Dear Friends and Supporters,
Please check out the International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group (ICLMG) webcomic about Dr. Hassan Diab’s quest for justice.
At the end of the webcomic, you’ll be able to send a message to your Canadian Member of Parliament, asking that he/she support a public inquiry into Hassan’s extradition case.
Hassan is thankfully free and back in Canada, but justice hasn’t been served. Hassan deserves answers and we need to change Canada’s broken extradition law so no one else suffers as he did!
Hassan was wrongfully extradited to France in 2014, based on illogical, problematic, and confusing evidence. He spent more than three years in prison in France, without charge or trial, often in solitary confinement. In 2018, French investigating judges ordered Hassan’s release after they found there is consistent evidence that he was not in France at the time of the 1980 bombing in Paris.
A recent “external review” of Hassan’s extradition, commissioned by the Minister of Justice, has amounted to a whitewash. It presents only weak recommendations that will do nothing to prevent future injustices like those suffered by Hassan.
Please check out the ICLMG webcomic, send a message to your Member of Parliament, and share the webcomic with your family of friends.
Thank you for your continued support!
Hassan Diab Support Committee
