We have closely followed the case of Doan Thi Huong in relation to her role in the murder of Kim Jong-nam. Murder charges in her case have been dropped after she pleaded guilty to a lesser charge and she is expected to be freed by the Malaysian authorities in May 2019. The Foreign Secretary has not had discussions with his Malaysian counterpart on the legalities her specific case, however Foreign and Commonwealth Office officials in Kuala Lumpur continue to follow developments closely.

We have encouraged the Government of Malaysia to pursue a thorough investigation and to share information with the OPCW.
