Marta Herda – help – freedom
Tragic story of Martha Herda. A call for help in freeing her from prison, where she is serving lifetime imprisonment sentence for a crime she didn’t commit.
The story of drama of Martha Herda – a Polish woman serving a lifetime imprisonment sentence. Wrongly, because everything indicates that she didn’t commit the crime she was sentenced for. I have expressed my view on the case in this article, which is also a call for help for Martha.
We could write a lot about 2018.
We will limit to 3 categories:
The main failure is that Martha is still in prison.
Engagement of many people, next TV program, few press articles, websites, didn’t make any important change.
Are we anywhere further?
Rather we’ve lost time, health, and more…
In the success category we put two situations:
Th…, s… – how to say this politely – la…, let’s use the word: parting with Martha’s former attorney.
The attorney pointed by accusing GARDA.
GARDA, who came to such brilliant conclusions. Criminal Fantasy. Parody, Caricature, Farce, Grotesque or Drama, or rather Tragedy with elements of Absurd.
We finally managed to part with the attorney effectively only on May 20, 2018.
Way, way to late.
Martha assessed, that it would be better if she defended herself only with family and friends.
In was an extremely and exceptionally effective attorney only in one matter – keeping Martha from changing him.
We don’t understand this.
If you can’t cope, you can’t do it, why do you want to be there at all cost?
In some countries, first instance attorney wouldn’t be able to lead the case in next instances.
If Martha needed an “assurer” that it will be all right, we would hire some good motivational speaker or a psychologist, not an attorney.
But Martha’s former attorney did everything well and he doesn’t understand why this happened.
It seems that finally Martha, and her family had grown to appropriate actions.
Naive faith in honesty and justice in Ireland have ended.
Unexpectedly, current Martha’s attorney has been promoted to this category.
After all our peanyas and admiration, a screeching reality comes out.
All may still be good. Maybe…
Although now it will be very, very hard…
Time will tell…
Will current attorney show exceptional engagement and exceptional effectiveness?
After 2019 will we say that this was a SUCCESS or a FAILURE?
Will the words of one of the people confirm that “In Ireland, you can not trust ANY lawyer”?
Unfortunately we are one of the people happy that 2018 finally ended.
We’re smarter this year.
But are we smart enough, determined enough to lead to positive ending in 2019?
How often we would want to repeat something?
Maybe the second time we would act better, more mature, definitely different.
However most of the time we don’t get the second chance.
It’s HERE and NOW.
Nothing in life will happen again.
“The train is gone”.
If we had some chance, it just gone away now, and we’re late.
There’s no use in blaming yourself AFTER.
But there are situations…
That something can be fixed…
It won’t be the same…
Can remorse be calmed?
…That we didn’t do everything, when there was proper time…
…That we lacked something… maybe courage…
…Maybe we wanted to stick to the sidelines…
…Maybe we counted for the case to end without our participation…
…Maybe we don’t have only clean pages in our life and we fear, that someone will suddenly get them out…
What will you do when you get the second chance?
How will you act?
Will the second time be the same?
HOW WILL YOU ACT WHEN MARTHA’S CASE WILL BE RESUBMITTED BEFORE THE COURT?
WILL YOU BE WILLING TO HELP WITH NEW TESTIMONIES?
Next “train” will go for the same destination.
Will you get on board this time?
Give us a sign if you want a “ticket”.
“If someone really wants to help – will find a way.
If someone doesn’t want to help – will always find an excuse”
What will you choose?
Will you help Martha NOW?
