North Korea denies involvement

The next hearing will take place on April 1.

Four North Koreans who fled Malaysia for an unknown destination shortly after the assassination were also charged in absentia with the murder. The Interpol has issued red notices asking governments to send them back to face trial.

North Korea has consistently denied involvement in the killing, though US, South Korean and Malaysian authorities have said Pyongyang was responsible.
