Hassan Diab, a former professor at the University of Ottawa, is currently imprisoned in Fleury-Merogis prison in France facing terrorism charges. Extradited to France in November of 2014, the case against Diab is built on shoddy evidence that would almost definitely not result in his conviction in the Canadian judicial system, the judge who oversaw his case has asserted.
