On October 19, 2011, a public lecture about Hassan Diab’s case was held at Carleton University. The speakers were Nathalie Des Rosiers, General Counsel of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA), and Donald Bayne, Hassan’s lawyer.

The event included a discussion of the following topics:
- Why exonerating evidence was not allowed in court
- How Canada’s extradition law is fundamentally unfair
- Why a fair trial in France is unlikely
