Tracy Chapman started this petition to Mr Mark Speakman (NSW Attorney General) and

Kathleen Folbigg has already spent over 18 years behind bars in maximum-security prisons.  But science has proven she did not kill her children and we are calling on The Attorney General of NSW, Mark Speakman, to recommend the pardon and immediate release of Kathleen.

In 2003, Kathleen Folbigg was convicted of the murder of three of her children and the manslaughter of a fourth. In November 2020, 27 world-leading scientists published a study in an Oxford University journal which concludes that the two female Folbigg children likely died - with 90-95% certainty - from having a lethal cardiac mutation. The two male Folbigg children possess rare epileptic gene mutations which are currently under scientific investigation.

This new evidence is now supported by over 150 world leading scientists and medical experts who are calling for Kathleen Folbigg's immediate release from prison. The new groundbreaking genetic evidence further supports the evidence given by leading forensic pathologists that all four children died of natural causes. World recognised Forensic Pathologist, Professor Stephen Cordner concluded "Simply, there is no forensic pathology support for the contention that any or all of these children have been killed. Let alone smothered."

To Mark Speakman, the Attorney General for NSW, Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Sexual Violence and Member for Cronulla, continuing to deny the truth does not change the facts! You have more than enough factual supportive evidence before you now to recommend the immediate release of Kathleen from prison! Our faith in the NSW criminal legal system decreases each day that passes by that you do not act to immediately pardon and release Kathleen Folbigg.

Please sign this petition to support Ms Folbigg’s immediate release. Ms Folbigg’s case is not just about one woman who has been imprisoned for crimes she did not commit; it is also about requiring the criminal legal system to listen to science and supports calls for the legal and scientific communities to work more closely together to ensure evidence placed before the courts is reliable and accurately presented and understood by all those involved in such cases.
