金正男

Kim Jong Nam murder accused released in Malaysia

被控杀害金正男的印尼女子西蒂•艾莎在本周一获释,此前马来西亚检察官撤销了对她提起的谋杀指控。

The Indonesian woman accused of killing Kim Jong Nam, the estranged half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, was freed from custody on Monday after Malaysian prosecutors dropped the murder charge against her.

Siti Aisyah, 26, was discharged without an acquittal after prosecutors applied to withdraw the charge without giving an explanation.

Ms Aisyah was one of two women accused of killing Kim Jong Nam at Kuala Lumpur airport in February 2017 by smearing VX nerve agent on his face and eyes. The women have said they believed they were performing a stunt for a reality television show.

"We still truly believe she is barely a scapegoat and she's innocent …There was no direct evidence that she applied anything on Kim Jong Nam," Gooi Soon Seng, Ms Aisyah's lawyer, told reporters on Monday.

Doan Thi Huong of Vietnam, Ms Aisyah's alleged accomplice, was due to give testimony in her own trial on Monday after months of delay. But her case was put on hold after Ms Aisyah's sudden release. 

In a preliminary hearing in August last year, Judge Azmi Ariffin pushed back on the women's defence that they were unknowing participants in Kim Jong Nam's death, saying he could not rule out the killing was a “political assassination”.
