The verdict came after judge Azmi Ariffin announced at the April 1 trial a lesser charge for Huong, which was intentionally causing injuries using dangerous means instead of the previous charge of murder.

The trial was attended by Vietnamese Ambassador to Malaysia Le Quy Quynh.

Huong and an Indonesian woman named Siti Aisyah were accused of poisoning the DPRK citizen travelling under passport name of Kim Chol with liquid VX, a banned chemical weapon, at Kuala Lumpur airport in February 2017.

However, the Indonesian citizen was released on March 11 this year after the Malaysian court dropped the murder charge against her.
