Vietnamese suspect in Kim Jong Nam’s killing seeking release

Vietnam requests Kim Jong-nam murder suspect release

"I feel very happy".

Once the court released her, Siti Aisyah, wearing a black traditional Malay dress and headscarf, was rushed to the Indonesian embassy, where she spoke briefly with journalists.

SULLIVAN: He says North Korean agents orchestrated Kim's death, and he's not alone. No reason was given.

"I did not expect that today I would be released", she said. It said Minh requested the Malaysian court conduct a fair trial and free Doan Thi Huong.

Thomas wrote in a letter to Indonesia's minister of law and human rights that prosecutors made a decision to drop Aisyah's charges and release her "taking into account the good relations" between Malaysia and Indonesia.

Salim said trial judge Azmi Arifin had ordered Huong to make her defence on Thursday if there was no response from the AG.

Her lawyers have now asked that her case be adjourned and charges against her be dropped, too. Authorities believe that Kim Jong Un had his half-brother assassinated as part of an effort to consolidate his power after he became the ruler of North Korea.

Is Lori Loughlin's Daughter Olivia Jade Getting Expelled For Bribery Case?
In the midst of the ivy league bribing scandal , Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman aren't the ones getting most of the heat. Prosecutors said those claims were false as neither of the Gianulli sisters is a member of the university's rowing team.

Kim Jong Nam had lived in exile in Macau for several years before the killing, having fled his homeland after his half-brother became North Korea's leader in 2011 following their father's death. Pyongyang has denied the accusation.

Huong's lawyer, Hisyam Teh Poh Teik, said after Monday's court session that Huong felt Aisyah's discharge was unfair if she was still going to be held.

"Until today, we do not know what were the exceptional circumstances that were needed for the attorney-general to review the charge against Siti Aisyah".

Home: Siti Aisyah laughs during a news conference at the airport in Jakarta, Indonesia, yesterday.

Siti Aisyah's trial was suspended in December as her lawyers argued with prosecutors over access to statements made by seven witnesses.

Vietnam provided legal counsel to Huong, but has refrained from publicly lobbying for her release until Tuesday. The attorney-general agreed to the request last week.

Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has denied that any form of lobbying took place to secure Indonesian Siti Aisyah's freedom. The foreign ministry said in a statement that she was "deceived and did not realise at all that she was being manipulated by North Korean intelligence".
