SEOUL, KOMPAS.TV – KThe brother of slain North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Kim Jong-nam, is reportedly a South Korean intelligence informant.
As reported by the South Korean broadcaster SBS, Kim Jong-nam has often provided information to South Korean intelligence.
Kim Jong-nam is the eldest son of former North Korean leader Kim Jong-il.
He was killed using VX nerve agent while at Kuala Lumpur International Airport in February 2017.
Kim Jong-un is said to have ordered his brother’s assassination.
Kim Jong-nam himself is not a respected figure in North Korea.
He was forced to live in exile, after previously being caught carrying a fake passport when he went to Disneyland, Tokyo, Japan.
Kim Jong-nam is also not very well liked by the North Korean government, because it is believed that he will make a number of changes that tend to open up the country, if he is appointed as North Korean leader.
In addition, previously there were rumors that Kim Jong-nam had connections with the CIA.
