The ministry’s Spokesperson, Le Thi Thu Hang, made the statement at a regular press conference in Hanoi on April 25 in response to reporters’ queries about Vietnam’s preparations to support Huong, who involved in the case related to the murder of a man holding a Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) passport with the name of Kim Chol.

The Malaysia’s Shah Alam High Court (MLS) on April 1 sentenced Doan Thi Huong to three years and four months imprisonment on the charge of causing injuries using dangerous means, instead of the initial charge of murder. The penalty is calculated starting from the time Doan Thi Huong was arrested on February 15, 2017.

According to Japan’s Kyodo News, Huong’s lawyer Naran Singh on April 13 said she will be released on May 3.

He told Kyodo News in a short phone text that the Malaysia prisons department has confirmed Doan Thi Huong, 30, will be released on that day from the women's prison in Kajang, on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur.
