PUTRAJAYA: The family of Kim Jong-Nam has been given a time frame of three weeks to claim his remains, said Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S Subramaniam.
He said once the period is over, the government will decide on the next course of action.
Subramaniam added that Wisma Putra is trying to contact Jong-Nam’s next-of-kin.
“We have been told that he has wives and children. We hope that they respond and come forward to claim the body now that it is confirmed that the murdered victim is Kim Jong-Nam,” he said.
He revealed that the government is ready to take the next course of action if the body is not claimed.
“In the absence of family we will address it as a government through the Prime Minister’s department, the Home Ministry, and the Health Ministry,” he said at a press conference today.
He said the government will proceed with the next step after two to three weeks. – The Sun
