VGP – Vietnamese Minister of Justice Le Thanh Long has sent a letter to Malaysian Attorney General Tommy Thomas in which he asked the Malaysian side to consider freeing Vietnamese national Doan Thi Huong.

Huong and Siti Aisyah from Indonesia were accused of killing a citizen of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) in Malaysia in February 2017 but the latter was set free by the Malaysian side.

Both Huong and Siti Aisyah were induced in the case, leading to the death of the DPRK citizen.

Earlier on March 12, in a phone talks with Malaysian Foreign Minister Saifuddin Abdullah, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh also asked the Malaysian side to ensure fair trial and free Huong.

Minh affirmed senior leaders and people of Viet Nam have paid great attention to the trial process./.
