Judge Cites A 'Well-Planned Conspiracy' In Kim Jong Nam's Death
The two assassin women were Mafia sex workers

Vietnamese national Doan Thi Huong (center), escorted by armed Malaysian police, leaves after facing trial at the Shah Alam High Court outside Kuala Lumpur on Thursday.

Two women accused of killing Kim Jong Nam, the estranged half brother of North Korea's dictator, will remain in custody after a judge in Malaysia on Thursday said there is enough evidence of a "well-planned conspiracy" to move the case forward.

The two women, 25-year-old Siti Aisyah, an Indonesian national, and 29-year-old Doan Thi Huong, a Vietnamese national, allegedly smeared the banned nerve agent VX on Kim's face in the airport of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in February 2017. Kim died in 20 minutes.

Although there has never been any definitive proof, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is widely believed to have ordered his brother's execution.

The women say they were tricked into participating in the attack and thought it was part of a reality TV show prank.

Four North Korean men have also been charged as part of the death, but they left Malaysia the morning of the attack and remain at large.

Trial judge Azmi Ariffin called the murder of Kim a "well-planned conspiracy between the women and the four North Koreans at large," according to Reuters, which reports that the judge called upon the two women to prepare a defense for a trial to be held sometime between November and February.

They could face the death penalty if convicted.

The judge added that although there was not enough evidence to say whether it was a political assassination, he could not rule it out.

The judge said security camera footage "showed that they had the knowledge that the liquid on their hands was toxic," according to the BBC. The judge said there was no hidden crew and no attempt to bring the person in on the joke afterward, as is common in reality TV prank shows.

Kim had been living in exile with his family in the Chinese territory of Macau. He "had spoken out in the past against his family's dynastic control of North Korea and in a 2012 book was quoted as saying he believed his half-brother lacked leadership qualities," the BBC reported. There had been a "standing order" for the elder Kim's death since Kim Jong Un took power in 2011, according to The New York Times.

VX is banned by the international Chemical Weapons Convention, though some believe North Korea maintains a stockpile of the nerve agent.

Kim Jong Nam murder: 5 seconds was all it took to poison him
A news programme showing how the alleged assassination of Kim Jong Nam took place is shown on a TV screen in Pyeongchang, Gangwon-do, South Korea, on Feb 15, 2017.

http://www.straitstimes.com/asia/se-asia/5-seconds-was-all-it-took-to- administer-poison-on-kim-jong-nam-report

KUALA LUMPUR - It took no more than five seconds for two assailants said to be North Korean agents to administer what is believed to be poison on Kim Jong Nam, the estranged half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, at Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) on Monday (Feb 13), Malaysian daily New Straits Times reported.



Kim, 45, was standing in a small crowd in front of the airport's self-service check-in counter when his purported female assailants struck, the report said.

One of them stood in front of him to distract him while the other locked him from behind in a chokehold, and administered the poison that killed him soon after, the report said.

It suggested that the operation was captured on the multitude of closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras positioned strategically throughout the departure hall.

Subsequent movements of the female assassins after the job was carried out were also filmed by the cameras, it said.

KUALA LUMPUR/JAKARTA (Reuters) - The woman with the acronym 'LOL' on her shirt who was arrested this week in connection with the murder of North Korea's Kim Jong Nam stayed in cheap hotels, carried a wad of cash and cut her hair a day before the brazen attack at Kuala Lumpur airport.

According to the receptionist at one of the hotels, a woman who had checked in under the Vietnamese name of Doan Thi Huong on Sunday (Feb 12) left early in the morning on Monday, the day of the assassination, and returned later, showing no signs of stress.

Police believe she was the person who, at around 8.20am that day, had approached the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un from behind at the Malaysian capital's budget airline terminal and thrust a deadly poisonous substance into his face.

According to Malaysian media reports, Doan told police she had been duped into what she thought was a harmless practical joke. A second woman who has been detained, an Indonesian national, also thought she was involved in a prank, some media reports said.

However, staff at two hotels in a rundown area near the airport gave details of Doan's movements before the killing that appeared both calm and deliberate.

A private investigator told Reuters her behaviour bore the hallmarks of an intelligence operative.

A STACK OF MONEY, HAIR-CUT

Doan went first to the two-star Qlassic Hotel, checking in on Saturday, Feb 11. A staff member who asked not to be named said she stayed in the cheapest room, which had no windows.

"I remember she had wanted to extend her stay here, and was ready to pay with a stack of money in her hand," said another member of the Qlassic's staff, a front-desk employee who only identified herself as Sia.

After one night, Doan checked into the CityView Hotel, arriving with a suitcase, a backpack and a large teddy bear, the receptionist told Reuters, declining to be named. She said Doan spoke understandable English.

She borrowed a pair of scissors from the front desk the evening before the attack, and a member of housekeeping staff found hair on the floor and in the waste basket the next day. "She found the scissors on the room desk. And there was hair strewn on the floor in the room, (Doan) had thrown some in the bin but there was still a mess," the receptionist said.

She said that the next day Doan had on the shirt she was seen wearing in an airport CCTV grab that has earned her the nickname "LOL Girl" in Malaysian media.

Doan was out for much of the morning and, on her return, she seemed "relaxed" and "didn't look angry or worried".

Doan complained about the Wifi in her room and when she was told it couldn't be fixed until the afternoon, she checked out and left.

She then checked into the SkyStar Hotel, also nearby, and left after one night, an employee said.

It is not known where Doan went next. Police said she was arrested on Wednesday morning, about 48 hours after the murder, in the same terminal where Kim Jong Nam was attacked.

"If you ask me, do her movements indicate that she was an intelligence operative, then I would say yes," said a private investigator in Kuala Lumpur who asked not to be named.

"That is how they operate. Change of appearance, cash transactions, no paper trail and constantly on the move."

SECOND WOMAN FROM A JAKARTA SLUM

The Indonesian woman who was arrested on Thursday, Siti Aisyah, had lived a quiet life in a slum district of Jakarta before going to find work in Malaysia, residents in the western neighbourhood of the Indonesian capital said.

According to Malaysian media reports, she stood in front of Kim to distract him while her accomplice approached from behind.

In Jakarta, Aisyah had worked for a time in the tailoring business in the house of her ex-husband's family, sewing clothes by hand, former neighbours in the Tambora district said.

"I can't believe the news. Her background was very simple,"said community leader R. Yusri.

The couple moved to Malaysia several years ago but separated in 2012. Aisyah's former father-in-law said she had returned to Jakarta on Jan 28 to visit her seven-year-old son. She had looked thinner than usual and had a cough.

The streets in Tambora district are too narrow for cars to pass through. A tangle of washing lines hangs above small concrete and makeshift homes, many housing small businesses or selling clothes and food.

Ida Anisafitri, a neighbour, said Aisyah kept a low profile when she visited there.

"We would see her briefly with the child and then she would go back inside the house," Anisafitri said, as a loudspeaker from a nearby mosque sounded with the call to prayer.

Timeline: The 'assassination' of Kim Jong Nam
What happened to the half-brother of Kim Jong Un at Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2? Who has been arrested for the suspected murder?
By Amy Chew Posted 18 Feb 2017 08:32 Updated 18 Feb 2017 08:40
http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asiapacific/timeline-the-assassina tion-of-kim-jong-nam/3527518.html

KUALA LUMPUR: On the morning of Feb 13, Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, was at Malaysia’s low-cost Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) and headed for his flight to Macau where he lives in exile.

He never made it home.

Here is a recap of the alleged assassination and the ensuing fallout.

FEB 13, 2017

As the portly 46-year-old was walking through the departure hall just after 8am, two women who had been tailing him struck, according to Malaysian police.

One of the women allegedly distracted Kim while another grabbed his face from behind and clamped a cloth believed to be soaked in a chemical to it.

Kim sought help at the airport’s help desk, telling a receptionist there he felt dizzy. According to China Press, his last words were: “Very painful, very painful, I was sprayed with liquid.”

He was taken to a clinic one floor down from the arrival hall. At that point, he experienced mild seizure and was on the verge of passing out, reports said. An ambulance was called and he was sent to the Putrajaya Hospital close by.

“He died on the way to hospital,” a senior police source told ChannelNewsAsia.

FEB 14

A day later, South Korean media broke news of the death citing intelligence sources. Early reports allege that he was attacked with poison needles or splashed with an unknown liquid. Malaysian officials would only confirm that a Korean man, carrying travel documents under the name Kim Chol, died on the way to hospital.

FEB 15

On Wednesday, Seoul's unification ministry said the South Korean government is confident the "murdered man" was Kim Jong Nam, saying North Korea had been planning to kill him for the past five years.

Malaysian police announced the arrest of a woman holding a Vietnamese passport who matched CCTV footage of the alleged attackers. The suspect is identified as 28-year-old Doan Thi Huong.

CCTV images of the suspected attackers were published by the media and one of the women reportedly involved is seen sporting a white blouse with "LOL" written in front.



An autopsy on the body at Kuala Lumpur Hospital was also completed on Wednesday evening to the objection of North Korea, which wanted the body released immediately for cremation.

FEB 16

Malaysia's deputy prime minister confirmed three days after the North Korean man who died was Kim Jong Nam. Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi told the press that Kim Jong Un's half-brother had travelled with a passport with the name “Kim Chol”.

Earlier that day 2am, an Indonesian by the name of Siti Aisyah, 25, was arrested. Her boyfriend, Malaysian Muhammad Farid Jalaluddin, 26, was picked up by police as well to assist in investigations.

FEB 17

On Friday, Malaysian authorities said they would not release the body of Kim Jong Nam until his family has provided a DNA sample.

At about 11.40pm, the North Korean envoy to Malaysia was spotted at Hospital Kuala Lumpur trying to gain access to the National Institute of Forensic Medicine at where Kim Jong Nam’s body is being held. He read out a statement accusing Malaysia of "forcing" a post-mortem on the body and alleged that it was "colluding with hostile forces" by rejecting demands to release the body.

In response, Malaysia’s police chief said: "Whilst in Malaysia, everyone has to obey our rules and regulations ...that includes North Korea."

Channel NewsAsia spoke to people in the hometown of the Indonesian suspect in Kim Jong Nam's death and is told the woman is "very timid" and very much an "introvert".

THE LIFE OF KIM JONG NAM

Kim Jong Nam was the eldest son of North Korea’s late leader Kim Jong-il. Unlike most of his isolated countrymen, he had a cosmopolitan upbringing and was educated at the International School of Geneva and Lycée Français Alexandre Dumas in Moscow.

He was considered to be in training as North Korea’s next supreme leader during the 1990s, but fell out of favour with his father after he was caught trying to enter Japan in 2001 on a fake passport to visit Tokyo Disneyland.

His birth was considered shameful because his father and mother, actress Sung Hye Rim, were unmarried.

He went into exile and was known to be living in Macau from around 2003, but also had relatives, including at least three children with three different women – two wives and one mistress – living in Beijing, according to South Korea’s intelligence service. His travels and good life were documented on a Facebook page under the name "Kim Chol", which some say may have been his undoing.

China 'protecting Kim Jong-nam'
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/northkorea/9034792/Chi na-protecting-Kim-Jong-nam.html

Kim Jong-nam, the oldest son of North Korea's late leader, is being protected by China as a fallback option if the regime of his half-brother,

The elder Kim, who lives in exile in Beijing and Macao, said in interviews for a book released on January 20 that he feels "suffocated" in the Chinese capital because he is never alone.
"If there is trouble anywhere near him, he said that suddenly a number of people appear around him," said Yoji Gomi, a journalist and author of 'My Father, Kim Jong-il, and I: Kim Jong-nam's Exclusive Confession'.
"Even when nothing is happening, he feels their presence," Gomi added. "He said he does not know if he is being protected or monitored, but it is always like that."
It appears that China is taking care of him for its own aims, he added.
"Having the son of the former leader of a neighbouring country under their protection could be a political card that the Chinese could use at some time in the future," he said.

Interviewed over the space of seven years, via email and in person, Kim expressed high hopes for North Korea, although the three main points he voiced after the death of his father in December are unlikely to have been welcomed in Pyongyang.
Kim expressed fear that the country is being run by an inexperienced young man who is likely to be acting at the behest of other forces, and that without economic reforms similar to those carried out in China, he could fall from power. Secondly, he voiced strong opposition to the hereditary transfer of power to his half-brother – and claims his father had been equally against the idea not long ago – as it runs completely counter to socialist philosophy. And, finally, he is a strong advocate of a "people-first" policy, instead of the North's present "military-first" ideal.
Kim also gave the impression of being genuinely concerned about the future of his homeland – not an accusation that can be levelled at other senior members of a regime that, if some reports are to be believed, spends the nation's wealth on sumptuous palaces, private yachts and trains, as well as the finest food and drink that money can buy.
"I got the impression that he was a person you could talk to, someone you could have as a friend, someone you could trust," said Gomi, who struck up a friendship with Kim after a chance encounter in Beijing Airport.
There were some issues that Kim was unwilling to discuss with Gomi, including the state of his father's health, his relationship with the rest of the leadership in Pyongyang, the North's nuclear ambitions, military issues or the abduction of Japanese nationals. He was also reluctant to go into the reason that, it has been speculated, was the cause of him falling out of favour with his father and his half-brother eventually inheriting a post that he had reportedly groomed for.
Kim was arrested in May 2001 trying to enter Japan on a forged Dominican Republic passport with two women and a boy aged 4, telling police that he wanted to visit Disneyland. To Gomi, he also revealed that Kim Jung-on and other senior North Koren officials had travelled on forged passports frequently, but th
