In a statement, the DFA said it has already assured Sinambong's family that the body would be immediately flown into the Philippines, and that the government will be working to ensure that justice is served.

"Secretary Cayetano has given assurances that all the necessary assistance shall be extended to Mailyn's family to not only immediately reunite her with her loved ones in the Philippines but also to ensure that justice would be served," the DFA statement said. 

According to the DFA, initial information revealed that Sinambong was killed on Sunday, September 23, and that her husband is now in the custody of Swedish authorities.
