Urgent Action: Phone Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on October 17, 2023

Please phone PM Trudeau to urge him to protect Dr. Hassan Diab and refuse any request from France for Hassan’s extradition!

Prime Minister Trudeau’s Phone Numbers:

  • Hill Office – House of Commons: 1 (613) 992-4211
  • Constituency Office – Riding of Papineau, Montreal, Quebec (call this number if you live in the riding): 1 (514) 277-6020

Key messages for Prime Minister Trudeau:

  • Protect Hassan Diab from further injustice. Say No to any request for Hassan’s extradition.
  • I am very concerned that France is scapegoating Hassan Diab for a crime he did not commit.
  • France has convicted the wrong person—and they know it.
  • The Canadian government has a moral obligation to protect its citizens from persecution.
  • Hassan and his family have suffered this injustice for 15 years.
  • Mr. Trudeau, numerous civil society and human rights organizations have called on you to say No to a second extradition request from France.
  • Mr. Trudeau, honour the words you spoke in 2018: “What happened to Hassan Diab never should have happened”, and make sure that it never happens again.
  • Two experienced French investigative judges (Herbaut and Foltzer) carried out an extensive investigation and determined that the case should not go to trial.
  • The French court which convicted Hassan Diab in April 2023, used secret intelligence as evidence. Relying on secret intelligence is unconstitutional and not allowed in Canadian court; it violates the right to know the case against you and the right to a fair trial.

Thank you for your support!
