SEPANG - There was a flurry of activity at Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) as those involved in the Kim Jong-nam murder trial made their way to the scene of the alleged crime on Tuesday.
The site visit marks the ninth day of the trial of Indonesian Siti Aisyah, 25, and Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, 28, who are jointly charged with four others still at large, of killing Jong-nam, 45, at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) departure hall at 9am on Feb 13.
At 10am, both accused, Siti dressed in black and Doan in a baju kurung, were hurriedly led through the departure terminal towards the self check-in kiosk and then to the Bibik Heritage restaurant on Level 2.
The suspects, who were escorted by about 20 heavily armed police personnel, were earlier brought to the airport under heavy police security at around 8.30am.
Judge Datuk Azmi Ariffin arrived with a convoy of police escorts, deputy public prosecutors, defence counsels and court officials.
At about 10.15am, the group visited the Menara Medical Clinic on level 2, where Jong-nam had sought medical treatment.
Pressmen tried to follow the group closely but the police had formed a human ring around the court officials and accused.
After about an hour, the judge and accused were seen taking a break, sitting at the waiting area near the bus and taxi ticketing counters.
Doan and Siti, who were wearing bulletproof vests, were also seen in wheelchairs.
Both accused were then wheeled to the final location at a taxi stand and then led back to the KLIA2 police station.
Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, arrived in Malaysia on Feb 6, and was at KLIA2 to board a 9am flight to Macau on the day he was killed.
