The Feds Go After Dennis Rodman

Dennis Rodman

The federal government is going after former NBA great Dennis Rodman for violating U.S. sanctions on luxury imports into North Korea, the Daily Beast reports.

The U.S. Treasury Department is investigating Rodman to see if the thousands of dollars in birthday gifts he gave to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un violated a law prohibiting the importing of luxury goods into North Korea. The law, signed in 2010 by President Obama, requires a license to transport luxury goods into North Korea. Rodman did not apply for such a license.

On his third and most recent trip to Pyongyang this month, Rodman reportedly brought several gifts for the young Kim’s 31st birthday. They allegedly included hundreds of dollars’ worth of Irish Jameson whiskey, European crystal, an Italian suit, a fur coat, and an English Mulberry handbag for Kim’s wife, Ri Sol-ju.

But these gifts, reportedly worth more than $10,000, may not have been all. Michael Spavor, a Beijing-based consultant who facilitated and joined Rodman’s trip, tweeted a photo of Rodman apparently displaying several bottles of his own brand “Bad Ass Vodka” for Kim Jong Un and his wife.

… Rodman may have violated an American law called the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), as implemented by Executive Order 13551, which President Obama signed in 2010, which makes it a violation of U.S. law for any person determined by the Treasury and State Departments “to have, directly or indirectly, imported, exported, or reexported luxury goods to or into North Korea.” Source

The feds know exactly where to find Rodman.

Upon his return to the U.S. from his most recent trip to North Korea, Rodman’s agent, Darren Prince, issued a statement saying Rodman had entered an alcohol treatment program.

Rodman faces civil penalties of up to $250,000 per violation, a $1 million fine and up to 20 years in prison. Rodman’s assets can also be seized or frozen by the government.
