"We want to know whether she was part of the network that had planned to murder the North Korean or was just a mere victim recruited without her knowledge. This is what we want to ask our colleagues in the Malaysian police force," Indonesia Police chief General Tito Karnavian said after making a courtesy call on Malaysian police (PDRM) chief Inspector General Khalid Abu Bakar in Putrajaya here on Saturday.
Tito stated that if indeed she was part of the network, he would only wish to provide her legal assistance.
"We respect the existence and legal sovereignty of Malaysia. It is the similar as they also honor our legal system," he added.
However, if she was merely a victim, there must be an explanation, and legal aid would thus be provided, he pointed out.
"The indications are that after she performed what she considered a reality show, she returned to the airport to receive a pay of $100 for her act. If she was really a part of the conspiracy, she would have run from the beginning and would not have returned to face the risk of arrest," he revealed.
Tito noted that he would continue communicating with Malaysia based on the principles of mutual respect. (Ant).
