Kim Jong Nam, who has lived outside North Korea for about 15 years and is believed to have met his younger half brother only once, was checking in for a flight at Kuala Lumpur airport last week when two women ambushed him, smearing some kind of substance on his face.
Malaysian detectives probing the assassination of Kim Jong-nam admitted today that they can not force a wanted North Korean diplomat to answer their questions.
North Korea is strongly denying claims that the women wiped a toxin on Jong-nam, and they have angrily objected to an autopsy being carried out.
Malaysian police on Wednesday said one suspect in the assassination, Hyon Kwang-song (44), is a second secretary at the embassy, while another, Kim Uk-iI (37), works for North Korean flag carrier Air Koryo.
"They've been called in for assistance".
"From our investigation we now know that they have made a few exercises to do that", said Bakar. "At the moment we can not trust the investigation by the Malaysian police", ambassador Kang Chol told reporters after talks at the foreign ministry.
"What others say about our diplomat are all lies and libellous slanders", a North Korean official told a horde of journalists camping outside the country's embassy.
"Minister Retno took the initiative to held a bilateral meeting, for one objective only, requesting consular access", Armanatha stated.
Having taken one into custody, they are searching for the seven others, although four are believed to have fled Kuala Lumpur shortly after the attack and are now believed to be back in Pyongyang.
Police have not stated Ri Jong Chol's role in the killing. He lived in Malaysia for three years without working at the company registered on his employment permit or receiving a salary.
The police chief said the women had practised the attack at two Kuala Lumpur shopping centres. Tensions between North Korea and Malaysia have grown in the aftermath of the murder of Kim Jong-nam in Kuala Lumpur airport in Malaysia.
The health ministry official said no DNA samples had been received from the next of kin.
"In all civilized nations, it is the norm for cases such as these to be comprehensively investigated", Anifah said.
"The biggest responsibility for his death rests with the government of Malaysia as the citizen of the DPRK died in its land", KCNA said, using the acronym for the North's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
He also said a heavily armed special police force was deployed to the morgue holding Kim Jong Nam's body after police detected an attempt to break into the facility.
No family member has come forward to claim Mr Kim's body.
The statement added that it was not possible for the women to daub poison on Mr Kim's face with their hands.
An attache at the North Korean Embassy in Kuala Lumpur responds to media personnel from the premises on Thursday.
Two women, one of them Indonesian and the other travelling on a Vietnamese passport, and a boyfriend of one of them, have already been held on suspicion of involvement in the case.
Police say the substance used remains unknown, but it was potent enough to kill Kim before he could make it to a hospital.
