Police have submitted their investigation papers on the murder of Kim Jong-nam to the Attorney-General’s chambers for further action.

Media reports suggested that once the AG had given the green light, the three suspects detained for the murder could be charged this week.

Police can take further action only after AG had gone through the investigation papers and decided to press charge.

The murder suspects were Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, 29, Indonesian Siti Aisyah, 25, and North Korean Ri Jong-chol, 47.

Their remand is due to end this week.

Jong-nam, 45, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, died after two women allegedly wiped his face with a chemical at the KLIA2 departure hall on Feb 13.

He was about to leave for Macau.

It’s learnt that investigation papers contained facts of the case, the involvement of the suspects, accounts of witnesses, the report by the Chemistry Department on tests done on the chemical used in the murder.

It’s learnt that the police investigation had identified the chemical as the VX nerve agent.
