Kenneth Bae to Break His Silence About His North Korean Imprisonment

Jonathan Bae
Tucson, AZ, United States

Apr 26, 2016 — For those of you who helped to carry the voice of release for my father successfully to the Obama administration, I wanted to thank you again for your big hearts. Since his Nov '14 release he refused interviews about what happened, but now he's breaking his silence about the experience inside one of the most secretive countries in the world and what life was like thinking about the likelihood of living out his sentence of 15 years of hard labor for anti-government activities. He has been heartbroken that others have also been imprisoned like Canada's Pastor Lim and Otto Warmbier and encourages you to join him in advocating for them as well.

Since you were personally tied to the story I wanted to give you a heads up that he'll be on CBS Network news both in the morning and evening telling his story on May 2 in conjunction with the release of his memoir, Not Forgotten. Other key outlets that helped to raise his profile like CNN will follow as well as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and more. He's not doing this to elevate his profile as he's really a bit uncomfortable with all the attention but hopes that when people hear his side of the story that they'll better understand that country and be inspired by God's faithfulness in our darkest hours. I hope you'll be able to watch and hear that he still has a deep love for the people of North Korea. You can track more about this on

Thank you and please offer your support to other political prisoners around the world.
