Filipina murdered in Sweden
Justice for Mailyn Conde Sinambong!
Migrante Europe strongly condemns the brutal killing of Mailyn Conde Sinambong in her residence in Kista, Stockholm, Sweden at 11:30 in the evening of Sunday, September 23.
According to initial reports, the suspect is Mailyn’shusband, Steve Aron Bakre Aalam, a Swedish national, who confessed to the crime and is now in the custody of Swedish authorities on probable grounds suspected of murder.
Mother’s cry for help
According to Migrante Central Visayas Coordinator Connie Bragas Regalado, the mother of the victim, Maria Conde Sinambong, accompanied by her relatives, visited the Migrante office in Cebu to report the incident and seek help.
The family revealed that there were already incidents of violence by the suspect against Mailyn and their son when they were still residing in Cebu, Philippines.
In 2010, the Mailyn, Aalam and their two children, transferred to Sweden. Just newly arrived in Sweden, Mailyn was reportedly beaten by her husband. But according to Maria, her daughter Mailyn said very little regarding her real situation.
The family demands an immediate investigation surrounding the death of Mailyn and is calling for the Duterte government to provide assistance in immediately repatriating Mailyn’s remains.
Meanwhile, Migrante Europe has already communicated with its network in Sweden and the Philippine Consul in Sweden, with hopes of receiving news and urgent assistance regarding the death of Mailyn.
