The ICLMG among groups fighting for rights of Canadian professor Hassan Diab

The International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group (ICLMG) is a national, non-partisan, independent coalition of Canadian organizations (NGOs, unions, professional associations, faith groups, environmental organizations, human rights and civil liberties advocates), including the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) (https://bulletin-archives.caut.ca/bulletin/articles/2003/03/caut-joins-international-civil-liberties-monitoring-group). The ICLMG (http://www.iclmg.ca) fights to defend the civil liberties and human rights laid out in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and international human rights instruments. They do not accept government funding of any type.

The ICLMG spoke about their work at the CAUT Council Meeting in April in Ottawa. An example of their advocacy includes the case of Canadian sociology professor Dr. Hassan Diab (http://www.justiceforhassandiab.org/), who was unjustly incarcerated in Canada, then extradited to France where he was imprisoned in solitary confinement for over three years. Having returned to Canada in January, Dr. Diab could still face extradition. Dr. Diab also spoke at the CAUT Council meeting about his ordeal. CAUT is among other organizations urging the Canadian government to open a public inquiry into the treatment of Hassan Diab (https://www.caut.ca/latest/2018/05/caut-urges-public-inquiry-treatment-hassan-diab).
