Evidence “credible” in Kim Jong Nam murder case, trial to continue: judge

Defense loses acquittal bid in case which could see accused face death penalty

Evidence presented in the trial of two women accused of last year's murder of Kim Jong Nam is "credible," a Malaysian high court judge ruled Thursday afternoon, meaning the months-long case will continue.

Siti Aisyah, 26, from Indonesia, and Doan Thi Huong, 29, from Vietnam, both arrived at the Shah Alam courthouse in Kuala Lumpur before 0900 local time to hear the ruling from the judge, which came just before 1300 local time.
