The 25-year-old Indonesian woman arrested for the murder of Kim Jong Nam has claimed she was given $90 to carry out what she thought was a “baby oil” prank.
As investigations continue into the murder of Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, interrogation have begun against the alleged female assassins, one Indonesian and one Vietnamese, who carried out the attack.
25-year-old Siti Aisyah has claimed during investigations she was approached by two men who paid her 400 Malaysian ringgit (the equivalent of $90) to carry out a prank using what they said was “baby oil” on Kim Jong Nam.
Test on the body has revealed Kim Jong Nam was killed by the illegal toxic nerve agent VX after he was exposed the orderless and tasteless toxic chemical. VX is classified as a weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations. He died moments after seeking assistance at the at Kuala Lumpur international Airport complaining he felt unwell.
Video footage of the attached has since been released, revealing the full extent of the murder as well as footage of the suspected killers including Siti Aisyah and Vietnamese woman Doan Thi Huong, who has been nicknamed the “LOL Killer” after she was seen on CCTV wearing a sweater with the words ‘LOL’ on the day of the murder.
Many now believe this was the work of North Korea. A warrant for the arrest of four Noth Korean men Ri Jihyon, Hong Songhac, Oh Jong Il, and Ri Jae Nam has been sent out after the men all arrived in Malaysia and left the same day of the assassination. It is now believed they have since returned to North Korea.
