Reports: Kim Jung Nam, older brother of Kim Jung Un is reportedly dead and suspicion surrounds the death of Kim Jung Nam
Kim Jung Nam, brother of Kim Jung Un confirmed dead.
He fell out with his father Kim Jung Il after he tried to sneak into Japan in 2001 with a fake passport.
Kim Jung Nam interviewed before Kim Jun Un took power – ” No, personally, I’m not interested in this issue[succeeding Kim Jung Il], I’m not interested in politics”.
He frequented casinos and nightclubs and his father Kim Jung Il paid for his lifestyle. Not Kim Jung Un. CNN, live in Pyeongyang, reports the name “Kim Jung Nam” is almost regarded as a taboo in North Korea and his death hasn’t been mentioned in the North Korean media so far.
Live from Pyeongyang, no North Korea reaction to the death of Kim Jung Un’s step brother, Kim Jung Nam.
One 28-year-old Vietnamese woman has been arrested in connection with the murder.
A North Korea car with diplomatic plate has been parked all day waiting for news of the autopsy of Kim Jung Nam, after officials arrested a 28-year-old Vietnamese female.
Getting real weird now. A 46 year old North Korean man has been arrested in connection to the death. Meanwhile, the Indonesian woman who was arrested claimed she thought she was carrying out a prank on him. North Korean ambassador also issued out a strongly worded statement, saying “North Korea will categorically reject the result of the post mortem” most likely because North Korea didn’t want any autopsy done on the body. Weird!
South Korea: “Highly likely” North Korea is behind Killing of Kim Jung Nam.
