Kim Jong-un’s rich playboy nephew disappears after ‘secret meeting with CIA’

Kim Jong-un's playboy nephew reportedly disappeared after holding a secret meeting with the CIA.

Kim Han-sol is the eldest son of the North Korea dictator's half brother Kim Jong-nam – who had been a critic of the country's regime and who was assassinated in Malaysia on orders of Kim Jong-un in 2017.

Considered by some to be the rightful heir of the former Great Leader, Han Sol was aided in escaping following the death of his dad by North Korea dissident group Free Joseon.

After his dad's death, Han-sol is said to have called in the help of Adrian Hong, leader of the group, after he noticed "police who typically guarded his house had disappeared".

Fearing for his life, he contacted the group and told them he needed to "get out of Macau as soon as possible".

He is said to have met members of the group in Tapei, Taiwan, two days after his dad was killed.

There it is claimed he boarded a plane to seek asylum in Amsterdam, but is said to have never arrived there.

Mr Hong, speaking about Han-sol to the New Yorker, said he'd “never met a kid with so much money. Kim Jong Nam had stashed away a lot of cash during his life.”

Han-sol "wears Guccis shoes" and "carried wads of cash", Adrian added.

Photos believed to show the playboy nephew of the North Korea leader often show him wearing fancy designer outfits and donning sparkling earrings.

Han-sol's last public appearance was a video clip released by Free Joseon in the weeks following his dad's death.

During the 40-second video, he said: "My name is Kim Han-sol, from North Korea, part of the Kim family. Here's my passport.

"My father has been killed a few days ago. I'm currently with my mother and my sister."

The New Yorker reports being told by multiple sources that the CIA took Han Sol and his family elsewhere, though it is unclear exactly where.

It is alleged that two CIA agents attempted to intercept him in Tapei and he was later taken into protective custody and remains hidden.

Han-sol's dad died after being attacked with the VX nerve agent while he was walking though Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

At least four North Korean suspects fled the country and were able to reach Pyongyang without ever being arrested.

Two women were charged with murder – but claimed they had been recruited as part of a "TV prank".
