It’s today – Second anniversary of a disgraceful verdict in Ireland – SHAME ON YOU, IRELAND! – WE REMEMBER!

There are dates, that Martha remembers more.
There are those, that her family remembers more.

July 28, 2016, in Ireland a disgraceful verdict was issued.
11 people of the jury, people not knowing about the law, made a decision.
Without evidence, without proving the motive, without proving of planning, after a month of circumstantial trial, after a week of thinking over a decision…
Suddenly…
…on the last day before summer holiday…
they make a decision, that (“beyond any doubt” – that’s how it’s suppose to be) – Martha is GUILTY OF PREMEDITATED MURDER?!
Martha, who attended the trial out of her recognizance, suddenly goes to prison.
The sentence is the worst: LIFETIME IMPRISONMENT.

With a 11:1 vote.
Almost unanimously, like there was no trial, like there was no doubts.
A sentence with accordance to four years of media campaign in Irish media, who made such  verdict on Martha earlier.
Now “blessed” by 11 “righteous”.
(As for thinking, Hungarian media showed a higher level of logical thinking than Irish media – on the beginning they reported, that Martha jumped out from the car, before it falling into the water.
It was unthinkable for them, that Martha, wanting to kill, drove the same car to the water along with the passenger.)

Things that are ILLOGICAL and ABSURD for whole world, are they acceptable in Ireland?
Will the world believe in such thinking and actions of Martha?
Do people who accused Martha believed this themselves?
With such level of “insight” can they be any authority?
Or maybe they are an authority: because they are effetive.
With such absurd accusation – a victory in the Court.
One must know how to do it. Under the other circumstance we would say – “we admire”.
It doesn’t matter that thinking world is laughing.
People accusing Martha may think:
“They have right – and we have the MONEY”.

Or maybe the whole trial is JUST A COVER?
Illusion of Trial, Illusion of Justice in Ireland?

Maybe Martha is somewhat responsible to some degree – she was behind the wheel, the passenger is dead (he drowned after getting out of the car).
Martha never admitted murder, she never admitted the intention of murder, she never admitted planning a murder.

Today the young woman is in prison for two years.
With the sentence completely cancelling her life: LIFETIME IMPRISONMENT.

What happened?
What didn’t work in Ireland?
Justice?
Thinking?
Honesty?
Compassion?

There are things that did work on July 28, 2016:
Promotions…
and connected to them…
…omnipotent EURO.

SHAME ON YOU IRELAND!
THINK IRELAND!
WE REMEMBER!
And the girl is suffering…

We’re starting a new facebook page – Justice for Martha – We encourage you to like, watch and share

We’ve started a new facebook page: Justice For Martha

We encourage you to like, watch and share the page.
We will post there contents published on our sites.
Both in Polish and English language.

Official internet sites regarding Martha’s case are:
http://pomocdlamarty.pl
and http://helpformartha.org

On facebook there are fanpages:
Help for Martha
and now    Justice For Martha

When we established the sites in October 2017, we were thinking about the name.
We’ve chosen “Help for Martha”.
Today, from the perspective of time, we have suggestions, that some of our friends didn’t enter those sites yet.
“Help for Martha”, for some people, is associated primarily with financial help.
Someone, who doesn’t want to support financially, doesn’t like to be forced or solicited. He or she doesn’t eve want to check, what is on the website.
There are plenty of people in need of financial help.
Most painful is the fight of many people for life or health, often a fight with time.
We sincerely feel for those people.
Martha needs help also.
Also financial help.
But financial help is just a part of needs regarding Martha.
Other forms of helping Martha are equally important.

Martha’s main needs are JUSTICE and FREEDOM.
But for this to happen, she needs – HELP.

Is JUSTICE for Martha possible?
There is no justice in this world.
What happened in Martha’s case?
Absurd accusation, scandalous verdict.
What can be done?
RESTORE THE JUSTICE.
Martha can not be compensated for what happened.
We don’t believe in full restoration of justice.
But maybe just… a little,
some… appearance of justice.

It would be better than what is now.
Maybe a bit naive, but we will strongly promote the need of JUSTICE for Martha.
And because justice is blind, it needs… HELP.
One needs, at least sometimes… to lead by the hand… to help… take in… do not ignore… take care… make a good deed…

We encourage you to promote
Justice For Martha

Delays in incoming and outgoing correspondence with Martha

On April 17, 2018, we published a tab called “corredpondence”.
We’ve put there dates of receiving letters by Martha.
We also provided dates of giving the letters written by Martha, for sending.
The entries we’re based primarily on the information we’ve got from Martha.
We thank very much to all people for keeping lively correspondence with Martha.
Those letters mean very much for Martha, and we are very grateful for such form of supporting Martha.

While keeping such records we’ve noticed, that some letters come exceptionally quickly, and others exceptionally slow.
In some situations we’ve noticed an improvement in delivering mail.
In others – there was no improvement.

Later, for various reasons, we weren’t able to update the information on an ongoing basis.
There were a lots of reasons: other actions regarding Martha’s case, overload, lack of information from Martha, Martha’s phone calls to different people, etc.

Currently, despite multitude of matters, we will try to update, and if possible, provide such information on an ongoing basis.

Situation in delivery of correspondence to Martha also had changed now.
Martha is in another building. Inevitably, that seemingly small distance and a small difference, comparing to previous cell, has some strange translation to considerable delays in delivering letters to Martha.
It’s enough for an officer, who usually brings letter for Martha, to be on a vacation, and… Martha can wait and wait.
For others, Martha’s new cell is somehow too far.

We can ensure, that Martha is responding for all letters.
Mostly she does this right away. Even on the same day. The secod day, she gives the letters for sending.
If she’s having a lots of studying, she responds immediately when she finds a moment of time. But it doesn’t last long.

We thank very much to all people for warm and valuable correspondence with Martha.
We appreciate this kind of support and upholding the hope.
In appreciation, we will try our best to provide information that are most up to date.
THANK YOU

Do we praise the authorities of Dochas Centre prison in Ireland too much?

We have recently met with the statement, that we praise the prison officers of Dochas Centre in Ireland too much.
Do we really?
Because of our “praise” some people outside the prison are not so determined to help Martha.
What for?
If she’s doing so well?

Is Martha doing well?
In no prison, even in the best one, no one can be doing well.
It’s not a desirable place to be.
Everyone who found themselves there wants to get out as fast as possible.

Do we praise the officers of Dochas Centre prison too much?
Were writing the truth.
Of course we don’t write about everything.
Some behavior of few officers we find especially shocking.
We didn’t always write about this. And when we did, it was rather toned down and it didn’t show our full indignation. Indignation about boorish behavior of these people towards Martha.
(Part of the family found some posts as to harsh. That’s where the discrepancies between sites “helpformartha.org” and the facebook fanpage “Help for Martha” come from.)
On the other hand, there are people in Dochas Centre prison, we would like to thank very much. But we don’t write about it either.
Maybe there will be time for this, when Martha will be free.
We’re very grateful already.

We also try not to write about other women serving sentences.
These sites are relations about Martha’s tragedy, not about life of women in Dochas Centre.
The women, who were unlucky to find themselves in this place, don’t want to flaunt with this.
We respect that.

We have to “balance” every word on our sites, but also we have to avoid weakening the message with “mawkish” posts.
The main difference between us and the Irish media is that we write the TRUTH and we don’t build up a sensation.
We don’t want to shock with posts or “bloated” titles.
If someone or something deserves praise, we will do it.
If it deserves condemning, we will also describe this while watching to not to harm Martha.

The officers of Dochas Centre prison in Ireland are not a party to the dispute.
Discrimination towards Martha, which takes place in this prison, will not be a main argument for the ECHR, but only an additional background.
Just like everywhere, among the officers there happen to be people exceptionally good, but also exceptionally mean.
It is also undisputable that the conditions in Dochas Centre prison are very good. Different people responsible for individual departments and the proper functioning of the prison perform very well.

This doesn’t mean that Martha should stay in this place.
In a few days 2 years will pass.
2 years of waiting for JUSTICE IN IRELAND.
How much longer?
We aske for help very much.

MArtha joyfully dances on the Irish Dance show – we congratulate having interesting initiatives in Dochas Centre prison

On Friday, July 20, there was a promised Irish dancing show at the Dochas Centre prison.
After 4 hours of learning

The show lasted for about 1 hour.
Including instructors, total of 3 pairs were dancing.
In one of the pairs, of course, was… Martha.
Together with other inmate.
Martha was glad of the performance.
She thinks, the dancing was good and that they had fun.

During summer vacation there is a little of activities in Dochas Centre prison in Dublin.
Martha had already finished those available.
The more, we congratulate the people responsible for activities in Dochas Centre in Dublin. We congratulate interesting ideas.
Life of women serving their sentences in prison is difficult, just because of imprisonment alone.
Every moment of relaxation, every moment of movement, every moment of joy, every moment of interesting activities is a very good initiative.
After all, the classes are for women, who found themselves behind “walls” only “temporarily”.
The imprisonment is a punishment for mistakes, but it can not create enormous gulf between the “outer” and the “inner” world.

We congratulate of every interesting cultural activities in Dochas Centre prison in Dublin.

Martha receives her e-cigarette back- will she gradually quit smoking?

Martha didn’t ask the officer to buy her a new e-cigarette.
She decided to save money.
She asked her sister, to return her previously owned e-cigarette.
And it returned… from Poland… in a parcel… together with pictures from grandma’s funeral.
The same e-cigarette she gave away, because officers took the charging cable from it.
They suggested that this is a cable for a cell phone.
Now, the e-cigarette was delivered to Martha without a problem, in a parcel from the family in Poland.

Maybe now, thanks to the e-cigarette, Martha will gradually quit smoking…
she wanted to do that.
That’s why she asked for e-cigarette.
Surely it will not be easy.
Martha laready didn’t smoke.
She started again since the trial.
Now she claims that smoking calms her down.
“It’s impossible not to smoke”
Now there will be an e-cigarette instead of a regular cigarette.
And maybe at least a little less…
Gradually…
And maybe someday Martha will learn to be remain calm without the help of e-cigarette…
Even under these circumstances…

Martha receives photos from the funeral of her grandmother – “Grandma looked very nice”

On Tuesday Martha received a parcel sent by her sister.
In the package there was photographs from Martha’s grandma funeral, her favorite grandma – Janka.
Funerals are not the best time to take photographs.
But especially thinking about Martha, her mother took some photos during funeral.
Now Martha could see those photos.
She could at least see her grandma like this.
On her last day…

Martha was very touched.
“The grandma looked very nice”

Will Marta perform at the Irish Dance dance show at the Dochas Center prison?

We wrote, that Martha learns Irish dancing.
We informed, that the classes was supposed to last 2 days.

It appears, that the classes will last for 3 days.
Later, they were supposed to be held on Wendesday, July 18.
For July 20, a show is scheduled – a show of Irish dance in Dochas Centre prison.
In the beginning, there were about 12 women inmates of prison in Dublin on the classes.
On the second class – a half of that.
On the third one, there was only the instructor and… Martha.

After few classes, on July 20, a show of Irish Dance is scheduled in Dochas Centre prison in Dublin.
Who will perform?
How many people will participate in the show?

Martha is supporting such initiatives, even if she has to dance only with the intructor.
The family and friends joke, that there is full of Martha everywhere.

It’s good to find joy in every activity,
in every learning,
in every effort…
In a place like prison, one “celebrates” every activity, every learning, every effort…
…to not to go crazy…
