A video of a man who said he was the son of the murdered North Korean Kim Jong-nam, has surfaced on Youtube.

The video titled KHS Video was uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday under the username Cheollima Civil Defense, a group claiming to offer safe haven to North Koreans and protecting the Kim Jong-nam family members.

In the video, the man says: “My name is Kim Han Sol, from North Korea, part of the Kim family. My father has been killed a few days ago. I’m currently with my mother and my sister. We are very grateful to ….” The audio is cut off at this point.

In the 40-second video, the man shows his passport as proof as to who he claims to be. The particulars on the passport however have been blacked out.

The family of the deceased is yet to claim the body from Malaysia, and this may be the reason of the flareup between Malaysia and North Korea.

An expert in international law told The Independent that the issue could be resolved if the family, which has priority in this case, would officially claim the body of Kim Jong-nam.

That would nullify North Korea’s claims that Malaysia has to release the body to Pyongyang since the deceased is a North Korean citizen.
