Dear friends and supporters,
Dr. Hassan Diab’s nightmare is not over. He and his family continue to suffer injustice and uncertainty after more than 14 years of fighting baseless allegations.
A trial in France — in April 2023 — is looming and we fear it won’t be fair. Unbelievably, Hassan is in grave danger of being wrongfully convicted, and thus extradited from Canada to France a second time. This is despite overwhelming evidence of his innocence!
1. Watch the New 12-Minute Video about Hassan’s Case
VIDEO: “Imagine a Life Like This: The Relentless Persecution of Hassan Diab”
Edited by Merna Emara, Produced by Natali Trivuncic, and Narrated by Roger Clark
The video highlights the injustices Hassan has faced for more than 14 years, and why there is no justification for a trial.

3. Sign the Petition to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau must honor his words from June 2018 and refuse any future request from France for the extradition of Hassan Diab. Your support is vital to protecting the rights of people in Canada against unjust prosecution and violation of fundamental rights.
We would like to reach at least 10,000 signatures on the petition before delivering it to PM Trudeau. Please sign the petition, if you haven’t done so already, and share it with at least 5 people you know. We need a groundswell of support to protect Hassan from a second wrongful extradition!
