Doan Thi Huong, 30, an accused in the murder of the elder brother of the North Korean leader, will be freed on May 3, at the end of her term of imprisonment.
Salim Bashir, a lawyer representing the accused, told Bernama he was informed several days ago by the Vietnamese embassy that Doan, a citizen of Vietnam, would be freed on that date.
On March 11, the High Court in Shah Alam gave a discharge not amounting to an acquittal to Indonesian Siti Aisyah, another suspect in the murder of Kim Chol or Kim Jong-nam, the estranged elder brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
“Doan will be freed from Kajang Prison in early May. She will be sent back to Vietnam on the same day.
‘’Doan’s family, too, has been informed of the matter,’’ he said when contacted.
