The police believe two North Korean men wanted to assist investigations into the murder of Kim Jong-nam are still within the North Korean embassy’s compound in Bukit Damansara, here. Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar who confirmed the matter to Bernama News Channel (BNC) through a WhatsApp message said the two men were the North Korean Embassy’s second secretary, Hyon Kwang-song, 44, and North Korean airline Air Koryo’s staff, Kim Uk-il, 37. When asked why the police did not raid the embassy to arrest the two men, Khalid said the police had to respect the Vienna Convention which protected the embassy grounds through diplomatic immunity and could not be compromised. He said an arrest warrant had already been issued for Uk-il last week, while the secretary had immunity from being arrested.
