Letter to the Editor
Ottawa Citizen, April 10, 2012
Re: 'We expected this decision, but not this way,' April 6.
I've followed the Hassan Diab case closely and am shocked that Minister Rob Nicholson signed the
extradition order in the light of such flimsy, if not non-existent, evidence.
Of particular concern to me is the fact that Diab has not been allowed to present evidence that clearly
shows he is not the man they are after, particularly the fact that his palm and thumb prints do not
match those taken from the crime scene. Even worse, it has come to light that Diab is only wanted for
questioning. Let the French authorities come here and ask their questions. Canada does not
extradite for questioning, only for trial.
