Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, who escaped the gallows after she pleaded guilty to an alternative charge in the murder case of North Korean Kim Jong-nam has been released from Kajang prison in Selangor on Friday morning.

Doan, who was sentenced to three years and four months' jail by the Shah Alam High Court, was entitled to a one-third remission on the prison sentence, which was ordered to run from the date of her arrest from 2017.

She is expected to board a flight to return to Hanoi later this evening.
