Dear Friends and Supporters,
As you know, since Hassan Diab’s release from detention in France in 2018, we (with your support) have repeatedly called for a public inquiry into Hassan’s case and a serious reform of Canada’s extradition law so that no other Canadian would go through what Hassan and his family have suffered over the past decade; however, our requests were completely ignored.
Faced with no other choice to get justice, accountability, and reform, Hassan and his family have launched a civil claim against the government of Canada. Hassan and his legal team will be holding a press conference on Friday, February 7, at 10:00 am Eastern to address the civil claim.
The International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group (ICLMG) will be live-streaming the press conference. To watch, please visit:
The video will appear at the above Facebook page as soon as we start live-streaming.
