PETALING JAYA: Putrajaya Hospital has handed over four diplomatic passports and valuables belonging to slain Kim Jong-nam to Sepang police.

Sources said the passports – one red and three blue ones – were used by Jong-nam, who had often travelled under the name of Kim Chol.

The hospital also handed over foreign currencies in various denominations, credit cards and valuables belonging to him.

Jong-nam was brought to Putrajaya Hospital after the attack at KLIA2.

His body was transferred to Hospital Kuala Lumpur for a post-mortem, which was completed on Wednesday.

North Korean Embassy officials had requested that no post-mortem be carried out but Malaysian authorities turned down the request. The body will be handed over to the North Koreans to be passed to the next of kin.
