SEPANG: North Korea’s Ambassador to Malaysia Kang Chol, who was declared Persona Non Grata by the Malaysian government, today left the country following the expulsion order on him.
He left from the KL International Airport (KLIA) at 6.35pm on Malaysia Airlines Flight MH360 to Beijing.
Malaysia’s Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman on Saturday had announced that the Malaysian Government had declared Kang Chol as Persona Non Grata and gave him 48 hours from 6pm on 4 March to leave the country.
In making the announcement, Anifah said Malaysia would act firmly against any insult to the country or any any attempt to tarnish its image.
Kang Chol had made wild and baseless claims about Kuala Lumpur in connection with the investigations into the murder of North Korean national Kim Chol at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) on 13 February.
