Default The Joshua Boyle story

Fishy
Quote:
Boyle, of Canada, his American wife Caitlan, and their three children were rescued last October in Pakistan, five years after the couple was abducted by a Taliban-linked militant group while on a backpacking trip in neighboring Afghanistan.

The children - 2- and 4-year-old boys and an infant daughter - were all born in captivity.

Authorities said the charges against the 34-year-old include eight counts of assault, two accounts of sexual assault and two counts of unlawful confinement.

Boyle was reportedly charged with one count of causing someone to 'take a noxious thing, namely Trazodone,' an antidepressant, court documents indicated Tuesday.

There is also a charge of uttering a death threat and a charge of misleading a police officer.

The purported acts allegedly occurred between October 14 - the day after the family returned to Canada - and December 30.

The misleading the police charge stems from an incident on December 30 where Boyle called police to report someone being suicidal and missing. He allegedly concocted the story to 'divert suspicion from himself'.

A publication ban bars reporting any information that could identify the alleged victims, of which there are two.



Boyle was once briefly married to Zaynab Khadr, the older sister of former Guantanamo Bay detainee Omar Khadr and the daughter of a senior al-Qaida financier who had contacts with Osama bin Laden.

The Canadian-born Omar Khadr was 15 when he was captured by US troops following a firefight and was taken to the US detention center at Guantanamo Bay.

Officials had discounted any link between that background and Boyle's capture, with one describing it in 2014 as a 'horrible coincidence'.

Boyle and his family met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the leader's office last month.
