Kate Moir Petitions for Changes to Parole Legislation

Thursday 10th November / presented by Antonino Tati

30 years ago today, Kate Moir was kidnapped by David and Catherine Birnie.

She managed to escape and inform the police, leading to the capture of the Birnies and the end of their killings.

David Birnie committed suicide in prison 11 years ago, while Catherine Birnie remains incarcerated, where she’s eligible for a parole hearing every three years.

Kate Moir is now petitioning for a change in laws that would end the three-year parole eligibility, and joined The Mag with Antonino Tati to discuss those efforts.
