Kim Chol murder suspects revisit scene of crime at KLIA2

Kim Chol murder suspects revisit scene of crime at KLIA2”

Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, arrived in Malaysia on Feb 6, and was at KLIA2 to board a 9am flight to Macau on the day he was killed.

The two women were brought back to the scene as part of an entourage of court officials, led by trial judge Azmi Ariffin and accompanied by over 100 police officers and dozens of journalists, on a visit to retrace the events that unfolded before, during and after the murder.

The two women accused of murdering Kim Jong Nam returned to Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) on Tuesday morning (Oct 24), surrounded by armed police as well as scores of local and international media.

Siti Aisyah, who is Indonesian, and Doan Thi Huong, who is Vietnamese, face the death penalty if convicted of deliberately killing Kim Jong Nam at a crowded Kuala Lumpur Internation Airport budget terminal in Sepang on 13 February.

The visit was requested by the defence lawyers who wanted to familiarise themselves with the alleged location as recorded by the closed-circuit television cameras in regard to the movement of the two accused.

They have pleaded not guilty to murder, saying it was a TV prank and they were tricked by North Korean agents.

High Court judge Azmi Ariffin (unseen) lawyers for Vietnamese and Indonesian defendant arrive at the low-priced carrier Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 ( KLIA2 ) during a visit to the scene of the murder as part of the Shah Alam High Court trial process in Sepang on October 24, 2017.

The suspects were then taken to a cafe called Bibik Heritage, where Aisyah met a man identified in court as "Mr Chang" who allegedly wiped a liquid on her hands before she carried out the attack.

Malaysian officials have not formally accused Pyongyang of involvement, and the incident strained relations between the countries after several North Koreans left Malaysia after the attack. Both women were then provided wheelchairs.

In CCTV footage, Siti was seen chatting with a man at the restaurant before the attack. Twelve witnesses have testified so far.
