Imminent Decision in Hassan Diab's Case - Please Consider Signing Letter


Begin forwarded message:


Dear all,

As you may be aware, the Supreme Court of Canada will issue its decision regarding whether or not to hear the appeal in Hassan Diab's case this Thursday, November 13th. 

If leave is granted, the case would be heard by the Supreme Court sometime in 2015. If leave is not granted, the government would remove Hassan from Canada to France where he would spend years in pretrial detention before facing trial based on a handwriting analysis report that was discredited and condemned by five world-renowned handwriting experts. 

The following letter was drafted by professors at Carleton University. We are collecting signatures on the letter and plan to submit it as an Op-Ed to a newspaper in the next couple of days. We also plan to send the letter (and list of signatures) to the Canadian Minister of Justice and Members of Parliament.


Please consider signing the above letter by Wednesday, November 12th at the latest and help us circulate it among others you know. You can enter your name and affiliation directly at the bottom of the above page. 

Here is a link to factums that were filed by Hassan's lawyers regarding the leave to appeal application.



Best regards,

Hassan Diab Support Committee
