  • Indonesia Woman Accused Of Kim Jong Nam Murder Freed

Authorities have said the older half-brother of Kim Jong Un died after he was exposed to the nerve agent VX in Kuala Lumpur Airport.

Aisyah, along with Vietnamese woman Doan Thi Huong, had been accused of smearing toxic VX nerve agent on Mr Kim's face in Kuala Lumpur airport in 2017.

This came after prosecutors stated they wanted to withdraw charges against her without disclosing a reason.

According to the BBC, there was "less evidence" against Aisyah than there is against Huong, so the latter's release may not be a foregone conclusion. He had been living overseas for years but could have been considered a threat to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's rule.

Aisyah is expected to return home to Indonesia Monday evening, as officials make preparations for her departure.

Siti Aisyah flew back to Jakarta on Monday, accompanied by Indonesian Law Minister Yasonna H. Laoly.

An Indonesian party girl accused of assassinating the estranged brother of tubby tyrant Kim Jong Un has had murder charges against her dropped.

She was quickly ushered out of the courtroom telling reporters: "I am surprised and very happy". "After this I just want to gather with my family".

Ms. Huong, who remains on trial, was distraught following Ms. Aisyah's release.

Macy, who was not charged Tuesday, paid $15,000 to the fake charity to enable their elder daughter to cheat on the Saturday . Thirteen of those accused, including Huffman, were arrested and slated for arraignment late Tuesday in Los Angeles.


"I am in shock". This means Aisyah has not been formally cleared of the charge and could in theory be arrested on suspicion of Kim's murder again.

He was the half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who reportedly had a falling out with the regime and lived in exile. He said the trial would resume at 10 a.m. Thursday if the Attorney General's Chamber rejected the application.

The judge unexpectedly agreed to a request at Monday's hearing to withdraw the murder charge and release Ms Aisyah, although it did not amount to a full acquittal.

Siti thanked President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo, as well as the Indonesian and Malaysian governments upon her release, adding that she was thankful for all the support she received. The foreign ministry said in a statement that she was "deceived and did not realize at all that she was being manipulated by North Korean intelligence".

Aisyah had been working as a masseuse in Kuala Lumpur, while Doan described herself as an entertainer. But given she was not discharged, Huong said, "I am upset".

The defense had disputed whether the CCTV footage was clear enough to identify the Indonesian woman as an assailant, or establish what she had done to the victim.

"There must be justice", Huong's lawyer said.

"I still believe that North Korea had something to do with it", Gooi said. He had been living outside North Korea for several years.

He had been living overseas for years and was seen as a threat to Kim Jong Un's rule.
