The French Court of Appeal has rejected the application to have crucial handwriting and intelligence evidence removed from case.

Handwriting evidence is central in the Hassan Diab trial expected in France during 2016.  The trial relates to a fatal bombing outside a Paris synagogue in 1980.  

We will follow the proceedings with great interest, given the contention that the handwriting evidence is 'unreliable' and the examiner 'incompotent'.  The legal systems in both France and Canada have dealt with aspects of this over a number of years, providing an insight to the judicial requirements in each country.
