語っています。もちろん愚痴をこぼすわけではなく、I respect...と決定には素直に従うと述べています。

A statement from Novak Djokovic:

I would like to make a brief statement to address the outcomes of today’s Court hearing.

I will now be taking some time to rest and to recuperate, before making any further comments beyond this.

I am extremely disappointed with the Court ruling to dismiss my application for judicial review of the Minister’s decision to cancel my visa, which means I cannot stay in Australia and participate in the Australian Open.

I respect the Court’s ruling and I will cooperate with the relevant authorities in relation to my departure from the country.

I am uncomfortable that the focus of the past weeks has been on me and I hope that we can all now focus on the game and tournament I love.

I would like to wish the players, tournament officials, staff, volunteers and fans all the best for the tournament.

Finally, I would like to thank my family, friends, team, supporters, fans and my fellow Serbians for your continued support. You have all been a great source of strength to me.
