Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Regarding Dr. Hassan Diab

The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau
Office of the Prime Minister
80 Wellington Street
Ottawa, ON, K1A 0A2

Dear Prime Minister Trudeau:

We address this Open Letter to you to express our deep concern about the unjust situation of Dr. Hassan Diab, the Canadian citizen extradited and detained in France since November 14, 2014. We urge you to remedy this miscarriage of justice and bring Hassan back to his home in Canada.

Dr. Diab is a sociology professor who taught at Carleton University and the University of Ottawa. He is the father of two young children living in Ottawa. He is sought by France in connection with a bombing near a Paris synagogue in October 1980 that tragically killed four and injured dozens.

The evidence overwhelmingly points to Dr. Diab’s innocence. He has a lifelong record of opposition to all forms of bigotry and violence, as attested by longtime friends, colleagues, and acquaintances. [1] He has consistently denied any involvement in the crime and strongly condemns anti-Semitism, bigotry, and violence. His fingerprints, palm prints, physical description, and handwriting do not match those of the suspect. The Canadian extradition judge described the evidence against Dr. Diab as “convoluted”, “very confusing”, and “suspect”, and stated that “the prospects of conviction in the context of a fair trial seem unlikely”. However, the judge felt obliged under Canada’s extradition law to commit Hassan to extradition. [2]

The case against Hassan is anchored in secret, unsourced intelligence that may be the product of torture. The intelligence was withdrawn from the extradition hearing in Canada in recognition of its extremely problematic nature. However, the intelligence remains in the dossier in France. Human Rights Watch has documented the use of secret intelligence and unfair trials under France’s anti-terrorism laws. [3]

Robert J. Currie, Professor of Law at Dalhousie University, wrote in the Ottawa Citizen that “Hassan Diab should be repatriated and our extradition law should be reformed”. He pointed out that Hassan’s “situation is a direct, even logical, result of the current state of Canadian extradition law. Specifically, our law prevents individuals sought for extradition from making any meaningful challenge to a foreign state’s extradition request on the basis that the requesting state does not have sufficiently reliable evidence.” [4]

In the last two years, French judges in charge of Dr. Diab’s case have conducted investigations and interviewed several witnesses. They established that Dr. Diab was not in France in October 1980, and stated that there is “consistent evidence” supporting his innocence. Dr. Diab has been ordered released on bail eight times. But each time the French Court of Appeal overturned the release order at the prosecutor’s behest. French lawyers have called Hassan’s situation “unprecedented”, and remarked that the Court is clinging to Hassan so as not to be accused of “laxity in the context of today’s fight against terrorism in France”. [5]

Dr. Diab has spent the last nine years of his life either in jail or under very strict bail conditions in Canada. The continued detention of Dr. Hassan Diab in a prison cell for 20 hours a day – even while investigating judges have called for his release several times – recalls the frustrations of other Canadians wrongfully held overseas, such as journalist and author Mohamed Fahmy. In August 2015, while in opposition, you issued a powerful statement about Mr. Fahmy’s detention in Egypt, saying that then Prime Minister Stephen Harper “has an obligation to use the full force of the Prime Minister’s Office to help Canadian citizens when they are unjustly imprisoned abroad. His inaction must end today.” [6]

Mr. Fahmy himself wrote in the May 23 Toronto Star about the “painful reality haunting Diab and his family every day”, and compared Dr. Diab’s predicament to his saying that you could “intervene directly with France’s new leadership to bring Diab home”. [7]

Faisal Kutty, an adjunct professor at Osgoode Hall Law School, wrote in the May 4 Toronto Star that Dr. Diab’s prosecution is a “travesty”, adding “Prime Minister Trudeau in the past had called on the Harper government to intervene in such situations. Indeed, Trudeau has spoken out in the past in defence of citizens. Diab’s case is ripe for such an intervention.” [8]

We add our voices to the thousands of Canadians and numerous civil society and human rights organisations across Canada that are calling for the Canadian government to intervene in Dr. Diab’s case. These voices include Amnesty International, the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA), the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA), the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT), and many others. [9], [10]

Alex Neve, Secretary General of Amnesty International Canada stated “this is the time for the Canadian government to stand up for one of its citizens.” [11] Bernie Farber, human rights activist and former Canadian Jewish Congress Director, and Mira Sucharov, Associate Professor of Political Science at Carleton University, wrote that “it is clear that Hassan Diab is not receiving justice by Canadian standards. This must change.” [12] Michael Enright, journalist and host of CBC’s The Sunday Edition, asked “why has the Canadian government not vigorously pressed for Professor Diab’s release given that the only evidence at the extradition hearing was dubious at best?” [13] Hassan’s Canadian lawyer, Donald Bayne, one of this nation’s most respected attorneys, calls Hassan’s predicament “the classic recipe for the wrongful conviction of a Canadian citizen.” [14]

Prime Minister Trudeau, we urge you to prevent Dr. Hassan Diab’s wrongful conviction and use the full force of your office to help Hassan – a Canadian citizen unjustly imprisoned abroad – return to his home in Canada.

Dr. Diab’s Kafkaesque predicament stems from the actions of a previous government. Those actions cannot be undone. However, your government has the power to ultimately mitigate and bring an end to the harm and suffering that an innocent Canadian and his family continue to experience on a daily basis.
