Why a Fundraiser:
Waiting for the response from the Court of Appeal for Ontario regarding Hassan Diab’s extradition order is difficult for Hassan and his family. They need our support to keep up their spirits! Hassan’s appeal has been expensive and the lawyers’ fees are mounting. In addition, Hassan has to pay about $2,000 per month for the GPS monitoring device he is required to wear, in order to be able to stay out of prison.
Hassan has shown enormous courage and grace in the face of unjust extradition proceedings. Please join us in supporting him on April 11!
