So many interesting happenings following the death of a North Korean man in KL International Airport - he happened to be the step-brother of North Korea's leader...
C4 for a Mongolian...now VX for a North Korean...Well, a good distraction for our UMNO-BN government...if not we may all still be concerned with price hikes, 1MDB, Billions in PM's account, corruption of public servants, death in custody, etc... Opposition problems also seem to have fallen out of focus..
But, in this murder...allegedly committed by 2 women, a Vietnamese and an Indonesians... Hired women assassins?
Wow...so quickly have they been charged..and interesting the Health Minister also comes out to announce the outcome of the autopsy...Why is he making announcements about what is part of a criminal investigation?
The autopsy report revealed that Jong-nam died of organophosphate poisoning, with the substance having consistent qualities with the nerve agent VX, Health Minister Dr S Subramaniam said.
"Organophosphates are a group of chemicals that have many domestic and industrial uses, though they are most commonly used as Insecticides and are responsible for a number of poisonings. The main mechanism is blocking the enzyme acetylcholinesterase causing nervous and respiratory damages that result in the insects death, but they are also hazardous to humans. After the cessation of use of organochloride insecticides, they became the most commonly used Pesticides and are responsible for 70% of pesticidal use in the United States..."
And the 'main suspects' have apparently fled the country...how come?
And, now the North Koreans are making relevant points - if it was the women who did it, how come they did not die by reason of the VX nerve agent?Police said that the North Korean suspect in custody would be deported. They have described four North Korean men as the "main suspects" but they have reportedly since fled the country.
The North Korean high-level delegation to Malaysia wants to know how the two women who had purportedly killed Kim Jong-nam using the highly toxic substance VX nerve agent could survive...“The world’s greatest question is again, the question of the two ladies – they are the ones who directly contained the liquid on the palms of their hands to apply to the face. “They are the first ones to have contact with this material while the victim died - how did they survive?”
Well, it is a criminal case, and the Malaysian police would have to investigate it...and, so they did...and they said that this man was murdered - then there was report that he was killed using the dangerous VX nerve agent...Well, how was the VX Agent used - you certainly cannot put a clothe soaked with VX Agent and apply it to somebody's face - you would also have been poisoned and possibly be dead by now - Well, the North Koreans have finally raised this concern (see the report below)
The North Korean individual detained in connection with the death of Kim Jong-nam will be released from police custody tomorrow and deported, said attorney-general Mohamed Apandi Ali.Police do not have sufficient evidence to charge the man, Apandi told CNN
Now, a North Korean suspect was arrested and remanded - and our AG said that there was not enough evidence to charge him, so we are DEPORTING him? Odd, have the police stopped investigating...Normally, with a suspect where there is some evidence, but not yet sufficient evidence, the police will release him on police bail with the condition not to leave the country and to turn up for further investigation later when needed....if he leaves the country, it will be difficult to get for further questioning...or even to arrest and charge him...So, it is a mystery why he is being deported - is he an 'illegal immigrant' - No more a suspect, just release him and he can remain or go as he pleases? Why deport? Maybe, our AG may need to clarify...
Malaysia will cancel visa-free entry for North Koreans entering the country from March 6, Bernama reported today.According to Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, North Koreans will be required to obtain a visa before entering Malaysia for national security reasons.
