Investigating officer says it was as if the accused was carrying out an attack on the North Korean.
SHAH ALAM: The investigating officer in the Kim Jong Nam murder case told the High Court today that Vietnamese accused Doan Thi Huongâs action of wiping Jong Namâs face before his death on Feb 13 was âaggressiveâ.
Police officer Wan Azirul Nizam Wan Che Wan Aziz, attached to Sepang police district, testified that he saw Duon behaving quite roughly towards Jong Nam on that day through the airportâs closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera footage.
âIt was as if she was carrying out an attack.
âShe rushed off after wiping his face,â the ninth prosecution witness said in describing the CCTV recordings he saw on the day of the alleged killing.
Azirul was responding to a question by deputy public prosecutor Wan Shaharudin Wan Ladin on what he witnessed in the CCTV recordings he obtained.
Doanâs lawyer Hisyam Teh objected to the policemanâs answers, saying it was merely his own opinion.
However, Justice Azmi Ariffin said the witness was entitled to his own views as he was describing what he said he saw in the CCTV recordings.
Indonesian Siti Aisyah and Doan are standing trial on a charge of murdering the estranged half-brother of North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong Un on Feb 13.
Jong Nam, the eldest son of former North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, arrived in Malaysia on Feb 6, and was at the klia2 to board a 9am flight to Macau on the day he was killed.
He died on the way to Putrajaya Hospital, sparking a diplomatic row between Putrajaya and Pyongyang.
During the opening statement last week, the prosecution had said it would prove that the two women approached Jong Nam a t the airportâs departure hall and sprayed VX nerve agent on his eyes and face.
Prosecutors told the court the actions of Siti Aisyah and Doan showed they both intended to cause Jong Namâs death.
Azirul also told the court that two days before the incident, Doan was approaching random members of public at the airport and was seen wiping something on their faces.
âShe approached them from behind and wiped something on their faces.
âWhen the people turned to look at her, she appeared to be apologetic by lowering her head slightly and putting her hands together,â he said, adding she then left the scene.
Azirul added Doanâs actions on Feb 11 were different compared with the day she and Siti Aisyah approached Jong Nam.
The trial continues tomorrow before Justice Azmi.
