Two videos have surfaced that shed more light into the arrest of Kenneth Bae, the Korean American serving 15 years of hard labor in a special prison in North Korea, reports CP World.
Up to now, the socialist regime has not released too many details about Bae’s arrest last November. They will only say that Bae, who is from Washington state, is serving time for crimes against the government.
In the videos, Bae urges people to pray to break down the divisions between North Korea and the rest of the world.
“We have a new project called ‘Operation Jericho.’ Just as God made people enter Jericho and collapse it without force, I hope the wall between us will collapse soon, through just our praying and worship in the Rason area,” Bae said.
The Washington Post reports Bae’s sermon is somehow connected to the charges brought against him.
The Post also reports Bae is accused to trying to establish a base of anti-government activity from his hotel.
He’s also suspected of smuggling anti-government literature into North Korea including a 2007 National Geographic documentary.
Meanwhile Bae’s family hopes for Kenneth’s freedom.
“We just pray and ask for leaders of both nations to please, just see him as one man, caught in between,” Bae’s sister Terri Chung said. “He’s a father to three children and we just ask that he be allowed to come home.”
