SEATTLE, Wash. - The sister of a Washington man imprisoned in North Korea says his family couldn't believe what Dennis Rodman said about him while on a basketball trip to celebrate the birthday of the North Korean leader.
Terri Chung of Edmonds told KOMO Radio in Seattle Wednesday they were appalled that someone who is in a position to help Kenneth Bae refuses to do so.
Chung says it's clear Rodman "has no idea what he's talking about."
In a CNN interview Tuesday, Rodman said he refused to discuss Bae with North Korean leaders and implied Bae may deserve his punishment.
Bae is a 45-year-old Lynnwood man who was arrested in November 2012 while leading a tour group. He was sentenced to 15 years hard labor for crimes against the state.
