KUALA LUMPUR: The Inspector-General of Police has refuted Ri Jong-chol’s (pic) allegation that authorities threatened to kill his family unless he confessed to the assassination of Kim Jong-nam.

Labelling this as nonsense, Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said Jong-chol would not have been detained if he was not a person of interest in the murder investigation. 

“He was treated the same as any other suspect in the case,” he told The Star yesterday.
