“I’m here for one and a half year already, but I feel like it was much more…” – sixth fragment of Martha’s book

Book fragmentWhat is my current situation in prison.

I’m here for one and a half year already, but I feel like it was much more. Time passes very slowly, especially at nights. For time to pass faster I try to do whaever I can, and take what the prison offers.

I’m in a single cell, meaning I’m alone in the cell, so I feel safer. I wouldn’t like to share the cell for different reasons, among them thievery, lack of understanding, conflicts of different kinds, or bringing other girls to the room. I have a key to the room, and every time I go for dinner I close it.

Inmates are divided into three stages: basic, standard, and enhance. I am enhance, that means I can have two phone calls per day to my family or friends, every call for 6 minutes. I can also have two visits per week, thirty minutes each.

I work in the library and I get paid for it, + €3 per week (basic – €6, standard – €12, enhance – €15,60), meaning I have €18,60 per week.


Another person is asking about Martha’s work at the library

On Wednesday a person responsible for the libraries (we don’t have sufficient information to provide the person’s position) in Dochas Centre Prison and in Mountjoy Prison, noticed that for some time already, Martha is not working in the library.
The person asked Mrs Governor Mary O’Connor about it.
Mrs Governor claimed, she knows nothing about it.
Mrs Governor asked Martha.
Martha said, that she doesn’t know the reasons why she is not working at the library.
One of the officers simply took away the key to the library from her, and she only said Martha doesn’t work there anymore.
This officer rather doesn’t like foreigners.

It’s kind, that another person is noticing lack of Martha in the library, and aks for her.
Until now only the inmates were asking for Martha, and especially the person working with her in the library.
Now a question about Martha was asked from different side.
Martha even describes the person as a owner of the libraries, and a person responsible for the libraries and their supplies. We can not confirm that, but we can say thank you.

We thank you very much!
People who get to know Martha closer, see what a valuable person she is.


Martha thanks for a letter from Mrs Aurelia

Martha is grateful for all letters she receives. They cheer her up, give hope, and help survive tough moments.
All letters are precious. Martha is very grateful for all of them.
The content and delivery time of some letters meet the most appropriate moment.
This was the case of letter from Mrs Aurelia. The letter was sent to Martha on March 29, Martha received it on April 8 (on Sunday).
She immediately wanted to thank for the letter – the whole phone call with family was devoted to this.

Martha thanks very much.
She felt, that the letter is written from the heart.
The letter “gave a smile on her face”.

Martha said, that this letter was very good to read.
And mrs Aurelia was so concerned about Martha’s case, she wrote her first letter in 20 years.

Thank you very much.
We thank sincere, sensitive people for their support.
Every form of help is precious and has it’s extraordinary value.

Martha responded immediately, and today she passed the letter for sending.
Now Martha informs her family about every letter, and she will inform also whenever something brought for her by her close ones will be delivered.


Martha still doesn’t get the things she was promised – we will put counters on our sites

Martha is still waiting for delivering the things brought for her to prison by her close ones.
The number of things is growing.

On March 8th, her friend brought her an e-cigarette. Bought especially for Martha. So she can quit smoking.
It still, until now, can not be found at prison reception.
Martha’s friend, who brought the e-cigarette to prison, already wanted to come to the prison, to encourage the officers to more perservering search.
Maybe they are overworked, or they have so many things, that it is difficult to find just one of them.

On March 23 a friend of Martha brought her na MP3 player. Martha still didn’t receive it.

The things that Martha waits for for the longest time, are cosmetics. Her sister brought them twice. She brought the on December 8th, 2017, and  on February 3rd, 2018 (it’s good that they have long expiration date, and Martha has large patience treshold).
According to information from the meeting with Acting Chief Officer Kelleher, every person with lifetime sentences were supposed to receive them on April 1st.
And they received them. Everyone…
Except Martha.

Due to such situation we are planning introduction of counters on our sites. How many days Martha didn’t get the her due things.
For all of them Martha has permissions.

One of the counters will also count, for how many days the paintings, which belong to Martha’s sister, are held in prison.

Additional counter will be one counting days of Martha being imprisoned.
In the opinion of many people – INNOCENTLY.

…eventually decide to send Martha’s drawing to you…

…maybe you will eventually receive your portrait drawn by Martha…

…you will like it…
…you won’t mind, that it may be bent and folded in unexpected places…
…you will want to thank Martha…

…surely you will find a way to thank that innocent girl in her fight for regaining freedom…


We thank all believing people for their prayers

Martha’s tragedy has no political colours.
It’s beyond divisions.
It moves both believers as non believers.
It’s also beyond any religious differences.

We thank very much everyone for remembering Martha and her case in your prayers.
We thank very much people of different religions, Churches, and religious associations.
We thank for all sincere, selfless and free prayers.

Martha’s case is also a subject of constant prayers of Martha’s family

We’re grateful for sincere help to all non believing people.
In the face of human tragedy, solidarity and unity is the greatest support you can give.


The power of hope resulting from Easter

Easter is two events connected to Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ, whose name no one questions, and each religion only differ in their assesment of who he wasm and what role he played.

Those two events are:
1. The martyr, selfless death after an unfair trial and a scandalously unfair sentence
(As you can see, unfair trials, and grossly unfair sentences have a very long tradition)
2.Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

For believers, enormous hope flows from resurrection of Jesus Christ.
In the Holy Bible, a scripture recognized by many religion as a Word of God, St. Paul described this (1 Corinthians 15:12-14,16,17)

12 But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14 And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.


16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. 17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile

If Christ had risen from the dead then there is (will be) a resurrection.
If Christ had risen from the dead, then others will rise also.
If Christ had risen from the dead, then Csaba will rise from the dead also.
If Christ had risen from the dead, then milions of people who died will rise from the dead also.

If Christ had NOT risen from the dead, then… all Christian religions have no sense.

May faith in Resurrected Jesus Christ will be a source of enormous strength in waiting for resurrectiopn of every close ones, who died.
Someday this resurrection will take place…



Martha’s April’s Fools Day

On Sunday, Martha called her sister. During the call the sister says, that they will see each other in two weeks.
Martha replied: “And what would you say if we meet in two days?”
“How?” – asked the sister.
Martha: “The prosecutor had withdraw the accusation and I’m going out of prison”.
Surprised sister believed Martha, because she would want such scenario to happen.
(In previous years Martha fooled her sister, that for example she is pregnant).

The same day Martha called her Mum.
She also managed to fool her Mum.

Why the family believes such words so easily.
It would be their dreams coming true. Maybe even no so completely unreal.
Currently Ireland’s Supreme Court is analysing the case regarding whether this is not a judicial mistake.

Will those word be only Martha’s April’s Fools Day joke?
Nevertheless, on this very rainy Sunday, after Martha’s phone call, her sister and Mum didn’t need coffee anymore.
