Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The Government of Indonesia, after conducting an analysis, has confirmed that the fingerprints of Siti Aisyah, suspected of murdering a North Korean in Malaysia, conform to the passport she was holding.

"The verification result confirms that the Aisyahs fingerprints match with the data of the passport she is holding now," Director of Indonesian Citizens Protection of Ministry of Foreign Affairs Lalu Muhammad Iqbal said in a release here on Saturday (Feb. 25).

A team of Indonesian Citizens Protection Directorate and the lawyers met Aisyah in the Cyberjaya Police Office on Saturday at 10:30 am Kuala Lumpur local time after the Malaysian government granted a consular access to the suspect.

The meeting was done in two phases.

During the first phase, the envoys conducted a fingerprint scanning to verify Aisyahs citizenship.

In the second phase, consular officers met Aisyah to know her state of health and condition.

The officers also asked her permission to provide legal assistance for the appointed lawyer.

She was also explained about her legal rights and asked whether she wished to pass on any messages for her family in Indonesia.

After the visit, it was reported that Aisyah was in a good health condition and had received proper treatment from the local authority.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs would deliver several information along with Aisyahs message to her family in Serang District, Indonesia.

Since Aisyah has agreed to be provided a legal assistance from the appointed lawyer, the Indonesian Embassy representatives expected the Malaysian government to cooperatively inform any development on the case to the appointed lawyer.

Aisyah was detained by Royal Malaysian Police on Feb 13. Her detention was extended for seven days until March 1.

Jong-nam, a 45-year-old man, was allegedly killed by two women, who splashed some chemical liquid on his face, at the departure terminal of Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 on Monday (Feb 13) at around 9 a.m. local time before leaving for Macau.
