Hassan Diab's Lost Decade

The Ottawa professor fought the Extradition Act and lost, but he's not giving up just yet.

In 2008, Hassan Diab's life took a terrifying turn.

France had accused the Ottawa professor of being involved in the 1980 bombing of a Paris synagogue. Diab denied the charges.

He was arrested, and his almost decade-long nightmare had begun.

Diab spoke to HuffPost Canada from his home in Ottawa about his ordeal, his return to Canada and his next steps.
