Ottawa academic Hassan Diab was extradited to France 8 years ago to face terrorism charges. He spent 3 years in solitary confinement before French magistrates ruled that there wasn’t enough evidence for a trial and released him. Last year, France’s court of appeal overturned that decision. Now the French court has set a trial date for next year. We hear reaction from Tim McSorley of the International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group; Jo Wood of the Hassan Diab Support Committee; Alex Neve, formerly of Amnesty Canada, and Rob Currie of Dalhousie University.
