The curious case of Hassan Diab

The more I delved into this case, the more I realized that, in truth, anyone could be the next Hassan Diab.

Despite Nicholson’s decision, many Canadians believe that Diab is innocent and has been wrongly accused. A group of these Canadians have become so passionate about the case that they created an organization called Justice for Hassan Diab, and have raised money through crowdfunding on Indiegogo to create a documentary to spread the word about Diab’s story.
