Ottawa Citizen Editorial:
“Trudeau must speak out on Hassan Diab”

“Justin Trudeau once proclaimed that ‘A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian.’ But if the Canadian’s name is Hassan Diab, the government would prefer not to speak up. That’s no longer good enough…

“Amnesty, which believes his detention contravenes human rights norms, has written to Trudeau, Freeland and Justice Minister Jody Wilson­Raybould asking them to try to secure Diab’s release on bail…

“[T]he legal evidence that he committed one seems to be slowly unravelling and the time being taken by the French to figure things out is unconscionable…

“Canada can do better than maintain a shy silence. Trudeau must insist on concrete action one way or another from France. In democratic countries, we don’t hold people in jail indefinitely without trial or freedom.”
