Kim Jong Nam had 1.4 times lethal dose of VX on face at time of death: chemist

But some evidence was sent back to DPRK before defense could see it, court hears

Kim Jong Nam had well over the lethal dosage of the VX nerve agent on his face, a government chemist told a Malaysian court today, in the sixth day of the trial of the two women accused of Kim's murder.

0.2 milligrams of VX per kilogram of body weight on the skin on his face represented "about 1.4 times the lethal dosage," Dr. Raja Subramanian said.
