Hassan Diab bail hearing begins
Hassan Diab, the Ottawa university lecturer accused of a terrorist bombing at a French synagogue in 1980, appeared in court on Elgin Street on Wednesday for a second bail hearing.
A publication ban prevents reporting on the details of testimony in the hearing, which is to continue today.
In December, a Superior Court judge found that Diab posed a “significant risk of flight” if released from jail and denied him bail. That decision was quashed by an Ontario Court of Appeal judge on the basis that the proceedings breached Diab’s Charter language rights because prosecution documents from French authorities had not been translated into English.
