The assurance, the DFA said in a statement, was conveyed to Consul General Ma. Elena Algabre of the Philippine Embassy in Oslo by Swedish prosecutor Malin Kühn during a meeting in Stockholm on Wednesday.


“We thank our Swedish friends for their assurances that our kababayan Mailyn and her family will obtain justice,” Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano said.

“This assurance means so much not only to the loved ones Mailyn left behind but to all Filipinos who are mourning with them,” he added.

Algabre also noted that the Embassy will also hire a lawyer to see how Sinambong’s mother in Cebu could secure custody of her 10-year-old son and four-year-old daughter.

Sinambong’s son is currently staying with his paternal uncle while her daughter is with the foster family that has been taking care of her since birth, the consul general said. /je
