THE Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) welcomed the reassurance given by Swedish authorities that justice will be served in connection with the death of Mailyn Conde Sinambong last September 23.
Prosecutors from Sweden met Mailyn’s brother Angel Monato and cousin Maritchu Osabel during a meeting in Stockholm.
The two relatives were flown in from Cebu by the DFA Office of Migrant Workers Affairs (OMWA).
They were accompanied by Consul General Maria Elena Algabre from the Philippine Embassy in Oslo and OMWA Case Officer Suzette Aluag-Callo.
The Embassy arranged for the two relatives to view the remains of Mailyn and meet with all relevant Swedish authorities.
Sinambong, the 28-year-old mother of 2 boys, “succumbed to injuries she sustained after she was severely beaten to death allegedly by her husband,” the DFA said earlier.
The Filipina was married to 50-year-old Swedish actor-director Steve Abou Bakr Aalam.
