American Man Purposely Gets Arrested In North Korea, Claims To Have Military Secrets

Mathew, from Bakersfield, California, traveled to North Korea on 10 April 2014. His goal was to stay there, and he was soon arrested for "unruly behavior." 

Later, he confessed that his main fear was “that they would not arrest me when I arrived."  

Allegedly, he told the North Korean authorities he was a hacker and had "military secrets." He intended to "remove the American military in South Korea."  

He allegedly also claimed he was involved with WikiLeaks, but North Korean authorities never took him seriously.  

That made them desperate to know what made him come to visit in  the first place.
