Witness at Malaysia trial says 4 more suspects in Kim murder

Video in Malaysian court shows 'fatal attack on Kim Jong Nam'

Video in Malaysian court shows practice before Kim attack

Prosecutors however, contend the women knew they were handling poison.

Kim Jong Nam was seen arriving at the departure hall of the Kuala Lumpur worldwide airport the morning of February 13 and moving to a check-in area.

In the first recording she was shown approaching a bystander from behind to wipe something on the person's face "in a soft manner", according to police official Wan Azirul Nizam Che Wan Aziz. The man, wearing a black cap and carrying a black backpack, was seen in the video walking into the airport with a woman who resembled Huong.

The men's faces, however, can not be seen clearly.

He told deputy public prosecutor Wan Shaharuddin Wan Ladin that the second suspect, Doan Thi Huong, also mentioned the same names to identify the four individuals when quizzed by him.

"The man (seen) walking together with Doan is referred to as Mr Y", he said, adding that the man had smeared a liquid, believed to be VX, onto Doan's hands.

The murder charge under Section 302 of the Penal Code carries the mandatory death sentence upon conviction.


The defense lawyers for both Huong and Siti Aisyah said the videos could be considered hearsay, as the investigating officer did not record them himself and was not present to witness the crime. Experts have testified that VX can be safely removed by careful hand-washing within 15 minutes of exposure.

James later introduced Aisyah to a man called Chang, who said he was the producer of Chinese video prank shows.

That encounter was described as a practice session for smearing Kim's face with VX nerve agent, the court was told.

Malaysia has issued an Interpol red notice, the closest instrument to an global arrest warrant, on the four who left, identified as North Koreans Ri Ji Hyon, Hong Song Hac, O Jong Gil, and Ri Jae Nam.

Malaysia never directly accused North Korea, but South Korea's spy agency has said the attack was part of a five-year plot by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to kill a brother he reportedly never met. Kim Jong Nam was not thought to be seeking influence over his younger brother but had spoken out publicly against his family's dynastic rule.

The trial will resume after a planned visit to the airport on October 24.
