Fake Terrorist Accusations against University of Ottawa Prof. Hassan Diab. Bring Him Back to Canada

Dear Friends,

As you know, it is a crucial time in Dr. Hassan Diab’s case. Two French investigative judges have ordered Hassan’s release on bail for the sixth time because of “consistent evidence” that Hassan was in Lebanon at the time of the 1980 bombing. This encouraging news has not turned into getting Hassan back to Canada, not even out on bail. All previous release orders have been appealed by the French prosecutor and overturned by the Court of Appeal because of the political climate in France. The hearing of the new appeal is this Friday afternoon.

We are holding a press conference on Parliament Hill in Ottawa today, Thursday April 27, at 11:00 am Eastern, regarding the continued detention of Hassan Diab. You can watch a live-stream of the press conference on the International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group (ICLMG) Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com /iclmg.csilc


We feel that enormous pressure needs be put on the Canadian Government to urge them to take action and bring Hassan home.

Therefore, please, can you send a message to the Canadian Ministers of Justice and Foreign Affairs?

It might be that you wrote already; however, another reminder will only underline the urgency of your message. Your letter does not have to be long! What counts is the number of letters from Canadians who show that they are concerned about the continued detention of an innocent man, and who want the Government to ACT.

Our message is clear:  We urge the Ministers to raise Hassan’s case with the French authorities. Hassan must be released from prison as soon as possible and allowed to return to his home and family in Canada.

At the very least, Hassan must be released on bail as the French investigative judges have ordered.

If you want to touch on one or two facts/issues, please see the sample letter:

Please, send your letter to the following persons:

Finally, if you have not yet done so, please sign our Parliamentary e-petition to urge the Canadian Government to intervene to bring Hassan home: https://petitions.parl.g c.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petit ion=e-833

With much appreciation and warm regards,

Hassan Diab Support Committee
