Abdul Rahman is the Afghani who converted to Christianity years ago while working with an aide ministry helping Afghani refugees in Pakistan. When he returned to Afghanistan and tried to get his daughters back, his family reported him for being an apostate. He was arrested, a Bible was found in his possession, and he has maintained his willingness to die rather than to convert back.
CBC.ca is carrying an article reporting that the case against him was dismissed for lack of evidence. Since it's based on the report of an anonymous official it may not be true. Previously, an Afghani supreme court judge had been quoted being quite firm about the necessary outcome and maintaining that Afghani government officials had no right to interfere with the judiciary.
