The British Columbia Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) wrote a letter the Minister of Foreign Affairs, The Honourable Stéphane Dion, and the Minister of Justice,
The Honorable Jody Wilson-Raybould, urging them to intervene in the case of Dr. Hassan Diab.
“[W]e join many other Canadians in writing to you at this time to ask you to raise Dr. Diab’s case with the French authorities at the
earliest possible opportunity. We believe that the use of the deeply flawed and unreliable evidence against Dr. Diab cannot constitute a
fair legal process and that the Government of Canada must act to protect the fundamental rights that are at stake in this matter.”
