Joshua Boyle faces 15 criminal charges, including eight counts of assault

Rebel Staff

Joshua Boyle has been charged with a long list of criminal offences in an Ottawa court.

Boyle, 34, the Canadian man who was held in captivity by the Taliban-affiliated Haqqani network in Afghanistan for five years with his American wife, Caitlan Coleman, is facing 15 charges in total.

According to a court document, as reported by the Toronto Star on Tuesday, the substantial list includes eight counts of assault, two counts of sexual assault, two unlawful confinement charges, one count of uttering death threats, one count of causing someone to take a noxious substance, and one charge of misleading police. 

In an email to the BBC, Boyle’s lawyer, Eric Granger, said:

“He’s never been in trouble before. No evidence has been provided yet, which is typical at this early stage. We look forward to receiving the evidence and defending him against these charges.”

The alleged offences all reportedly took place in Ottawa between October 14 and December 30, 2017.

Boyle, his wife and their three children — all of whom were born in Afghanistan in captivity — were rescued in a raid by Pakistani soldiers and returned to Canada on October 13.

Boyle and his wife, who was reportedly pregnant at the time, were kidnapped during a "backpacking" trip to Afghanistan in 2012.

In December, the Boyle family met with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The Prime Minister’s Office confirmed to CTV News that a meeting had taken place, stating:

“The Prime Minister did meet with the Boyles [and] we are relieved that their terrible ordeal is over and they are back home safely.”

“It was a private meeting and we will not say more due to privacy considerations and out of respect for the family.”

Photographs of the meeting were posted to a Twitter account named "The Boyle Family."

Gordon Carpenter, yes it is very interesting… the pastor is Christian; therefore in Trudeau’s mind, not welcome to sit in his office and take selfies.

Yeah. It is very interesting that Trudeau will meet with a 34 year old alleged criminal who converted to Islam and spent time in Afghanistan but totally ignore a 60 year old Korean-Canadian Christian pastor that was incarcerated in a North Korean prison for I believe over 2 years with hard labor to boot for helping to provide aid to orphanages. “Hey Trudeau, what’s that about!”

Sigh, obvious add on… But NOT in any journalism school in Canada these days…

That’s the point isn’t it?… This story “stinks” from day one but don’t hold your breath waiting for somebody from the mainstream media even trying to get to the bottom of it… Indeed, in its day in the 70s, it could have been the basis of a whole semester of the first year course in investigative journalism in any journalism school…

If it smells like sh_t . tastes like sh_t, it’s more than likely sh_t. And the Clown Prince of the Lieberal Party , Justin Mohammed Trudeau will be trying his level best to cover it all up for his Muzzie buddy.

Allah Snakbar , my ass!!!!!!!!!!!

The Right Honorable Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, is sure to intervene on his Good Friends behalf.

PMO should’ve known about Boyle, says former top cop…”

True that, TAMMIE. And even if there wasn’t an ongoing investigation, as many commenters have here noted, the entire Boyle story stank to high heaven from the start. That turdo la doo and his baby-sitters didn’t pick up on that while ordinary folks did, is further proof of the little tit’s lack of common sense and his estrangement from the middle class he pretends to identify with.

Stand by for Frank to tell us how stupid we are for thinking Spudsy Malone won’t get a second term. After all Canadians are very happy with him. If this is truly the case then the saying true- people get the government they deserve. Vote on Canadian Sheeple.

You are the husband and your unborn perfectly healthy baby that your wife is carrying has a forced abortion. Baby killed by the very people who kidnapped you. And you decide to have three more children while in captivity? Let that sink in.

How F’n stupid does this Boyle goof think we are? And Trudeau, how F’n stupid? (Well there are the Liberal sheep I guess)

Nice picture for Trudeau’s family photo album though. Trudeau can put that photo right next to the ones which show excited bare chested young women swarming him during pretty parades.

Trudeau exhibits the poorest judgement of anyone I know, let alone a Prime Minister. Outrageous.

Trudeau is a no show for a very important Trade meeting but makes sure he finds time to meet with Boyle. Incredible.

Ron,

Trudeau is as much a Muslim as Boyle is, so Dick Tater had nothing to fear from Boyle.

Ron, I saw that comment and chuckled! I will go back to the article this evening just to read the additional comments since I last checked them out at noon.

Tammie one of the comments made on Fury’s article that resonated with me was a picture showing the striped socks of a clown and his hands tying up the laces to his massive clown shoes with the caption, “Before you judge Justin Trudeau…walk a mile in his shoes”.

James Scott—said “either the PMO Security Personal are not communicating with the RCMP/CSIS, or they were asked to stand down.”

James, there is a possibility that the RCMP/CSIS want Trudeau gone as much as the Informed Public, so they didn’t care if our PM had a private meeting with a possible Terrorist.

DISGUSTING AND JUSTIN AND THE LIBERAL PARTY SUPPORT THESE TERRORIST..

What is it going to take for Canadians to wake up ? Seriously what is wrong with us !
Fuck Trudeau !

Fortunately for Canadians the Boyle Family Tweeted this photo.

So tell me.
Either the PMO Security Personnel are not communicating with the RCMP/CSIS
or they were asked to stand down when our illustrious PM requested a meeting with the Boyles on Dec. 19.
Because NO security detail with a brain would permit this meeting from taking place if they were aware a file had been opened on this guy. And don’t tell me a file hadn’t been opened. He was arrested Dec.30 and charged with crimes beginning the day this goof arrived in Canada.
This story just gets stinkier by the day.
At the very least this is another clear example of the most poorest judgement of our PM.
Bet Trudeau crapped his drawers (or maybe not) when some details of the meeting at the PMO were posted on the Boyle Family twitter account.

Not a word about the ISIS enemy combatants walking free as birds when a prima facie case exists for their arrest under Section 83 CC…

It can not be any more obvious we are living in a lawless state run by fascists, Globalists and jihadis.
A spade is a spade by any other name.

Lord alone knows what these criminals are up to and we hear nothing from our CPC leader Scheer.
Scheer is a complete joke and plays the part of The Invisible Man better than Claude Rains.

Sorry I was out of commission a few days guys. If I don’t go cold turkey on Trudeau every few weeks I start to lose my marbles. This clown is actually affecting my health.

Thanks to mega-taxing by generations of Liberals I can no longer afford 2 week vacations to warmer climates. So I stay put and watch the old stuff – you know, when men were Men, not trans this or that.

Just enjoyed a heavy dose of Steve McQueen movies and Kojak reruns. I’m better now.

Boyle and Trudeau: two of a kind.

Just what are these two clowns doing in the office of former Prime Ministers Pearson, Diefenbaker and Mackenzie King? Honestly I want to puke.

Posted photos for a “private” meeting. Yea. Right.

Baby Doc just can’t keep from stepping in it. He is like a factory reject lightbulb: no filament to illuminate the room, except in his case he is missing an intelligent mind.

Justin seems to be in pictures with sex offenders right before they are charged, like Levin. He has some taste in friends.

Justin and his buddy are both scum.
Ron Joseph could you imagine the difference in reporting if it were Trump or a conservative PM, the BS would be spewed in barrels.

Trudeau is in the process of cutting a 10.5 million dollar cheque to the “victim” Boyle
commented 2018-01-03 01:11:31 -0500
Imagine if it was Trump caught in Trudeau’s position.
The MSM would put as their Headline: TRUMP FOUND TO BE SPY FOR THE TALIBAN
Because it is Trudeau and the Media that he controls, there will nothing about it, at least leading to Trudeau.
Resign Scheer, you have all this opportunity and do nothing to take advantage of it.
