Canada's Shamefully Flawed Extradition Process
Why is France So Determined to prosecute Prof. Hassan Diab after all these years on virtually no evidence? And why has Canada been so willing to comply?

Message from Justice for Hassan Diab received yesterday:
Miscarriage of justice and flawed extradition process ongoing issues in Hassan Diab’s case
As you recall, Dr. Hassan Diab returned to Canada in January 2018 after enduring more than three years without charge in a French prison, mostly in solitary confinement. Despite evidence of Hassan’s innocence, the French prosecutor filed an appeal with the Court of Appeal in France asking that Hassan be put on trial.
The French Court of Appeal postponed its decision regarding whether to refer Hassan’s case to trial in France or dismiss the case. Rather, the Court of Appeal ordered a review of the French handwriting analysis report (“Bisotti’s report”) which was subjected to strong criticism by leading handwriting analysis experts during Hassan’s extradition hearing in Canada a decade ago. Notwithstanding these criticisms, Hassan was extradited to France in 2014, almost entirely on the basis of the deeply flawed Bisotti’s report.
Following the review ordered by the French Court of Appeal, two new French handwriting analysis experts delivered a scathing critique and rebuke of Bisotti’s report that mirror the critique by the defence during the extradition hearing. The French Court of Appeal is expected to render a decision regarding Dr. Diab’s case on January 27, 2021.
Essentially, there are two options for the Court of Appeal judge: uphold the prosecutor’s appeal and send Hassan to trial for a crime he did not commit, or deny the appeal and confirm Hassan’s innocence. Either way, the fundamental miscarriage of justice and the radically flawed extradition process remain ongoing issues to be addressed.
