Dr. Hassan Diab speaking at a press conference on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, April 13, 2012:
“I am innocent of the accusations against me. I have never engaged in terrorism.”
“I am not an anti-Semite. I have always been opposed to bigotry and violence.”
“My life has been turned upside down because of unfounded allegations and suspicions.”
“It would be a grave injustice to extradite me for a crime that even the evidence shows I did not commit.”
The press conference addressed the unjust and unconstitutional decision by Justice Minister Rob Nicholson to surrender Hassan Diab to France, even though the French have not laid charges against him.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
We call upon friends and supporters to write letters to local and national newspapers voicing opposition to unjust extradition.
Short letters (approximately 100 words) have the best chance of being published. Be sure to include your name, postal address, and daytime phone number, and write “letter to the editor” in the subject line.

Please support Hassan now and prevent a travesty of justice!
