Emotions run high as Kathleen Folbigg inquiry recommences
Friends of Kathy visited her at Silverwater Correctional Complex today prior to the second week of the inquiry into her convictions.
They hugged her tightly, knowing how difficult she found the first week of the inquiry.
Kathy watched the proceeding alone via video link each day. She admitted it was incredibly tough to listen to details of the autopsies that were performed on her children. Some of the information provided in court had not been heard before, such as the fact her daughter Laura was subjected to a second, incredibly invasive autopsy.
This week has been set aside to hear evidence relevant to genetics, cardiology and neurology.
The week beginning Monday, April 29, 2019 has been set aside for Kathy to give evidence about her diary entries. The evidence from Kathy will be restricted and the cross-examination of her will be restricted to those particular issues.
Naturally, Kathy feels anxious about appearing in court, but she is determined to speak for herself and her beloved children.
The substantive hearings will be held at the Forensic Medicine and Coroner’s Court complex located on 1A Main Avenue, Lidcombe.
She thanks everyone who has given their support, it has helped ease her pain during this difficult time.
