Afghan Christian mentally unfit?

I have been following with some interest the news of an Afghan Christian on trial for his faith and wondering what will come of it. After all Canadian troops are committed to -peacekeeping-… peacemaking in this predominantly Islamic country. Today I was intrigued to read this CBC Headline, “Afghan prosecutors say Christian convert may be unfit to stand trial: report”.
bq. Afghan prosecutors say a 41-year-old man facing the death penalty for rejecting Islam and converting to Christianity may be mentally unfit to stand trial, according to a report.
bq. “We think he could be mad. He is not a normal person. He doesn’t talk like a normal person,” prosecutor Sarinwal Zamari told the Associated Press.
I wonder if this is just a politically expedient way out of a sticky problem for a country that wants -Canada’s- the world’s continued help.
