Eight months after Kim Jong Nam dropped dead at Kuala Lumpur worldwide airport, two women arrested and charged with his murder pleaded not guilty on the first day of the much-anticipated trial in Malaysia on Monday.
The two are accused of smearing Kim Jong Nam's face with a toxic VX nerve agent, killing him at Kuala Lumpur airport February 13.
Siti Aisyah of Indonesia and Doan Thi Huong of Vietnam pleaded not guilty as their trial opened Monday in the killing of Kim, widely thought to have been orchestrated by his half brother, North Korea's third-generation leader Kim Jong Un.
Monday's court session was primarily a reconstruction of Kim Jong Nam's final moments at the airport.
While pointing fingers at North Korea for Kim's death, Sathasivam said the dose of VX given to Kim was on the high side as he showed symptoms within minutes.
North Korea has denounced the speculation and has not even acknowledged that the dead man was Kim Jong-nam.
In a tweet on the social media network Twitter, the president suggested that Tillerson was "wasting his time" in trying to negotiate with the North Korean leader.
The murder charge under Section 302 of the Penal Code carries the mandatory death sentence upon conviction.
Personalities north Korean with a party related to the case have fled to Malaysia immediately after the murder.
Experts believe the attack needed two people to smear Kim Jong Nam because each assailant had precursors to VX in their liquid and a chemical reaction on his face turned the liquids into the nerve agent.
Back in Malaysia, Chang asked Aisyah to do several more pranks at the Kuala Lumpur airport a few days before Mr Kim was attacked. They accused the North Korean agents for tricking them.
Dr Nik Mohd Adzrul Ariff Raja Azlan, 34, who was a doctor at the clinic, said he saw the substances inside the patient's mouth which had blocked his view to search for the trachea opening to perform the procedure (by which a tube is inserted through the mouth into the trachea).
The witness said this during cross-examination by lawyer Gooi Soon Seng on whether she agreed a low enzyme level could be due to taking female hormones.
Kim Jong-nam speaks to airport officials after the incident.
Their lawyers argue the women were duped and the true culprits were North Korean agents who told the women what to do. She hoped to be a singing star and celebrity and says she believed the airport gig was for a reality show. Nik said he injected Kim with atropine, a standard procedure to boost slow heart rates, and said he did not know at the time that it is also a treatment for counteracting VX and other nerve agents.
