15 Years of Injustice: How Much More Must Hassan Diab Endure?

November 13, 2023

Dear friends and supporters,

Today, November 13 2023, marks 15 years since Dr. Hassan Diab was arrested by the RCMP at the request of France. Since that day, Hassan and his family have yet to experience lasting justice and true freedom.

After his arrest in Canada in 2008, Hassan was jailed in Ottawa, subjected to an extradition hearing, and extradited to France in November 2014, where he spent over three years in near solitary confinement. He was released from prison and returned to Canada in January 2018 after two French investigative judges, who thoroughly investigated the case, dismissed all the allegations against him. However, due to political pressure, the he was subjected him to a sham trial in absentia in April of this year. The politicised French court declared Hassan guilty and issued a warrant for his arrest. Since then, Dr. Diab and his family have lived in fear that he will be extradited once again for a crime he did not commit.

On this shameful 15th anniversary, we ask supporters to urge the government of Canada to DECLARE THAT HASSAN DIAB WILL NOT BE EXTRADITED A SECOND TIME.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Send a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau urging him to give immediate assurances that Canada will not accept nor accede to a second extradition request and reform Canada’s extradition law.
