‘I support Palestine.’
In the video, John is saying, “My name is John… I am from Australia. I came (to the field) to meet Virat Kohli and I support Palestine.” He is wearing a T-shirt in support of stopping the bombing of Gaza. His T-shirt had “Free Palestine” printed on it.
The person is of Chinese-Filipino origin
During questioning, the man was identified as Wayne Johnson, an Australian of Chinese-Filipino origin. It is noteworthy that ICC does not allow any political sloganeering during its event and no such act is allowed in India also.
Let us tell you that after Hamas’ attack on Israel on October 7, it attacked Gaza. Since then, more than 12,000 Palestinians have died.
