Australia's worst female serial killer is demanding a new investigation into her convictions after the $ 2.4 million investigation reinforced her debt.

Kathleen Folbigg was imprisoned for at least 25 years in 2003 for the murder of her children Patrick, Sarah and Laura – between the ages of eight months and 19 months – between 1991 and 1999.

She was also found guilty of the manslaughter of her first child, Caleb, who was 19 days old when he died in Newcastle in 1989.

The 52-year-old has maintained her innocence and claims that all four children died of natural causes.

Last year, the NSW government agreed to review the convictions and hearings were held in March and May this year.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that the investigation into Folbigg's convictions cost $ 2.4 million, with the announcement less than fourteen days after the ABC & # 39; s Australian Story audio program of her protested her innocence.

However, the New South Wales Attorney General, Mark Speakman, announced in August that the investigation revealed that they had & # 39; no reasonable doubt about Kathleen Megan Folbigg's guilt for the crimes for which she had been convicted & # 39 ;.

& # 39; It remains that the only conclusion that is reasonably open is that someone intentionally harmed the children, and smothering was obvious. The evidence pointed to none other than Mrs. Folbigg & # 39 ;, he said in his findings in July.

The legal team of the 52-year-old is expected to appear on Thursday at the Supreme Court of the NSW after an appeal for judicial review.

She wants a new investigation to be initiated so that it can then be submitted to the Court of Appeal.

The results of the investigation left Folbigg & # 39; deeply sad and confused & # 39; behind, friend Tracey Chapman told 7 News at the time.

She said that despite the findings, they would continue to fight to prove her innocence.

& # 39; I can assure you, it is not over yet. Only when this gross injustice is recognized are the beliefs destroyed and this broken, arrogant, prejudiced system apologizes for the treatment of Kath.

& # 39; We have the truth on our side and a growing number of supporters who are very frustrated. I said she should try to find some comfort in these facts. & # 39;

Mrs. Chapman has been friends with Folbigg, the & # 39; worst female serial killer in Australia & # 39; since the couple were six years old.

Reginald Blanch QC, the former chief judge of the NSW district court who chaired the investigation, concluded that he had no reasonable doubt about the child murderer's guilt.

Mr Blanch's report said: "The only reasonably reasonable conclusion is that someone has intentionally harmed the children, and niping was the obvious method."

& # 39; The evidence pointed to no one but Mrs. Folbigg, & # 39; said the report.

Folbigg & # 39; s evidence and transcripts from listening devices – which were not before the jury during the trial – showed that she had been untrue, unbelievable and & # 39; had made deliberate attempts to correct the fact that she had committed the crime cover up & # 39 ;, it said.

The Attorney General said that he had ordered the investigation, as the crown said during the trace of Folbigg that there had never been a case where three deaths in one family were attributed to unknown natural causes.

Under Folbigg's maximum sentence of 30 years, she will be eligible for conditional release in 2028.
