Police today denied claims that family members or next-of-kin of the late Kim Jong-nam arrived in Malaysia for body identification at the National Forensic Medicine Institute (IPFN) in the Kuala Lumpur Hospital here.
Inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar said police had also not received any DNA sample from his family members in connection with the killing which has attracted the attention of international media.
"We are still waiting while media reports claim his next-of-kin has arrived in Malaysia. To say such things is not right," he told Bernama through a WhatsApps message.
Inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar has dismissed the claim that the Indonesian suspect in the murder case of Kim Jong-nam was framed.
“People can say whatever they want, but our investigation shows otherwise.
“The reason we are still detaining her and the other suspects is not because we are basing it on a hunch or suspicions plucked from thin air.
