  • A man introducing himself as Kim Jong-nam’s son has surfaced on You Tube
  • He confirmed his father’s death and even showed his passport
  • He claimed to be living now with his mother and sister in an undisclosed location

A video of a man introducing himself as the son of Kim Jong-nam, the slain estranged brother of North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-un, has emerged on You Tube on Tuesday, March 7.

An unknown group named Cheollima Civil Defense (CCD) is reportedly behind the 40-minute clip. The same group earlier claimed it had assisted ‘extracting’ the family of Kim Jong-nam from North Korea with the help of other nations.

In the video, the man said he is Kim Han-sol from North Korea and part of the Kim family. He also showed his passport, although the details were blackened.

“My father has been killed a few days ago. I’m currently with my mother and my sister. We are very grateful to…” he said, before the audio was cut-off.

Kim Han-sol, now in his early twenties, has been living in exile, particularly in Macau, with his mother and sister.

However, since Kim Jong-nam’s assassination last February 13 in Malaysia, the family is believed to have been hiding out of fear of being targeted by North Korean spies.

His son is said to have graduated from Sciences Po University in Paris and spoke good English.

The video ended with Kim Han-sol saying: “We hope this gets better soon.”
