Siti Aisyah, her attorney Selvi Sandrasegaram, Doan Thi Huong, and two police officers sat in a small enclosed room while expert chemist Raja Subramaniam testified through the morning phase. The judge, prosecutors, and other defense lawyers for the two women listened from an attached room that was separated by glass.
The trial was due to resume after a lunch break at the court building as the defense lawyers planned to cross-examine the government chemist.
The two women accused in the February assassination of Kim Jong-nam, made their first appearance in a Malaysian court Friday. The two arrived under heavy guard, wearing bulletproof vests for their appearance. Claiming they were duped into believing they were participating in a reality tv show, they plead not guilty. A trial date has been set for October 2, 2017.
