Malaysia AirportsKeeping passengers’ security and safety as their priority, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd announced that is committed to extend its full cooperation to the police and relevant authorities on any actions required to ensure the safety of airport users.

 

Its managing director Badlisham Ghazali said the airport operator had been engaging closely with all the relevant parties, such as the Health Ministry, to facilitate any measures that were required.

 

The statement was issued following the disclosure that a highly toxic substance was used in the murder of a North Korean national at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (klia2).

 

“Our priority is always to ensure passengers’ security and safety,” he said in a statement issued by Malaysia Airport in Sepang yesterday (February 24th).

 

Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar revealed yesterday that the substance, believed to have been used in the murder of Kim Jong-nam on Feb 13, was ‘VX nerve agent’, which is listed as a chemical weapon.

 

Jong-nam was at klia2 on Feb 13 to board a flight to Macau when two women suddenly appeared before him and wiped his face with the palms of their hands which contained a poisonous liquid.

 

Jong-nam, who travelled with a passport bearing the name Kim Chol, sought help at a customer service counter at the airport and was rushed to the Putrajaya Hospital but died on the way.

The airport operator said they had in place a standard daily cleaning process that involved scrubbing the floor using the Ride-On-Scrubber machine with multipurpose cleaning chemical and water and the process was performed six times daily at klia2 terminal.
