Freed Taliban captive charged with 15 offenses

Freed Taliban captive charged with 15 offenses

He is expected to appear in court on January 3.

"We are greatly relieved that after being held hostage for five years, Joshua Boyle and his wife Caitlan Coleman, as well as their young children, have been released and are safe", Freeland said in the release.

Boyle and his American-born wife, Caitlan Coleman, were taken hostage in 2012 by a Taliban-related group while traveling in Afghanistan. A publication ban on information that could identify any alleged victims is now in place, according to the BBC. Boyle's attorney told CNN the charges were accurate as reported.

Pakistani security forces rescued Boyle; his 32-year-old wife, Caitlan Coleman Boyle; and their three children October 11.

On Wednesday, he appeared in court for a few minutes by video in an orange jumpsuit and was told that his next court appearance would be early next week, in order to allow his lawyers to put together a bail plan.

According to the paper, Coleman said her husband is responsible for his own actions, but "ultimately it is the strain and trauma he was forced to endure for so many years and the effects that that had on his mental state that is most culpable for this".

Eric Granger, one of Boyle's lawyers, stressed to this paper that the accused is presumed innocent of all of the charges against him.

Upon the family's return to Canada, Boyle alleged that their captors raped his wife and caused her to miscarry a baby girl.

They were freed by Pakistani forces, who used USA intelligence to plan the mission, and their release garnered worldwide attention.

The charges, filed on Monday, are for crimes prosecutors said occurred in Canada after Mr Boyle and his family returned to the country last October. "As Mr. Boyle has only just been charged, we are waiting to receive more information (disclosure) about these allegations so that we can respond to them appropriately in court", the statement reads. The Pakistanis caught the Haqqani fighters at some point after they had moved with their captives across the border from Afghanistan. She noted that she and their children were "healthy and holding up as well as we can".

The grainy photos - likely taken on a cellphone - show Boyle, Coleman and their three children meeting with the prime minister.
