Jong-nam murder trial: Accused from Vietnam undergoes medical check-up

KUALA LUMPUR : Doan Thi Huong, 30, in bullet-proof attire, was brought to the hospital to undergo a physical and mental examination on Friday at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital.

Doan, a native Vietnamese woman, has been accused of the murder of Kim Jong-nam, half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

She reportedly fell ill yesterday at the Shah Alam High Court where the murder trial was taking place. This prompted Judge Azmi Ariffin to postpone the hearing to April 1 after Doan’s counsel Hisyam Teh Poh Teik said she was physically and mentally unfit to testify.

Doan and Siti Aisyah, as well as four others still at large, were accused of Jong-nam’s murder at the departure hall of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) on Feb 13, 2017.
