Macau lose a illustrious resident: two amazons kill Kim Jong-nam (김정남) in KL.
Macau has lost one his most famous resident. Kim Jong-nam (김정남) Born on 10 May 1971 in Pyongyang, North Korea died apparently poisoned by two North Korean female “Amazons” he was born on 13 February 2017 in Sepang Malaysia.
He was the son of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il and was the brother of Kim Jong-un. He leaves behind 3 children.
He has been leaving in exile in Macau, Singapore and Malaysia trying to escape from his murderous half brother.
He was described as “hot-tempered, sensitive, and gifted in the arts.” He loved films.
In my latest book The Dew of Heaven set in Macau and Hong Kong there are 2 female agents ‘nicknamed’ the Amazons which do play an important part in it. This is the third truth-twist I am experiencing, where reality seems to catch up with fiction…
Kim Jong-nam paid several visits in disguise to Tokyo red light distric but in May 2001, he was arrested on arrival at Narita International Airport accompanied by two women and a four-year-old boy identified as his son. He was traveling on a forged Dominican Republic passport using a Chinese alias, Pang Xiong, which means “fat bear” in Mandarin.
Until the Tokyo incident, Kim was expected to be the next leader of the Country after his father. In February 2003, some signals were intercepted in South Korea indicating that he was being replaced and it is believed that Kim Jong-un became the new heir apparent due to this particular incident which did embarrass his late father, by late 2003 he was spotted several times in Macau.
Kim says he fell out of favour because he had become an advocate for reform after being educated in Switzerland, leading his father to decide that he had turned “into a capitalist”.
Kim Jong-nam had been living incognito with his family in Macau, for more than three years, and this was a cause of some embarrassment to both the Macanese and Chinese governments, since he was carrying a Portuguese passport, perhaps fake, and he had 2 wives and one mistress living with him while spending lavishing on gambling, prostitution, drinks and food.
In June 2010, Kim Jong-nam gave a brief interview to the Associated Press in Macau while waiting for a hotel elevator. He told the reporter that he had “no plans” to defect to Europe, as the press had recently rumoured, until 2007 he was living in an apartment on the southern tip of Macau’s Coloane Island.
After the death of his uncle, Jiang Song Thaek and aunt, Kim Kyong-Hui, in Korea he was described as a dead man walking but not to enrage China the two killer “Amazons” had to wait and carry out their evil task outside Macau.
