French court orders suspect in 1980 synagogue bombing back to jail

JPost Reports-

A French court of appeals ordered the re-incarceration of a terror suspect who had been released to house arrest while standing trial for the killing of four Jews in 1980.

The Paris Court of Appeals on Tuesday upheld the prosecutors’ appeal against the May 12 release of Hassan Diab, a Lebanon-born university lecturer in Canada who was extradited to France to stand trial for a synagogue bombing in Paris, Le Monde  reported on Wednesday.

French authorities allege that Diab was a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and took part in the synagogue bombing.

The ruling overturns a lower court’s decision finding “doubt on the fundamental question” of whether Hassan Diab was in France when a bomb went off on Oct. 3, 1980 outside the ULIF synagogue on Copernic Street, AFP reported.
