A woman suspect arrested this morning in connection with the death of a North Korean man is the bearer of an Indonesian passport.

Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar said the suspect’s name is Siti Aishah.

He said Siti Aishah was born in Serang, Indonesia, on Feb 11, 1992.

“Police also confirmed that the suspect was positively identified from the CCTV footage at the KL International Airport 2 and was alone at the time of arrest.

“The investigation continues, action against suspect will be taken in accordance with the law,” Khalid said in a statement.

Yesterday, police arrested a 29-year-old woman who held the Socialist Republic
of Vietnam travel document bearing the name Doan Thi Huong, at klia2.

Meanwhile, the remand order on two foreign women linked to the case was made at the Sepang district police headquarters (IPD) today.

Sepang magistrate Sharifah Muhaymin Abd Khalid was brought to the Sepang IPD in a police patrol car for the remand order process.

Wearing her magistrate’s robe, she arrived at the IPD at about 10.30am and left half an hour later.

However, the two foreign women were not seen.

Selangor police chief, Abdul Samah Mat, when contacted, said the two women were being remanded for seven days from today.

Last Monday, the North Korean man, claimed by the media to be Kim Jong-nam, the elder half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, was reportedly at klia2 at 8am to board a flight to Macau when a woman suddenly covered his face with a cloth laced with poison.

Jong-nam, allegedly travelling under the name Kim Chol, was reported to have died on the
way to the hospital. – Bernama
