PETALING JAYA: The North Korean suspect arrested in connection with the murder of Kim Jong-nam will be deported on Friday.

Attorney-General Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali (pic) confirmed that Ri Jong-chol, who was detained on Feb 18, would be released from police custody after his second remand expires, and deported.

“He will not be charged here as there is insufficient evidence against him,” Apandi told The Star Online when contacted Thursday.

He also said that Ri, who was detained at his condominium in Jalan Kuchai Lama, would need to deported as he does not possess valid documents.

Ri, described as an expert in chemistry, was supposedly working at the IT department of Tombo Enterprise Sdn Bhd, a company producing anti-cancer supplements in Cheras.

He graduated in the science and medicine field from a university in North Korea in 2000. Some 10 years later he worked for a research centre in Kolkata, India, until 2011.

Ri allegedly drove one of four North Korean men who are believed to be the masterminds behind Jong-nam’s murder.

The four – Ri Ji-hyon, 33, Hong Song-hac, 34, O Jong-gil, 55 and Ri Jae-nam – are still being hunted by police for reportedly orchestrating the attack on Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

However, the four men are believed to have fled Malaysia and returned to Pyongyang soon after the murder at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) departure hall on Feb 13.

The two women who allegedly administered the deadly VX nerve agent that killed Jong-nam, Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong and Indonesian Siti Aisyah, were charged with murder at the Sepang magistrate’s court on Wednesday.

 

KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysia said on Saturday it would issue an arrest warrant for a North Korean diplomat wanted for questioning over the murder of Kim Jong-nam if he doesn’t voluntarily cooperate with the police.

“Reasonable” time will be given for the diplomat to come forward before police take further action, said Selangor police chief Datuk Seri Abdul Samah Mat (pic).

On Wednesday, Malaysia said 44-year-old Hyon Kwang Song, a second secretary at the North Korean embassy here, was wanted for questioning over the death of the estranged half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

He said if the person concerned did not cooperate the police would issue a notice under Malaysian law, “compelling” them to appear before the investigation team.

“And if he failed to turn up upon given this notice, then we will go to the next step by getting a warrant of arrest from the court,” he told reporters.

Eight North Koreans are wanted in connection with the case, including the diplomat. One has been detained by the Malaysian police, four are believed to have fled to North Korea, while two others are still in Malaysia.

Jong-nam was murdered on Feb 13 at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 by VX nerve agent, classified by the United Nations as a weapon of mass destruction, Malaysian police said on Friday.

Two women – one Indonesian and one Vietnamese – have also been detained. Police had said on Friday that one of them had suffered from the effects of VX and had been vomiting.

Samah also confirmed that authorities raided an apartment in an upscale Kuala Lumpur suburb on Wednesday in connection with the killing.

Investigators were still looking for any traces of chemicals in the apartment, he added. – Reuters

KUALA LUMPUR: There was no police team sent to Macau to collect DNA samples from the family of Kim Jong-nam, said Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar (pic).

Refuting reports which appeared in certain dailies, the Inspector-General of Police said no such team had been sent.

“We have not sent any team to retrieve any DNA samples.

“We have not received any samples as well,” he told the media at the Kuala Lumpur police Chinese New Year open house here on Thursday.

A North Korean diplomat and a staff member of the North Korean national airline are being sought by the police in the widening probe of Jong-nam’s assassination.

According to Khalid, investigations are ongoing and police are waiting to interview North Korean Embassy Second Secretary Hyon Kwang Song, 44, and Air Koryo employee Kim Uk Il, 37.

Jong-nam, 45, the estranged half-brother of North Korea supreme leader Kim Jong-un, was assassinated on Feb 13 at the KLIA2 by two women who poisoned him.

Four people have so far been arrested in relation to the case.

They are Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, 28; Indonesian Siti Aisyah, 25; North Korean Ri Jong-chol, 47, and Siti Aisyah’s boyfriend, Malaysian Muhammad Farid Jalaluddin.

The remand for Doan and Siti Aisyah was extended for a further seven days while the boyfriend would be released on police bail.

Four North Koreans who were also involved in the murder have returned to Pyongyang.

Malaysian police had requested the North Korean government to hand them over.
