Akon Guode was jailed in 2017 for 26 years and six months after she drove into a Wyndham Vale lake, killing her four-year-old twins Hangar and Madit and 16-month-old son Bol.

She also pleaded guilty to the attempted murder of her daughter Alual, 5, who was in the car but survived after being pulled from the water.

That sentence, however, was slashed by Victoria's Court of Appeal in August 2018 to 20 years with a minimum of 14.

Prosecutors appealed the reduced sentence to the High Court but its judges ordered on Wednesday the appeal be dismissed because there was no error in the appeal court's reasoning.

Chief Justice Anne Ferguson and judges Phillip Priest and David Beach said the original sentence was "manifestly excessive" given Guode's disturbed mental state and difficult personal circumstances in the years leading up to the killings.

She had survived rape and her soldier husband's death in war-torn Sudan before coming to Australia as a refugee.

Islamic Republic alleges French medical charity MSF staff would serve as 'spies' if deployed on the ground in Iran."Due to Iran's national mobilisation against the virus and the full use of the medical capacity of the armed forces, it is not necessary for now for hospital beds to be set up by foreign forces, and their presence is ruled out," Alireza Vahabzadeh, adviser to Iran's health minister, said on Tuesday.
