This morning Kyle and Jackie O had an exclusive chat with Sally Faulkner, nine months after the botched kidnapping that saw Sally and the 60 Minutes crew attempt to retrieve her children from Lebanon.

During our chat, Sally spoke about her final moments with her children, before she was taken home to Australia, she revealed that she was given an hour with her children, but it was shortened to 45 minutes because her ex, Ali Elamine, had an interview with The Project.

She also revealed that reports she has been in constant communication with her children, which came from Elamine, are completely false.

She hasn’t spoken to her children since she had that 45 minutes with them in Lebanon nine months ago.

Then, she revealed that before she left, he answered the question everyone is asking themselves, why is he doing this to her?


“I’m doing this because I love you.” That’s what he said to her before she left on 

“I don’t understand what’s actually going through his head. To completely disconnect the children from their mother for no good reason is absolutely insane to me. And it’s wrong.”

Sally Faulkner has started a GoFundMe page to help raise the money needed to get her children back. If you want to help, you can donate by clicking the link.
