The Korea Times: Kim Jong-nam had offer to lead N. Korea's government-in-exile
North Korean defectors in Europe and the United States had offered Kim Jong-nam to serve as head of a government-in-exile, if one had been established, but he rejected the offer, according to sources, Tuesday.
"He was concerned that accepting such an offer may not help end hereditary succession of power in the repressive regime," a source said.
The source said Kim's paternal half-brother and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un may have ordered his death with suspicions that he may join the government-in-exile aimed at eventually overthrowing the regime.
One of the defectors' groups that made the proposals included International North Korean Association for Human Rights and Democracy in London.
