kuala lumpur - Kim Jong-nam, the murdered half-brother of the North Korean leader Kim Jung-un, had flasks with the antidote in his shoulder bag when he was poisoned with the nerve gas VX. That came to light during the lawsuit in Malaysia against the two women suspected of the murder.
The two women, the 29-year-old Siti Aishah and the 25-year-old Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, have been killing Kim Jong-nam since the beginning of October. They would have killed him on February 13 at the Kuala Lumpur airport. According to the police, they smeared the extremely toxic nerve gas VX on his face. There is suspicion that North Korea is behind the murder.
The women say they are innocent. They have been paying for their act for a long time and they were under the assumption that they were cooperating in a joke for a reality TV show. The two women can receive the death penalty if they are convicted.
The court hearing will be resumed at the end of January.
