Please share broadly.
Martha is such a kind soul, that she often relents.
For peace, often at her expense.
Unfortunately, strong personalities, who sometimes appear around her, with different intentions, use this against Martha.
Will Martha stop to succumb to such extortions?
Will she start to be herself?
Will she start to make decisions according to her own choice and her own good?
The first extortionist was Csaba.
On the unlucky day he forced Martha to drive towards the beach.
He wanted Martha to drive.
Martha didn’t want at first.
She didn’t want to be seen in the car with Csaba… and she started driving.
Then she “stood up”.
She told Csaba, that she’s going home and she will not drive to the beach.
“Standing up” and opposing at this moment led to the tragedy.
And she could not succumb to Csaba’s extortion earlier…
It’s easy to say…
Martha is can’t stop worrying about others.
But maybe she could be… a little bit more resolute…
About the man from other social culture…
Culturally accustomed to male domination…
Where woman has nothing to say…
Where a woman can even be abducted, and she agrees for this…
Maybe Martha could…
If she was less kind…
If she could…
Obstacles in the way
by Beata Pytel
With dedication to Martha Herda
Your thoughts are hollowed by emptiness
You have great pain in your heart
No scarf can wipe your tears
Someday even steel breaks
So hide your heart in stone
Put a shell on your soul
On your shoulder proudy carry
All your torments
You’ll overcome all hindrances
With Faith, Hope and Love
And all obstacles put in your way
You’ll beat with your heart’s patience

In the brochure “Know Your Rights. Your Rights as a Prisoner“, published by the Irish Council for Civil Liberties and the Irish Penal Reform Trust, rights of a prisoner in Ireland were clearly presented.
About the correspondence, which can not be supervised it is written:
“Can I send any letters which will not be inspected?
Yes. Letters to certain organisations or bodies will not be opened before they are sent and will be posted without delay. These include letters to:
- your solicitor (legal advisor),
- the Minister for Justice,
- the Prison Visiting Committee,
- the Inspector of Prisons,
- the European Court of Human Rights,
- the Irish Human Rights Commission,
- the Parole Board,
- the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT), and
- the International Red Cross.
Incoming mail from your solicitor or any of the organisations or bodies listed above will only be opened to make sure that it is from your solicitor or one of the listed organisations. If any letter addressed to you is to be examined, it must be opened while you are there.” (bolded by us).
“Ireland has agreed to follow the terms of four international treaties (agreements) which lay out standards for the treatment of prisoners.
- • the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR);
- • the Convention for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment from the Council of Europe;
- • the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR); and
- • the United Nations Convention against Torture (CAT).
The Council of Europe’s European Prison Rules are also important. Although they are not the law, they give important guidance on high standards for prisons.”
