A Canadian security consultant that was once detained in a North Korean prison for two-and-a-half days just exposed the North Korean government and their awful prisons.
Speaking to Newsmax, James Leigh, a businessman who has major contacts among global intelligence officials, said he was detained by the North Korean government on April 22 after he was invited to speak at the country’s Military Foundation Day on April 25.
According to Leigh, there was an American being held in a cell adjacent to his. He identified the other man as tony Kim, 58, a visiting professor at the University of Science and Technology, who was also arrested in April for “acts of hostility” against Kim Jong Un’s brutal regime.
Conservative Tribune reports:
Kim disclosed to Leigh that he was regularly beaten and interrogated by North Korean officials. The American professor also said that there were countless other foreign nationals secretly in custody.
Kim told Leigh about a secret facility where the country keeps those prisoners. According to the professor, locals call that facility “the house of people with no name,” a horrifying name in itself.
“He was pretty specific about that,” Leigh said. “He knew about that. That was something he really wanted me to know … There were Americans and Europeans … He was pretty specific because that was probably where he was going.”
“He says there a lot more Americans than we know about being held,” he continued.
Leigh called his North Korean prison experience a “near-death experience … The most valuable thing I can do is get out of here and tell this story.”
He was eventually released on April 27.
To date, there are four confirmed U.S. citizens being held in North Korean prisons. The American government needs to do something about this, no American citizen should be left to rot in a North Korean jail.
