BANGI: Malaysia is ready to share all information regarding Kim Jong Nam's assassination with international intelligence bodies, once the police conclude their investigation.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi says Malaysia needs to ensure that the information are solely from the detailed investigation carried out by the police, Health Ministry, Chemical Department and Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd.
Ahmad Zahid said the information that will be shared encompasses four aspects; DNA, forensics, lab reports and evidence from the CCTV footage.
"Malaysia is open to sharing (information) with them but they have to respect the country's legal and judicial systems," he said at a press conference after opening the Conference on Education and Social Affairs of the Islamic Consultative Council here today.
Ahmad Zahid was asked to comment on the reported suggestion by Britain for Malaysia to share with the UN information on the lethal VX nerve agent used to kill Jong-nam for the world body to take action against North Korea.
Jong Nam was at the KL International Airport 2 (klia2) at 8am on Feb 13 to board a flight to Macau an hour later when two women suddenly appeared before him and wiped his face with the palms of their hands which contained what was later identified as the VX nerve agent.
Jong Nam sought help at a customer service counter at the airport and was rushed to the Putrajaya Hospital but died on the way.
He had come to Malaysia on Feb 6 and carried a passport bearing the name Kim Chol.
