Malaysia frees Indonesian woman accused of Kim Jong Nam’s poisoning

The two women had allegedly smeared VX nerve agent on Jong-nam's face at KLIA2 on Feb 13, 2017.

The court will resume proceedings on Huong's case on Thursday, pending a reply from Mr Thomas to a request that charges against her be withdrawn. Four North Korean suspects who had been wanted in the case fled Malaysia after Kim was killed.

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.

"I am sure they decided that it was an easy thing to release her and score a few points with Indonesia".

However, the courts made a decision to release Siti yesterday after her charges were dropped and she is now back home in Indonesia.

Ms Siti, who had worked as a masseuse in the Malaysian capital, and Huong, who described herself as an actress, had maintained that they believed they had been hired to participate in a reality TV prank show.

At the news conference in Kuala Lumpur, Mr Yasonna said that in his letter to Malaysia, he gave three reasons why the prosecution should drop its charges against Ms Aisyah, and these included that she was a victim of deception and had nothing to gain from committing the act.

"Since the murder charge against Siti Aisyah has been dropped, why is there unequal treatment slapped on Viet accused Doan Thi Huong?" He had been living overseas for years but could have been seen as a threat to Kim Jong Un's rule.

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. Pyongyang denies the accusation.

"Until today, we do not know what were the exceptional circumstances that were needed for the attorney-general to review the charge against Siti Aisyah". Although the two women were being tried together, the cases against them were separate, and the court had asked the Indonesian woman to present her defence first.

"This is a decision made by the Court".

Accompanied by Indonesian officials, Ms Aisyah was yesterday flown to Jakarta, arriving at 5.30pm local time.

Laoly said Siti Aisyah's release, after over two years in prison, was the result of high-level diplomacy by his government, including meetings with Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the attorney-general.

Malaysia's Attorney-General Chambers issued the order last Friday not to prosecute Ms Siti, according to a letter revealed by the Indonesian embassy in Kuala Lumpur yesterday. "We are making representation to the attorney general for Doan to be taken equally.there must be justice". The country's foreign ministry said in a statement that Aisyah was "deceived and did not realize at all that she was being manipulated by North Korean intelligence".
