NSW court jury declares Indian-origin parents guilty for baby’s eczema death

SYDNEY - A New South Wales Supreme Court jury of eight women and four retired men took a little over 24 hours to declare a homeopath and his wife guilty of the manslaughter of their baby daughter by failing to get her proper medical treatment.

Thomas Sam, 42, and his wife, Manju Sam, 37, pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter of their nine-month-old daughter Gloria in Sydney.

They were accused of “gross criminal negligence” by failing to get conventional medical treatment for Gloria, who died three days after being taken to a Sydney hospital on May 5, 2002.

The severely malnourished baby - who had been properly fed - died from an infection her body could not fight because all her nutrition had gone into coping with her extensive eczema.

NSW Justice Peter Johnson is to formally sentence the couple.(ANI)

    Dear concerns in Australia’s court, regarding baby gloria’s death did you ask them “what is their faith?” from which background they are coming from? what about the second baby’s condition one who is living?? that means you are killing every body with your judgement.Then why you are allowing homeopathy in your country? if homeopath doctor can’t do anything? he have faith what he had studied. How many persons are daily dieing inthe conventional hospitals with their treatment?? according to this judgement you are killing the whole family again??how you can say they are guilty??they tried their level best to rescue the baby.But nobody is admitting this. you go & stay with them &see how they are caring the baby & eachother too. Moreover they have faith & praying to GOD that HE will heal the baby completely.they are so many incidents i can say,So, I request court that please rethink & take decesionplease & fogive them. thanks
