****************** 1. COURT UPDATE *******************

Come to Court (161 Elgin Street, Ottawa), and show your support for Dr. Hassan Diab.

The extradition hearing will resume on Monday December 20, 2010.

Cross-examination of defense handwriting expert, Mr. Brian Lindblom, will start at 10:00 am and is expected to conclude by 12:30 pm.

The testimony of Mr. John Paul Osborn, the second of three defence handwriting experts, is scheduled to start at 2:15 pm. Mr. Osborn’s testimony is expected to continue through Wednesday December 22.

In his technical review of the French handwriting report, Mr. Osborn observed:

“It is [my opinion] that the instructions to the examiner included within the report, the basis for the conclusions rendered in the report and the terminology employed to express those conclusions were grossly inadequate and the methodology employed was both clearly inappropriate and utterly biased towards a specific conclusion. Furthermore, [I am] of the opinion that the report itself was created in a manner intended to confuse the lay reader as a means by which to mask the egregious flaws in methodology and the conclusions rendered.”
