No comparison DNA test done on Jong Nam

She said blood tests on the two women accused of murdering Kim showed normal enzyme levels, but this may not conclusively show they were not exposed to VX because the women may have been in contact with a low concentration level or have decontaminated themselves by washing their hands with soap or taking an antidote.

Defendants Siti Aisyah and Doan Thi Huong allegedly wiped banned VX poison on Kim Jong Nam's face in an assassination thought to have been ordered by the North Korean leader.

Questioned several times on whether Kim Chol died from a heart attack, Shah maintained the finding that the victim died due to VX poisoning.

The witness was testifying at the trial of 25-year-old Indonesian Siti Aisyah and 28-year-old Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, who are both charged with four others still at large with the murder of Kim at the departure hall of the KL International Airport 2 (KLIA2) at 9am on Feb 13.

Prosecutors are asking Malaysia's High Court to restore expunged details in the post-mortem report in the poisoning death of the estranged half brother of North Korea's leader.

Police Probe Whether Vegas Shooter Eyed Space Near Earlier Festival
The Daily Beast says the source is not directly involved in the investigation, but has been privy to briefings on its progress. That festival ran from September 22 to September 24, just days before the October 1 attack on the Route 91 Harvest festival .

The hearing continues Thursday before Justice Azmi Ariffin.

Prosecutors also sought Wednesday to show VX was the sole cause of death.

A chemical pathologist called to the stand on Tuesday (Oct 3) said blood tests done on the two female suspects showed that their cholinesterase enzyme levels were normal while that for the victim was low. The passport used Kim's pseudonym, Kim Chol. He also said the autopsy found no sign Kim had a heart attack. But based on his examination and toxicology and chemist reports, he said there were no contributing factors to Kim's death apart from VX.

When re-examined by deputy public prosecutor Mohamad Mustaffa P Kunyalam, Shah reiterated that the main cause of Kim Chol's death was from the VX nerve agent.

However, he concurred with Gooi on the possibility that the VX poison was injected into Kim Chol, but it was hard to detect the injection as the victim's body was full of tattoos.

Under cross-examination by defense lawyers, Mohamad Shah acknowledged he had limited knowledge of VX and nerve agents in general.

He said the individual poisoned with the nerve agent would have a very slim chance of survival.

"There are two reasons (why qualitative data is enough in VX case), the first being that VX nerve agent is not available naturally, and secondly, VX (was made) only for one use, which is as a chemical weapon listed under the Chemical Weapons Convention 1997 list".

No DNA comparison was conducted on the identity of Kim Chol (Kim Jong Nam), the High Court was told today.

Kim then fell unconscious and his blood pressure plunged, and his pulse gave out, Nik said. He was later pronounced dead on arrival at a hospital.
