Former N.M. Governor not allowed to meet with North Korean prisoner
PYONGYANG, NORTH KOREA — Former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson and Google Executive Eric Schmidt failed to get an American citizen who is being held in North Korea released.
The two have been trying to help the Korean American get out of jail in North Korea, but it turns out North Korea would not let them meet.
They were told the prisoner is in good health and that judicial proceedings will start soon.
The U.S. Federal Government did not approve Richardson's visit and even asked the two not to go.
