Martha starts another lessons

On Tuesday Martha shared her joy with us – she is taking new lessons: sewing on the machine. She joyfully talked about how she used the sewing machine for the first time.

As of now Martha holds about 10 certificates of completion of different courses. Currently Martha attends few courses, among them: Red Cross, English language, cooking, artistic, and sewing. Martha have already finished few English language courses. Martha is interested in what courses are available. She regrets that every day only 3 lessons are allowed. In the class can be only 6 people. Therefore it is not always possible to get to a given course. In that case, one is enrolled on the list of waiting people.

Martha’s family is glad, that Martha finds her “little joys”, and she enjoys small, simple things. She is still helpful to others, kind. Being good and doing something for others makes her happy.

We feel sorry for “small” people with even “lower” motives, who having some authority, get their “little joys” and “little satisfactions” from causing pain to others. It is especially sad, when the subject of their “small, easily attainable victories” are people who had already been harmed and unjustly treated by fate.

On what basis the Governor forbids the returning of paintings?

Martha’s family’s concerns are confirmed.
On friday Martha’s sister personally demanded the return of the paintings that belonged to her. Earlier, Martha’s friends unsuccesfuly tried to do the same. Officer on duty came down especially to inform, that Mrs Governor, Mary O’Connor does not allow returning of the paintings. With no explanation.

Why are those paintings so important to the prison authorities?
Earlier, the Irish media informed, that Martha is making paintings in prison, and her family will sell those paintings, and by that Martha is supporting the family in raising funds to submit Martha’s case to ECHR. (Martha’s case will be submitted to ECHR, regardless of amount of funds raised).
Martha’s family didn’t sell those paintings and for now didn’t intend to. Even if they change their mind at any time, they don’t think that Mrs Governor of Dochas Centre prison in Dublin has any right to decide, what Martha’s family will do with the paintings. The limit of the powers of Mrs Governor is the gate of the prison. Mrs Governor can’t decide what Martha’s family can do with their property in Poland, or anywhere else.

It seems that Mrs Governor used Martha’s gullibility. Martha wanted very much to give some small things to her closest people. Believing in Mrs Governor’s good intentions, she got the paintings back to prison, to prove that sister doesn’t sell anything from given presents. Now Mrs Governor is not allowing to return the paintings to the owner.

Martha’s family, who is not as gullible and naive as Martha, predicted such scenario and such intentions. Sadly, they they learned about the fact too late.
Martha’s sister don’t act for money. If she demand’s returning of her property, first of all she points to the rules, to the violation of the law that happened. If no other argument convince Mrs Governor, this one should. Martha didn’t give those paintings “for storing” until she will get out of prison. Those paintings left the prison legally and their indisputable owner is Martha’s sister. Those paintings are not the property of the prison. They interested Mrs Governor only when they were found on the internet and in the newspapers.

Will everyone in Ireland, deal with Martha as they want, not counting with anything?

Exceptionally touching meeting in prison

On friday a long awaited meeting of Martha and her family from Poland happened.
This time, besides mum and sister, for the first time, Martha’s niece came for a visit. This meeting was very touching for Martha and she cried for a long time while hugging her family. She didn’t see her niece for few years (last time during Martha’s stay in Poland in 2013), and she counts her niece to the closest people.

Martha wanted very much to give some presents and trinkets to her family. This is what she makes them for, on the lessons she attends to. But after the “trick” with the paintings, the family wished that Martha won’t bring anyting, and don’t ask anything from the prison authorities. The most important is that they can be together for few hours.

Sea of tears will yet pour out during goodbye on sunday.
