Vietnam Asks Malaysia to Free Woman Accused of Poisoning Kim Jong Nam

Release of suspect in Kim murder right call Malaysia

Vietnam yesterday asked Malaysia to free the Vietnamese woman charged with murdering the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's half-brother in Kuala Lumpur, a day after her Indonesian co-accused was suddenly released.

Vietnam's Deputy PM Pham Binh Minh, who is also the foreign minister, spoke with Malaysian Foreign Minister Saifuddin Abdullah by telephone on Tuesday and discussed Doan Thi Huong's indictment in the alleged murder of Kim Chol among other bilateral issues. A statement posted on the ministry's website said Minh requested the Malaysian court conduct a fair trial and free Huong. The call between the foreign ministers came as a surprise as Vietnam had refrained from publicly lobbying for her release until Tuesday.

On Monday (March 11), the Shah Alam High Court granted a discharge not amounting to an acquittal to Siti Aisyah.

Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, a suspect in the murder of Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, is set to appear in court on Thursday.

Some South Korean lawmakers said the North Korean regime had ordered the assassination of Kim Jong Nam, who had been critical of his family's dynastic rule.

Kim Jong Nam was the eldest son of their late father Kim Jong Il, and therefore presented a potential threat to Kim Jong Il's legitimacy as ruler of North Korea.

Huong's lawyer, Hisyam Teh Poh Teik, said Huong felt Aisyah's discharge was unfair to her because the judge a year ago had found sufficient evidence to continue the murder trial against them. Pyongyang denies the accusation.
