Mo Harkat

CUSJ has been a long-time supporter of the five Arab Canadians detained for years without due process of law on government security certificates. At its 2016 AGM, CUSJ passed a resolution calling for a review of the current laws relating to security certificates and the suspension of a deportation order for Mohammed Harkat initiated under the previous government. We also sent a letter to John McCallum, Minister of Immigration, Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety, Jody Wilson- Raybould, Minister of Justice and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, to release Mr. Harkat from all forms of custody and surveillance.

 Expect more activity on the Security Certificate issue–specifically, upgrading of Bill C-51, in 2017.

Hassan Diab

CUSJ passed a resolution and sent letters to the relevant Cabinet Ministers calling on the Canadian government to request the French government guarantee a timely and fair trial to extradited Canadian professor, Dr. Hassan Diab and to bring him home. Ottawa members of CUSJ have worked tirelessly on Dr. Diab’s support team since the beginning of Hassan family’s ordeal.
