Initial information gathered by the Philippine Embassy in Oslo showed that Sinambong died after sustaining injuries when she was being severely beaten allegedly by her husband, Steve Abou Bakr Aalam, a 50-year-old Swedish actor-director.

“The reports said Aalam has been taken into custody and will be charged with murder,” the DFA said in a statement.

The 28-year-old Sinambong, a mother of two, was killed on September 23, at their house in Kista, northwest of Stockholm, Sweden, the DFA said.

Consul General Ma. Elena Algabre is already in Stockholm to make arrangements for the repatriation of Sinambong’s remains and to meet with the lawyer and prosecutor handling the case.

A memorial mass for Sinambong was also organized by the Philippine Embassy in Oslo, in coordination with Filipino priests and the Filipino community in Stockholm.

The DFA has assured the family of Sinambong that “justice would be served” and that her body would be returned to the Philippines “immediately.” /jpv
