Petition E-1674 (Hassan Diab)

August 16, 2018

E-PETITION: Dr. Hassan Diab, a former sociology professor at Carleton University and University of Ottawa was held without charge in solitary confinement by a foreign government on unfounded speculations. Even when our government had evidence that could have easily acquitted him, they withheld this information, preferring to let him languish in solitary confinement for years.

Dr. Diab’s ordeal is further evidence of the Canadian government’s failure to defend its own citizens and academics from racial profiling from foreign governments. The Federation stands against injustice in all forms and encourages students to sign this petition to demand that Canada reforms its extradition act.
