SHAH ALAM Two women pleaded not guilty yesterday to murdering the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, as prosecutors alleged the accused practised for the assassination before carrying it out.
The Indonesian Siti Aisyah and the Vietnamese Thi Huong have communicated their decision through their interpreters before the High Court of Shah Alam on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur, where Kim Jong-Nam had been attacked in the VX, a nerve agent, version highly deadly gas sarin considered a weapon of mass destruction.
The trial is expected to last until November 30. They say they believed at the time that the action was harmless.
Monday's testimony reconstructed Kim Jong Nam's final moments at the airport, while Tuesday's session focused on the cause of death.
North Korea has denounced the speculation and has not even acknowledged that the dead man was Kim Jong-nam.
He died on the way to Putrajaya Hospital from klia2, sparking a diplomatic row between Putrajaya and Pyongyang.
The two were charged along with four North Korean men under Section 302 of the Penal Code, which carries the death penalty. A post-mortem report submitted as evidence to the trial showed that VX was found not just on Kim's face and eyes but also in his blood and urine, and on his clothes and luggage.
Zulkarnain said he did not ask the victim's name or other personal details while bringing him to the airport clinic, where he jotted down on a piece of paper the particulars he gleamed from his passport and mistakenly wrote "South Korea" for his nationality.
The body of Kim Jong-nam was in Malaysia for weeks as the country waited to identify it.
Mr Kim died in February at Kuala Lumpur's airport in a mysterious case that has gripped the world.
