Thank You for Participating in the Phone-in to PM Trudeau

November 29, 2021

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Thanks to everyone who participated in the phone-in on November 25 asking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to honor his words from June 2018 and refuse any future request from France for the extradition of Dr. Hassan Diab. Your support is vital to protecting the rights of people in Canada against unjust prosecution and violation of fundamental rights.

If you haven’t called PM Trudeau yet, please do so. The Prime Minister’s contact information is included below, as well as a sample message in both English and French.

Here is a link to a media advisory about this important action:

Phone Message to PM Justin Trudeau:

“Hello. My name is _____________.

I am calling with an important message to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

I am a supporter of Dr. Hassan Diab, the Canadian who remains in legal limbo as France continues to pursue the prosecution of an innocent man.

Mr. Trudeau, on June 20, 2018 you said: “I think, for Hassan Diab, we have to recognize first of all that what happened to him never should have happened […] and make sure that this never happens again.”

I urge you to publicly declare that Canada will protect Hassan, and refuse any future request from France for his extradition.

The government has a moral obligation to protect Hassan’s basic human rights.

Hassan and his family have suffered long enough!

I look forward to your response. My phone number is _____________.”


Message téléphonique pour PM Justin Trudeau

“Bonjour. Je m’appelle _____________.

Je vous appelle afin de laisser un message pour le premier ministre Justin Trudeau.

J’appuie la cause de Hassan Diab, ce professeur canadien poursuivi à tort par la France, malgré son innocence évidente.

Le 20 juin 2018, M. Trudeau, vous avez affirmé : « Quant à Hassan Diab, nous devons d’emblée reconnaître que ce qui lui est arrivé n’aurait pas dû se produire […] et nous devons nous assurer que cela ne se reproduira plus jamais. »

Je vous exhorte à déclarer publiquement que le Canada protègera M. Diab, un de ses citoyens, et refusera toute demande future de l’extrader vers la France.

Le gouvernement du Canada a l’obligation morale de protéger les droits de M. Diab.

Hassan Diab et sa famille ont déjà trop souffert !

J’espère une réponse positive de votre part. Mon numéro de téléphone est _____________.
