Official denies son of Kim Jong-nam is in Taiwan

Taipei, The head of Taiwan's National Immigration Agency (NIA) on Thursday denied news reports that the son of the North Korean leader's brother may be hiding in Taiwan after his father had been assassinated in Malaysia.

Kim Han-sol did not enter Taiwan, said NIA Director-General Ho Jung-chun (???).

Ho added, however, that he did not know whether Kim was in Taiwan during transit.

News reports in South Korea and Japan said that Kim Han-sol arrived in Taiwan on February 15, two days after his father Kim Jong-nam died in an assassination at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

The assassination is widely believed to have been carried out with the authorization of Kim Jong-nam's half brother Kim Jong-un, the top leader of the North Korean regime.

Some of the reports also said that Kim Han-sol and his family have since been granted shelter in the Netherlands.
