Lawyers for Kim Jong-Nam murder suspects given key documents


KUALA LUMPUR: Lawyers for two women charged with the Cold War-style assassination of the half-brother of North Korea’s leader in Malaysia received a post-mortem report on Friday, after prosecutors initially failed to share key documents. Indonesian Siti Aisyah, 25, and Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, 28, are accused of rubbing banned VX nerve agent in the face of Kim Jong-Nam as he waited to board a plane at Kuala Lumpur International Airport in February. The women, who face the death penalty if convicted, say they were duped into believing they were taking part in a reality TV show. “The documents (received) are the post-mortem report, the chemist report, the arrest report and some others,” Naran Singh, representing Huong, told reporters at the prison where the suspects are being detained.
