Hassan Diab is a Canadian sociology professor who has taught at Carleton University and the University of Ottawa. He was wrongfully extradited from Canada to France in 2014 for his alleged involvement in a bombing outside a Paris synagogue in 1980.

After spending over three years in a French prison, two French investigative magistrates found no evidence to send him to trial and released him unconditionally. Dr. Diab returned to his home in Canada in 2018. However, the French prosecutor appealed his release and, on April 21, 2023, Dr. Diab was sentenced in absentia to life in prison.

With this devastating development, it is urgent that we raise awareness about Hassan’s case and protect him from another wrongful extradition to France and life imprisonment for a crime he did not commit.

Please distribute widely!
