Are M’sians afraid of VX nerve agent?

12 days after the attack on the North Korean national at KLIA2 by two female suspects who had allegedly used the VX nerve agent on Kim Jong-nam, how do Malaysians feel?

Malaysiakini spoke to a staff member of the airport who said they were unaware of the screening operation carried out during the wee hours of the night.

“I am not aware of that actually. We have heard about the case but so far, there haven’t been any incidents since. Travellers and visitors still visit KLIA2 without any complaints,” the staff said on condition of anonymity.

Amira Arshad from Kedah said she was aware about the murder case has been following updates of the investigation in the papers.

When asked whether she was concerned with the use of VX nerve agent, she said, “I’m not afraid at all.”

However, Ridhwan, who works in an accounting firm said he was a little scared upon hearing that the nerve agent had been used on Jong-nam.

“I was quite scared. I think it will somehow affect Malaysia in terms of the relationship between the two countries with this incident.

“Although it happened more than a week ago, everything seems fine to me here,” Ridhwan said.

: Kim Jong-nam killing: ‘VX nerve agent’ found on his face

Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korea’s leader, was killed by a highly toxic nerve agent, says Malaysia.

Mr Kim died last week after two women accosted him briefly in a check-in hall at a Kuala Lumpur airport.

Malaysian toxicology reports indicate he was attacked using VX nerve agent, which is classified as a weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations.

There is widespread suspicion that North Korea was responsible for the attack, which it fiercely denies.

It responded furiously to Malaysia’s insistence on conducting a post-mortem examination and has accused Malaysia of having “sinister” purposes.

What does the toxicology report say?

Malaysia’s police chief Khalid Abu Bakar said on Friday that the presence of the nerve agent had been detected in swabs taken from Mr Kim’s eyes and face.

One of the women Mr Kim interacted with at the airport on 13 February had also fallen ill with vomiting afterwards, he added.

Mr Khalid said other exhibits were still under analysis and that police were investigating how the banned substance might have entered Malaysia.

“If the amount of the chemical brought in was small, it would be difficult for us to detect,” he said.
