An Australian woman has been pardoned after spending 20 years in prison for the deaths of her four children. The pardon was granted by the New South Wales state authorities after a judicial review found reasonable doubt about the sentence handed down. As reported by Reuters, Monday (5/6/2023), this woman named Kathleen Megan Folbigg was found guilty in 2003, for the murder of her three children and for the involuntary murder of her fourth child. During the trial, Folbigg pleaded not guilty and insisted that his children died of natural causes.[1]

An initial 2019 investigation found evidence to corroborate Folbigg's guilt. But a second inquiry led by former justice Thomas Bathurst revisited the 2002 conviction after new evidence suggested two of Folbigg's children had a genetic mutation that could have caused their deaths. On Monday (5/6) local time, the Attorney General for the state of New South Wales, Michael Daley, pardoned Folbigg after the findings of an investigation by Bathrust found reasonable doubt in any sentencing.[2]

"Today's results are confirmation that our judicial system is capable of delivering justice, and demonstrates that the rule of law is an important foundation of our democratic system," Daley said in announcing his pardon. "Given everything that has happened over the last 20 years, it's impossible not to feel some sympathy for Kathleen and Craig Folbigg," he added.[3] And if you have any legal issue in Indonesia territory, contact us then, feel free in 24 hour, we will be happy to assist you.
