OTTAWA-Joshua Boyle, the former hostage in Afghanistan and Pakistan who is charged with sexual assault, unlawful confinement and other offences, briefly appeared in court Wednesday morning. He is expected to appear in court on January 3.

Sources close to the family claim that Boyle told them of at least one forced abortion Coleman had while in captivity.

Boyle, a Canadian, and his American wife, 31-year-old Caitlan Coleman, along with their three young children, were rescued on October 11 by Pakistani troops from captivity in Pakistan and Afghanistan, where they were held by Taliban-linked extremists.

A court order prevents the publication of information that would identify any alleged victims in the case.

When Boyle and his family were released after five years of captivity, American intelligence publicly said they long suspected Boyle entered Afghanistan with the desire to hook up with "Taliban-affiliated militants".

While they were hostages, Caitlan Boyle miscarried their first child.

Before the matter was adjourned, Boxall was told Boyle has retained high-profile Ottawa criminal lawyer Lawrence Greenspon as part of his defence team, although Greenspon was not in court. "No evidence has been provided yet, which is typical at this early stage", Granger said.

Boyle's lawyer Eric Granger has pleaded his client's total and absolute innocence. "He has never been in trouble with the law".

A sign attached to the door of the Boyle apartment in Ottawa said family members would not be speaking to the media and requested privacy.

"Obviously, he is responsible for his own actions", she wrote in her statement, "but it is with compassion and forgiveness that I say I hope help and healing can be found for him". He told reporters that the Haqqani group had authorized the murder of one of the couple's children and had brutally raped Coleman, and asked the Afghan government to bring his kidnappers to justice.

I can certainly say that we're pleased that the ordeal they've been through over these past years has finally come to an end.

USA officials said Mr Boyle and his family spent nearly all of their five years of confinement in neighbouring Pakistan, which is where they were freed by Pakistani troops.
