Detailed Notes on The issue of the release of Kim Jong NamWith the release of a Vietnamese woman accused of murdering North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's half-brother Kim Jong Nam, the issue is likely to escalate into a diplomatic conflict between Malaysia and Vietnam.
Prosecutors in Malaysia announced on Wednesday that they will continue the trial without canceling charges against Vietnamese citizen Doan Thi Hulung on charges of murder.
The decision contrasts with the sudden release of a 27-year-old Indonesian woman, City Aisha, on the same charge three days ago.
The Vietnamese government has been making all-out efforts through diplomatic channels to ensure that the city is also free after its sudden release.
Considering the fact that the prosecutor in charge of the assassination of Kim Jong Nam said, "We were instructed to proceed with the case on March 11 regarding the petition submitted to the prosecutor general," the Vietnamese government seems to have been in contact with Malaysian authorities since the day of the release of the city.
Vietnamese Foreign Minister Pam Bin Min called Malaysian Foreign Minister Saifuddin Abdullah on the 12th to demand a fair trial and the release of Hulung, and the Vietnamese government is reportedly still holding talks with the Malaysian government.
On March 14, 2019, Vietnamese Ambassador to Vietnam Le Gut Gutting entered the High Court of Shahalam, Malaysia, where the trial of his own citizen, Thi Hulong, 31, female, will be held.
However, the Malaysian prosecution decided not to release him, and did not explain why.

"I don't know what's going on," he said, asking the judge to put off the trial again, complaining of tension and stress.
The Vietnamese government and people are strongly opposed.
Vietnamese Ambassador to Vietnam Le Gutting said he was "very disappointed" by the Malaysian Attorney General's decision. "We will make a fair ruling in Malaysia and ask her to be released as soon as possible."
On the Internet, the Malaysian government was criticized for discriminating against Indonesia and Vietnam.
Netizens are angry by posting comments in an article that stated that the release of the haze was denied, saying, "It is not fair to the owl," adding, "If he is arrested for the same act and is indicted together, the haggard should be released."
When he heard that the release of the haze had not been released from his home town, his father reportedly couldn't help sighing.
The father of a Vietnamese man, Doan Thi Hulong, 31, who was charged with murdering North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's half-brother Kim Jong Nam on March 14, 2019, lamented that his daughter's release from her Vietnamese home was not realized.
No official response from the Vietnamese government has been made yet.
However, some local diplomats predict that diplomatic conflicts between the two countries will be inevitable.
It is highly likely that the reason the Malaysian authorities did not release Hulung is because they were conscious of criticism that they put diplomatic interests before the rule of law.
When the Indonesian government returned home after the release of the city on Tuesday, the Indonesian government said it had achieved the release through a long-term diplomatic lobby, and touted the current administration's achievements.
Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamat denied the plan, saying he had only followed the legal process.
However, analysts say that Malaysia may have wanted to end the case at this point, citing that no ruling could have been in conflict with the relevant countries if the trial was to be carried out.
Indonesian media reported that City was more likely to be released than Hulung, citing a lawyer's remark that the jacket Kim was wearing had not been detected and the attack was not even captured by CCTV at the airport.
Indonesian city Aisha (27, female), who was arrested for murdering North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's half-brother Kim Jong Nam on the evening of March 12, 2019, is entering her hometown through reporters.
This is because the two men were handed a VX from North Korean suspects and attacked Kim Jong Nam with a front-to-back siege.
Some say that even if there was an official request from the Vietnamese government, they might be considering whether or not to release the owl for more time, fearing that the judicial authority would be impaired if he were released in just three days.
He was arrested on charges of killing Kim Jong Nam on February 13, 2017 at Kuala Lumpur International Airport with a chemical weapon on his face, but was used as a tool to kill when North Koreans told him to shoot hidden cameras for reality TV.
Four North Korean suspects who gave them VXs and put them on Kim Jong Nam's face left the country immediately and fled to the North.
North Korea says its people, not Kim Jong Nam, died of a simple heart attack, while North Korean suspects were only at the same airport by accident at the time of his death.
