Prof. Diab will focus on the repercussions of the little known oppressive Canadian Extradition Law. He will talk about the absence of any legal protection (due process included) against that “rubber stamp Law” and provide his view of the dire price that anyone accused would pay.
Currently, Hassan Diab is a part-time sociology professor at Carleton University. He did his undergraduate studies at Lebanese University in Beirut, and received his Ph.D. in sociology at Syracuse University in New York. He has taught in many universities in the Middle East and North America. He was teaching at Ottawa U and Carleton U when he was arrested in 2008 and spent the following decade either under house arrest or in Canadian and French jails. He was finally released from France’s largest jail in 2018. Since that time he has been fighting for two things: a transparent public inquiry to what happened to him so it doesn’t happen to others; and a significant and meaningful change in the “lousy” Canadian Extradition Act.
