KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 25 — An unknown man believed to be from the Foreign Ministry turned up at the North Korean Embassy at 1.10pm today to hand over an envelope containing some documents.
The man, who wore a sleeveless blue shirt and black cap, was earlier seen loitering around the embassy holding a large envelope but when approached by reporters, he refused to say anything.
About 10 minutes earlier, embassy counsellor Kim Yu-song ordered the media to disperse as he said a car would be coming to the embassy to send some documents.
However, he refused to say who was sending the documents.
Later, Yu-song and another person returned to the embassy gates which remained closed, before they were approached by the individual in blue shirt who handed over an envelope on which the words ‘Seri Paduka Baginda’ were stamped with the national emblem to the counsellor.
Yu-song then signed a piece of paper which bore the words ‘Foreign Ministry’.
The man then hurriedly boarded a Proton Preve car bearing the plate number ASEAN, which was waiting nearby.
Yu-song has refused to comment when questioned by reporters on the contents of the envelope.
The media were gathered at the embassy to cover the murder case of Kim Jong-nam, the older half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
Jong-nam, was at KL International Airport 2 (KLIA2) at 8am on Feb 13 to board a flight to Macau when an hour later two women suddenly appeared before him and wiped his face with the palms of their hands which contained a poisonous liquid.
Jong-nam, who had come to Malaysia on Feb 6 and carried a passport bearing the name Kim Chol, died on the way to the Putrajaya Hospital. — Bernama.
