Distraught mother seeks help repatriating ‘slain’ relatives

Sarapee Song-ngam, 60, met foundation chairwoman Paveena Hongsakul at her office in Pathum Thani to ask for help in bringing back home the bodies of Pimsiri, 37, and Petch Song-ngam, 12. She said she wanted to bring their bodies home to hold a funeral in Thailand.

Ms Sarapee said on Monday (Aug 29) that she was told by one of Pimsiri’s friends that Pimsiri and Petch were found dead in a house in Kirkenes.

Pimsiri’s husband, a Norwegian national, is suspected of killing her and her son, who is from a previous marriage, Ms Sarapee said, adding he tried to commit suicide but police foiled the attempt.

The husband sustained severe gunshot wounds and was admitted to hospital for treatment, she added.

Ms Sarapee said Pimsiri divorced her ex-husband and married a Norwegian man she identified only as Hazzan and moved to Norway to live with him.

Pimsiri had worked as a custodian at a school and took her son from Thailand to live with her in Norway.

Pimsiri and her Norwegian husband had often argued about his drinking habit, she added.

Ms Sarapee said she had sought help from the Protection of Thai Nationals Abroad Division of the Consular Affairs Department which told her to wait as an investigation into the killing is under way.

Ms Paveena consoled Ms Sarapee as she was speaking to her yesterday.

Ms Paveena said she would ask the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to step up efforts to bring the bodies back home.

She would ask Interpol to help follow up on the investigation, she added.

Ms Paveena said she will take Ms Sarapee to meet the director-general of the Department of Consular Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs today (Sept 1) to ask for help.

She said she is confident that officials there will work on visa procedures for Ms Sarapee and her son to travel to Norway to receive the bodies.
