Imprisoned Korean American Kenneth Bae who is serving 15 years of hard labor has called his family and urged them to plead to Washington to push for his amnesty, reports ABC.

According to section chief of the North Korea Academy of Social Sciences Institution of Law, Bae also told his family he is unable to appeal the sentence handed down April 30.

North Korea has so far not allowed Bae to make a public statement, but the communist government say the Washington state man is guilty of trying to establish an anti-government base in Pyongyang.

North Korea has denied it is using Bae as a bargaining chip to win diplomatic concessions from the United States.
