KUALALUMPUR, BritaBrita.com–The Foreign Ministry has reported that Malaysian authorities have held a reconstruction of the alleged murder of Kim Jong-nam, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s half-brother, which reportedly involved an Indonesian woman.
“The Malaysian Police held a reconstruction on Friday, involving Siti [Indonesian passport holder Siti Aisyah] and three other suspects, at the KLIA [Kuala Lumpur International Airport],” Foreign Minister Retno LP Marsudi said as reported by thejakartapost.com.
The Indonesian Embassy in Malaysia has appointed Gooi & Azura as Siti’s lawyers, but the Malaysian authorities are yet to allow them to meet her.
“We have yet to get access to Siti because the Malaysian Criminal Code stipulates that suspects are not allowed to meet anyone during an investigation,” Retno said adding that the ministry and the Malaysian Police would keep in touch to be able to render assistance to Siti as quickly as possible.
Siti, reportedly a resident of Serang, Banten, was arrested by the Malaysian authorities on Thursday, along with a Vietnamese woman and a Malaysian man, who is said to be Siti’s boyfriend, in connection with the apparent murder of Jong-nam.
Several Indonesian officials confirmed that her documents were listed in the database of the Indonesian Embassy in Kuala Lumpur.
Retno also said that the ministry had contacted the Malaysian foreign minister to seek consular access to Siti.
