Kim Han-sol ditches Oxford over assassination fears

Kim Han-sol, son of the assassinated Kim Jong-nam, allegedly cancelled plans to attend Oxford University over fears of North Korea’s continued hostility, UK media outlet The Daily Mail reported Sunday.

According to The Mail, Kim Han-sol was due to move to the UK after reportedly being offered a place at an Oxford graduate college for the term starting September.

His girlfriend Sonia also studies at Oxford.

However, the 20-something has given up the plan and is staying in Macau under the protection of the Chinese government since the assassination of his father in Malaysia last week.

Kim Han-sol’s father is widely assumed to have been killed under the orders of his half brother Kim Jong-un, the tyrannical head of North Korea.

Kim Han-sol received a diploma in politics last year from Le Havre campus of Sciences Po university in France.
