Malaysian police reiterate DNA test needed before DPRK man's body release

Malaysia police Wednesday reiterated that a DNA test would be needed to identify the dead man from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), before the body could be released.

The man died on the way from a Malaysian airport to hospital on Feb. 13. Malaysian police identified the man as a 46-year-old DPRK man named Kim Chol.

Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had earlier said embassy documents showed the man was Kim Jong Nam, half-brother of DPRK top leader Kim Jong Un, but that was denied by the DPRK ambassador to Malaysia.

Malaysian national police chief Khalid Abu Bakar said at a press conference on Wednesday that no family members of the dead DPRK man have come to identify the body and assist the investigation.

Malaysian police had earlier said the family were given two weeks to come over to identify the body. The police have made a request with the DPRK embassy for finding the family.

Khalid also said two persons from the DPRK are wanted in the investigation over the last week's death of the DPRK man in Malaysia.

Four suspects, including a Vietnamese woman, a Indonesian woman, a Malaysian male and a DPRK male, have been arrested so far.
