North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's half brother Kim Jong-nam was a spy for American intelligence, the Wall Street Journal reported, saying he was in Malaysia to meet his CIA handler in February 2017.
Prosecutors told the court they made the offer of a reduced charge after receiving representations from the Vietnamese embassy and the woman's lawyers.
Siti Aisyah accused in the 2017 killing of the North Korean leader's half-brother was released from custody on Monday after a Malaysian court dropped a murder charge against her.
Siti Aisyah from Indonesia and Doan Thi Huong from Vietnam have been on trial since October 2017, accused of murdering Kim Jong-nam by smearing the nerve agent VX on his face at Kuala Lumpur airport.
Two women – Indonesian citizen Siti Aisyah and Vietnamese citizen Doan Thi Huong – stand accused of killing the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at a Kuala Lumpur airport on February 13 last year.
The high-profile trial of two women accused of killing estranged, half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong -un at Kuala Lumpur airport continues in Malaysia.
Top official at CIA's Korea Mission Center says Kim's focus is to stay in power.
Two women, accused of assassinating the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, entered a plea of "not guilty" in a Malaysian murder trial.
Two women were arrested days after the killing of Kim Jong-nam on February 13 as he was due to board to Macau at Kuala Lumpur airport.
The two women, who allegedly murdered the North Korean leader's half-brother, deny carrying out the killing.
The case transferred to high court as the lower court had no jurisdiction to hear the murder case.
