KUALA LUMPUR - No police report has been lodged despite the North Korean ambassador alleging that the police have threatened the family of his countryman nabbed over Kim Jong-nam's death.
"If there is really a police report lodged, then we will refer it to the Kuala Lumpur police as the suspect's condominium is in Jalan Kuchai Lama, which is under their jurisdiction," said Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Seri Abdul Samah Mat.
"So far, there isn't any," he said.
City police chief Comm Datuk Amar Singh had also not received any police report on the matter.
On Monday, Kang Chol accused the police of threatening the family of Ri Jong-chol and that they had beaten up his son when raiding the home and arresting him on Friday night.
Ri, 47, is a chemistry expert. He is the fourth person detained over the assassination of Jong-nam, 45, on Feb 13.
As for the ambassador's allegation that North Korea could not trust the probe conducted by the Malaysian police, Comm Samah said such claims were uncalled for.
"We have no agenda. Our priority is to investigate the case based on Malaysian law and regulations.
"They (North Korea) should respect our law and not interfere in our investigation."
