Don’t forget to watch Australian Story tonight
Today’s the big day for the team behind Justice For Kathleen Folbigg.
Australian Story will feature the latest on Kathy’s story tonight at 8pm.
Here are the first few paragraphs from an article on the ABC site:
Almost every day about 9.30am, Tracy Chapman’s phone rings. “Kath” is the name that flashes up on the screen but before either woman can speak, a robotic American voice interjects.
“You are about to receive a phone call from an inmate at Cessnock Correctional Centre. Your conversation will be recorded and may be monitored. If you do not wish to receive this call, please hang up now.”
Tracy Chapman never hangs up. “Good morning bub, how are you?” she says to her friend, convicted serial killer Kathleen Folbigg.
Since May 2003 when a New South Wales Supreme Court jury found Folbigg guilty of the murder of three of her infant children and the manslaughter of another, their conversation mostly has been banal — chitchat about Folbigg’s daily routines, about the laundry or cleaning or other inmates.
But for the past three years, their conversations have increasingly focused on Folbigg’s frustrations about the NSW Government’s delay in considering her lawyers’ petition for a judicial review of her case.
