Four murder suspects still at large named
> Accused identifies them as ‘Mr James’, ‘Mr Y’, ‘Mr Chang’ and ‘Hanamori @ Grandpa-Uncle’, says cop
SHAH ALAM: The High Court yesterday was told of the names of the four suspects, who are still at large in the Kim Jong-Nam murder trial, which entered its eighth day.
Investigating officer ASP Wan Azirul Nizam Che Wan Aziz from the Sepang district police headquarters, who was the ninth witness, told the court that one of the two accused on trial, Indonesian Siti Aisyah, 25, revealed the names to him following her arrest.
He said Siti had identified them as “Mr James”, “Mr Y”, “Mr Chang”, and “Hanamori @ Grandpa-Uncle”.
He told deputy public prosecutor Wan Shaharuddin Wan Ladin that another suspect, Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, 29, also mentioned the same names when quizzed by him during interrogation.
Wan Azirul Nizam further testified that Mr James was the person who had recruited Siti while Hanamori @ Grandpa-uncle, was the one who gave instructions to Mr Y.
The court also viewed a series of closedcircuit television camera footage which showed both accused with two unidentified men, who are believed to have provided the VX poison used to kill Jong-Nam, the halfbrother of North Korean leader Kim JongUn on Feb 13.
One footage showed Doan walking through KL International Airport 2 (klia2) with a man wearing a cap. Another clip showed Siti meeting another man wearing a black cap at a restaurant, less than an hour before the attack.
However, both men’s faces were heavily obscured in the footage.
“The man walking with Doan is referred to as Mr Y. He had smeared liquid on Doan’s hands,” Wan Azirul Nizam said.
Wan Azirul Nizam also told the court that Mr Chang, identified with Siti in another footage, had smeared the oily substance on her hands.
The trial resumes on Oct 24 with a planned visit to the klia2, where the murder took place.
