The National

Canada's role in an innocent man's imprisonment is the focus of an exclusive report by CBC News, who obtained documents revealing the efforts made behind the scenes to ensure the extradition of Hassan Diab. The Ottawa university professor spent more than three years in a French prison while being investigated for terrorism charges that were later dropped. A confidential memo obtained by CBC News suggest that Diab, a Canadian citizen, never would have been extradited if not for the efforts of a specialized division of Canada’s Department of Justice known as the International Assistance Group.
