Presentation by Don Pratt

Presentation by Roger Clark

Presentation by Michelle Weinroth

On January 28, 2024, an online (Zoom) webinar was held to mark the 6th anniversary of Dr. Hassan Diab‘s unconditional release from a French prison in January of 2018.

Hassan Diab is a Canadian sociology professor wrongfully accused and declared guilty of a bombing near a Paris synagogue in 1980. Dr. Diab was fully exonerated and returned unconditionally to Canada in January 2018, after two French investigative judges determined that there was no evidence linking him to the bombing. However, due to political pressure, French prosecutor appealed his release, and despite a wealth of evidence exonerating Hassan, he was declared guilty by the Special Court of Assize in Paris in April 2023.

Webinar speakers were:

  • Hassan Diab, a Canadian citizen and sociology professor who lives in Ottawa.
  • Don Pratt, founding member of the Hassan Diab Support Committee.
  • Roger Clark, former Secretary General of the Canadian Section of Amnesty International.
  • Michelle Weinroth, writer and teacher living in Ottawa.
