SHAH ALAM - Two of the four men charged with the accused in the murder of Kim Jong-nam changed their appearances at the airport after the victim was attacked, the High Court heard.
Investigating officer (IO) Asst Supt Wan Azirul Nizam Che Wan Aziz said based on the CCTV footage, the four - Mr Chang, Mr Y, James and Hanamori - were there at KL International Airport 2 (KLIA2) "before, during and after the incident took place".
Yesterday, the court was shown clips of CCTV footage on a big screen.
ASP Wan Azirul, referring to the footage, said Mr Y was seen wearing a cap and carrying a backpack at KLIA2 at 9.13am on Feb 13.
He, however, was seen walking into a washroom at Level Two and walking out without the cap and the backpack at 9.23am.
ASP Wan Azirul was testifying at the trial of Indonesian Siti Aisyah, 25, and Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, 28, who are charged with the murder of Kim Chol, 45, at the departure hall of KLIA2 at 9am on Feb 13.
Kim Chol is the alias used by Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, when he travelled.
Meanwhile, Mr Chang, who sported a moustache and a beard, was seen wearing a grey hooded shirt with a cap bearing the "Adidas" logo while holding a white plastic bag at Level 2M at 7.37am.
At 9am, he entered a washroom on Level Three. At 9.12am, he was seen exiting the washroom in a red t-shirt.
"The white plastic bag was changed to an orange one. He no longer sported a moustache and beard," ASP Wan Azirul said.
The investigating officer said, according to the CCTV footage, all four men, including Mr Y and Mr Chang, were seen meeting one another once during that day.
"It was clear they were planning the movements and actions that they were going to take after the incident," he said.
ASP Wan Azirul said he observed that the men, while changing their clothes and appearances, did not change their shoes.
"That is the element that helped me recognise them," he said.
The hearing continues on Nov 6.
