Cops tracking down four witnesses in Kim Jong-nam murder trial

Published:  |  Modified:

Police are looking for two Indonesian women and two local men as witnesses in the murder trial of Kim Jong-nam in the Shah Alam High Court.

Selangor CID chief Fadzil Ahmat said the two women were identified as Raisa Rinda Salma, 24 (passport B2421541) and Dessy Meyrisinta, 33 (passport B0464727).

The two local men were identified as Tham Yook Kun, 50, and Ng Wah Hoong, 38.

"To date, the four witnesses cannot be traced and a check on their movements with the Immigration Department found they are still in Malaysia,” he said in a statement here today.

Fadzil called on members of the public with information on the four to contact senior investigation officer Wan Azirul Nizam Che Wan at 019-4811844.

Police also distributed pictures and details of the witnesses for publication in the media.

On Aug 16 last year, the court ordered Indonesian Siti Aisyah and Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong to enter their defence on charges of murdering Jong-Nam, the elder brother of North Korean President Kim Jong-un.

Judge Azmi Ariffin made the decision after finding the prosecution had succeeded in proving a prima facie case against Siti Aisyah, 26 and Doan, 29, at the end of the prosecution.

Fadzil said the court had set the dates for the two accused to put up their defence from January to April this year.

Siti Aisyah and Doan were accused with four others still at large of murdering Jong-nam, 45 at the departure hall of KILIA2 at 9am on Feb 13, 2017.
