Kim Jong Nam, the estranged half-brother of North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un, last living moments is immortalized on the recorded footage of his movements after being approached by two women who are now standing trial for his murder.
The testimony was used to back the prosecution's position that VX was used in the murder and was the sole cause of death, a scenario defence lawyers disputed this week.
The two migrant workers are accused of murdering Kim Jong Nam at a Kuala Lumpur airport on Feb. 13 by smearing his face with VX as he waited to board a flight to Macau.
The court adjourned at 4.50pm and will resume tomorrow with star witness Dr Raja Subraminiam, chemistry expert at the Chemical Weapons Centre.
The workers, 70 percent of whose salary is taken by North Korea's government, are essentially enslaved-they sleep on "metal bunk beds in fluorescent-lit Chinese dormitories", they must travel to the factory in pairs or groups, they have zero privacy, are not allowed to leave the compounds without permission, and have no access to phones or email.
North Korea has come out strongly against the U.S.'s stated "War on Terror", accusing Washington of using it as a pretext to overthrow hostile governments, including an alleged plot to oust North Korean leader Kim Jong Un himself in May.
According to the chemist, a person can fully decontaminate their hands by washing and scrubbing. "So, I do not see the divergence as strongly as some have interpreted it". She said Kim appeared to be in pain and told her someone sprayed liquid on his face. "His goal is to live a long time".
He had been living abroad for years and at the time of his death was traveling on a North Korean diplomatic passport under the name "Kim Chol".
The President recently said negotiating with Pyongyang was a 'waste of time', while he used his first address to the UN General Assembly in New York to pledge to 'totally destroy' the reclusive state if it threatens the US.
In retaliation, North Korea barred Malaysians from entering the country.
"We are no less anxious about it than you are".
Chemical pathologist Nur Ashikin Othman told the court Tuesday that tests on Kim's blood showed a very low level of 344 units per liter of cholinesterase enzyme, which breaks down neurotransmitters in the body that send signals to the brain and control the muscles.
Trump and Kim have, though, been engaged in a war of words by hurling nicknames at each other. Pyongyang responded and said the missile tests were a gift to the "American b*****ds". The bombers involved in these missions depart from Guam, the U.S. territory that North Korea threatened to target with a military strike in August.
"After Kim Jong-un delivered a personal address, emergency lecture sessions and speeches were held to inspire national unity and alert us to the current situation, but there weren't any noteworthy military movements", a source inside from Ryanggang Province told Daily NK.
