KUALA LUM PUR — A Malaysian court on Thursday announced it would temporarily postpone the trial of Vietnamese citizen Đoàn Thị Hương, a suspect in the murder of a North Korean national in 2017, due to her health condition, Vietnam News Agency reports. After the trial was postponed, Hương met with Vietnamese Ambassador to Malaysia Lê Quý Quỳnh. She thanked the Party, State and the Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia for their help and support. Ambassador Quỳnh said lawyers and the Vietnamese Embassy would try their best to support Hương and that the Vietnamese Government and Embassy hope the Malaysian court will give Hương a fair trial and quickly release her from custody. At a trial in August 2018, the Malaysian court declared they had collected sufficient evidence to indicate the two women and four North Korean suspects who fled the country had taken part in a scheme to murder the man.
