Meanwhile, from the war-on-terror file
Are Canadians shocked to discover that their own government actively tried to get Carleton professor Hassan Diab extradited, and convicted, for a crime he didn’t commit? I certainly am.
The synagogue bombing in France in 1980 for which Diab was arrested was a horrendous crime. It’s no wonder France wanted to find and convict the perpetrator. But they apparently didn’t care if the man they got was guilty or innocent – and neither did the Canadian government.
If the present government does not fix our extradition law, it will happen again.
Diab is not asking for money for his ordeal. He says it is meaningless compared to the joy of being with his children.
