Martha’s first test before High School exam

On Friday, November 9, Martha took the first part of the test before the high school exams.
In the form of conversation and tests her degree of preparation for the exam was checked.
Reading in English, writing in English and mathematics.
First part of the exam lasted for about 40 minutes.

The second part of the exam was a week later, on Friday, November 16.
Just like the first part it lasted for about 40 minutes.

The test concerned checking if Martha has dislexia or dysgraphia.
If it would turn out that Martha has dyslexia or dysgraphia, she would have additional time during the high school exam.

The final exam is planned for June 2019.
Alongside with Martha, few women from Dochas Centre prison also prepare for high school exams.
Number of women can still change, but as of now, it’s about 6 women.

Martha is still learning for exams.
She doesn’t yet know the results of her check exam.

HERDA vs. IRELAND – The attorney sends an appeal to ECHR

On Monday, November 12, Martha’s current attorney – Frank Gearty, sent an appeal to the ECHR.
To the application signed by Martha, the attorney attached all the documentation confirming the arguments raised.
Whole package was sent to Strasbourg.

The deadline for submitting an apllication expires on November 20, 2018.

What will the decision of European Court be?
Will it support Martha’s opinion, that her human rights were violated in Ireland?
Will the arguments presented prove to be sufficient?

All we can do is wait…
…and have hope…
We are very happy that an International Court will look into Martha’s case.
International Court in Strasbourg.

No matter the verdict…
…SHAME ON YOU IRELAND!…
…so that the poor girl would have to complain to the European Court…

Highly recommended

Visit of the solicitor, Frank Gearty – Martha signs an application to ECHR

On Saturday, November 10, Martha was visited by her attorney, Frank Gearty.
The main goal of the visit was discussing the issues related with submitting the application to European Court of Human Rights.
Martha got acquainted with prepared application.
Martha, just as her family, agree with the application prepared by an attorney Frank Gearty.

This is probably the first document in Martha’s case that is “on the topic”.
Specific and factual.
Arguments used are convincing even for people not knowing anything about the law.
Because every human knows and understands what rights he or she has.
And feels when his or her rights, HUMAN RIGTS, were violated.

We thank to the attorney Frank Gearty for his very good work.

Martha signed the application to European Court of Human Rights.

She didn’t want to leave a copy of the document for her in prison.

Martha’s friend arrives to Warsaw for the recording of “The Case for the Reporter” program.

Martha’s friend, Katarzyna, who returned to Poland permanently, couldn’t be there for the first part of the recordings for “The Case for the Reporter” program.
And this wasn’t all about huge distance.
But now, on October 25, she did all she could to be on the recordings in Warsaw.
She left after her work.
She had such connection, that she had to ride all night, even longer.
Martha’s family had only few hours of ride to Warsaw.
Kasia rode 3 times longer.
When Martha’s family was leaving their home, Kasia, after 9 hours trip, was arriving to Warsaw.

Four people from Martha’s side participated in the recordings.
Three from Martha’s family, and her friend – Kasia.
Kasia is one of people who are bold and direct.
She knows Martha’s case in tiniest details.
Knowing Martha, knowledge about the facts of the case and Kasia’s character made that she wanted to speak in the running discussion multiple times.
But the discussion of experts was so vivid, that…
…she made it…
…only once…

Was it worth to travel so long?
…And yet you have to come back home… to the family…
…alone… so many kilometers… Must go to work on the next day…
…must  arrive to work… in the morning… not get late…

We wholeheartedly thank Martha’s True Friend – Kasia for all of her acrtions she undertakes for Martha’s good.

Recordings for “The Case for the Reporter” program, in Warsaw television studio

On Thursday, October 25, in the Polish Television studio in Warsaw, the next part for the reportage “The Case for the Reporter” was recorded.
This time a vivid discussion was recorded.
After showing a short material recorded on October 11, the discussion began.
The short fragment recorded earlier handled Martha’s case exceptionally well, and was a very good introduction to the discussion.
Invited experts had very much to say.
Martha’s case is exceptionally shocking.
But in that case, there are many details not always presented truthfully. Maybe unnecessarily, instead of concentrating on help, too much time of the discussion was used to establish or correct the details of the case. Maybe…
It’s important that such discussion took place…
It’s important, that Martha’s case can’t be just forgotten…
It’s important, that Martha’s case can not be considered closed, just as Ireland wants…
It’s important, that there are people who want to help…
It’s important, that there are chances…

The discussion was very vivid and lasted longer than planned.
And it would last even more…
We don’t know what part of the discussion will be used in final reportage.
But after watching the first part, we are certain, that whole reportage will be carried out very well, and we thank very much for it right now…

We thank the invited experts for practical advice.
It is possible, that after airing there will be some actions for restoring justice for Martha.

We will inform about the date of airing of the program when we will know it.
We know that this will be in November. Probably somewhere near half of November.

After recording finished, Martha called the family and she managed to wholeheartedly thank Mrs Elżbieta Jaworowicz.
It was very kind and warm talk.
We are grateful to Mrs Elżbieta for giving strength and cheering Martha during the phone call.

Mum and sister visit Martha (pt. 2)- 23rd of October 2018 – Martha receives International Red Cross Volunteer Certificate

“Tuesday was the day, when first two hours we’ve spent hugging, as always, and talking on endless subjects…

Next entry to the visiting room started with welcoming by mrs Governor of all present people, between which were teachers and  representatives of International Red Cross Organization.
The purpose of the meeting was to introduce the idea of promoting and work of the organization, and a first aid demonstration by Martha and another woman.
On this meeting, certificates were given to four women, as International Volunteers of Red Cross, including Martha.

Next was a surprise – a performance of women, who sang 3 songs with a guitar. This was them most touching element to us…
Tears were streaming down… when we heard the words abount a sister, mum, and that “someday I will fly from here…”
At the mere memory of it, our eyes get wet from emotions…

Next there were congratulations, thanks, hugs, words of encouragement for the future…
And a nice last part – coffee drunk together, with a cake.
We’ve given our portions to Martha, so she can have something sweet for later… because what else could we do…
Then hard parting… So many feelings, still to little of time spent together, to little, to short…

This was our last meeting, almost torn hands and hearts…
When will we meet again??? We don’t know…”

Mum and sister visit Martha – from 21st to 23rd of October 2018 – part 1.

“Visiting Marttha: 21st of October – 23rd of October 2018

Meeting on sunday, after few months (since April) started with tears of emotion. Feelings took us over so much, that only thing we could do was to swallow bitter tears, without the possibility to say a word…
We’ve only looked at Martha, and she looked at us, and we held our hands tight together…
After some time we started talking.
And so, not knowing when, the visit time passed.

On the next day, we were full of enthusiasm from the possibility of meeting, so the time passed even quicker, full of mixed emotions, from joy, through helplessness, anger, sadness…”

Martha makes birthday wishes to her Mum

Today Martha made a phone call to her Mum.
She gave special birthday wishes for her Mum.
She remembered, as always.
She wished her mum for her to live as long as possible, no shorter than 100 years.
She wished her mum for her to be always smiling, no matter the situation that happened.
She wished her mum for her to be always happy…

And what will Martha wish for her Mum in the next year?
Will it be from the same place?
We hope NOT.
May it be personally.
May it by from freedom…
Those would be the best wishes for Mother…

Unreal?
It depends from good will and effective actions of many people…
Let’s help in fulfilling those most-anticipated desires, wishes, expectations…
