We have launched an e-petition calling upon the Government of Canada to work towards the immediate granting of bail to Dr. Hassan Diab and securing his urgent return to his family and home in Canada.
If you are a Canadian citizen or resident of Canada, please sign the e-petition as this would send a strong message that Canadians care and want their government to act. Only the Clerk of Petitions at Parliament would have access to your information. Your personal information will not be made public.
Hassan was extradited from Canada to France more than two years ago. Since then, he has been ordered released on bail four times by two different French judges. The French investigative judge found that there is “consistent evidence” that Hassan is innocent. However, each time the prosecutor has appealed and the same court of appeal judges has overturned Hassan’s release because of the political climate in France. Hassan has been on very strict bail conditions or imprisoned for over eight years despite documented evidence showing that he is innocent.
Please share this e-petitiont widely and help us get the Canadian government to intervene to put an end to the plight of Hassan and his family!
