If there’s something North Korea loves, its being in the news for their absurdity. On the other hand, it appears that they just cannot help it at times. Recently, Kim Jon Un’s half brother, Kim Jon Nam was assassinated with poisoned darts as he waited to board a plane. While there was confusion and loads of speculation on the motive, the murder has plenty of bizarre parts to it such as:

  • Kim Jon Nam was scared of his brother
  • He was travelling to Macau
  • He was killed by two females
  • Cause of death is considered to be poison

There is speculation, particularly on who was behind the murder and many people have pointed out that Kin Jon Un was not fond of his half brother. Kim Jon Nam had become disillusioned with North Korea and its dictatorship, even going so far as to state that Kin Jon Un’s regime was “a joke to the outside world.”

Arrest of a Suspect

Recently, a woman was arrested; being linked to having killed Kin Jon Nam but her confession to it is even weirder. The girl called Siti Aishah is among the four people who have been detained in connection with the murder. Aishah claims having no knowledge of committing a murder as she thought she was playing a prank.

Aishah had previously been paid to be part of pranks that involved spraying men with water after convincing them to close their eyes. As stated by the Indonesian National Police chief, Tito Karnavian, “The prank was done three or four times and they were given a few dollars for it, and with the last target, Kim Jong-nam, allegedly there were dangerous materials in the sprayer. She was not aware that it was an assassination attempt by alleged foreign agents.”

Siti and her boyfriend, as well as another woman, have been arrested for their involvement, but Siti’s family has defended her claims for innocence, stating that she was a struggling mother who had moved to Malaysia to find work.

Wide Spread Confusion

Another problem is the wide-spread confusion that has occurred due to the fact that North Korea refuses to accept the autopsy tests conducted by the Malaysian authorities. After the inconclusive nature of the first one, a second one was performed but Kang Chol, the ambassador of North Korea has stated that, “The Malaysian side forced the postmortem without our permission and witnessing, we will categorically reject the result of the postmortem conducted unilaterally excluding our attendance.”

Chol has claimed that the Malaysian police conducted the tests under duress from hostile forces such as South Korea and stated that the postmortem was in violation of Kim Jon Nam’s human rights. Moreover, there is further tension regarding the release of the body since the Malaysian authorities insist on only allowing Kim Jon Nam’s next of kin to claim the body. However, they will have to undergo a DNA test to prove this claim before the body is released to them.
