Female duo in Jong Nam murder to be charged tomorrow

 | February 28, 2017

The AG says the Vietnamese and Indonesian will be charged in Sepang tomorrow.


PETALING JAYA: The two female assailants arrested following the death of Kim Jong Nam will be charged at the Sepang Magistrates Court tomorrow, Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi Ali said today.

“Tomorrow morning, at the Sepang court,” he told a Malay daily in a short text message.

Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong and Indonesian Siti Aishah are among four detained by police for their alleged involvement in the murder of Jong Nam, who died minutes after he was attacked with what police later confirmed to be a type of substance used in chemical warfare.

The incident has triggered a diplomatic crisis between Malaysia and North Korea, after Pyongyang insisted Malaysian authorities skip an autopsy on Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Pyongyang has also rejected widespread accusations that it was behind the murder.

Police also nabbed local Muhammad Farid Jallaludin and North Korean Ri Jong Chol. Farid has since been released on police bail.
