A police officer charged with investigating the murder of Kim Jong Nam identified four other suspects in the case in a Malaysian court on Thursday, on the eighth day of the trial of the two women accused of Kim's murder.

Pic: SunpixSHAH ALAM: Investigating officer from the Sepang district police headquarters, ASP Wan Azirul Nizam Che Wan Aziz, told the High Court here today the names of the four unidentified suspects as revealed to him by first suspect Siti Aisyah, 25, following her arrest.

Indonesian Siti Aisyah and Vietnamese national Doan Thi Huong were charged in March along with four unnamed others for the murder of Kim Jong Nam at Kuala Lumpur global airport on Feb 13.

Video footage presented in court showed Vietnamese suspect Doan Thi Huong walking in the airport with a man who wore a baseball cap.

Huong and Siti Aisyah are accused of murdering Kim Jong Nam by smearing his face with liquid VX, a chemical poison banned by the United Nations."Based on my investigation, Mr. Y was the person who applied a liquid on the second accused", Wan Azirul said, referring to Huong.

That encounter was described as a practice session for smearing Kim's face with VX nerve agent, the court was told. She walked swiftly to a restroom, keeping her hands partially raised and away from her body.

They then went to the taxi stand, where they got into a vehicle to leave.

Their defense lawyers have said Huong and Aisyah were duped by suspected North Korean agents into believing they were playing a harmless prank for a TV show. From my observation, Doan has been informed and knew what needed to be done.

He named the two other at-large suspects as James, the suspected recruiter of Aisyah, and Hanamori, who is nicknamed grandpa or uncle and who is suspected of giving directions to Mr. Y. Both women have pleaded not guilty to murder charges that carry mandatory death sentences if they are convicted.
