Witness Reveals Names Of Unidentified Suspects In Jong-Nam Trial

A Malaysian court has been shown airport security video where a Vietnamese murder suspect smeared something on a person's face two days before she allegedly attacked the half brother of North Korea's leader in the same manner.

"The man (seen) walking together with Doan is referred to as Mr Y", he said, adding that the man had smeared a liquid, believed to be VX, onto Doan's hands.

The defence that the VX was created by combining two non-poisonous chemicals was rubbished by Subramaniam on Tuesday.

Components of VX were also found in Huong's fingernails, Raja said.

But Hisyam Teh, Huong's lawyer, argued that she could not have known she was handling VX. Hanamori had given instructions to Mr. Y, while James had "recruited" Siti Aisyah, Wan Azirul said, without elaborating. And while local outlets have reported that all four suspects are of North Korean nationality, Reuters has reported that Azirul did not specify their citizenship.

But Aziz said the act carried out on the North Korean tyrant's half-brother in the second clip "seemed more like an attack".

Kim Jong Nam was seen arriving at the departure hall of the Kuala Lumpur global airport the morning of February 13 and moving to a check-in area. Interpol issued a red notice on the four in March.

The men's faces, however, can not be seen clearly. Malaysia has issued an Interpol red notice, the closest instrument to an global arrest warrant, on the four who left, identified as North Koreans Ri Ji Hyon, Hong Song Hac, O Jong Gil, and Ri Jae Nam.

Kim Jong-nam was carrying $100,000 in cash in his backpack at the time of his murder, the police officer investigating the case told a Malaysian court yesterday.

The defense previously tried to have the tapes rendered inadmissible, claiming they represented hearsay and were not valid evidence.
