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 tiring weekend – Martha gets another licence

Weekend, from October 26 to 28 was exceptionally tiring for Martha.
She gained another license.
For whole 3 days she was finishing a course.

Because of the course, Martha told her friends, she won’t be able to come for visit.
Therefore no one planned visit on Sunday.

During three days Martha was conducting classes, that were assessed.
Now she received a license, and she will conduct classes with fellow inmates on her own.
On what topic?
“How to deal with violence and how to avoid violence in prison”

We are pleased to note, that this way the prison authorities in Dochas Centre involuntarily confirm that Martha is far from using violence.
Classes with such topic couldn’t be conducted by someone, who has a problem with violence.
After knowing her closer, people who have contact with Martha get convinced, that it is impossible for Martha to ever use any violence against anyone.

“How to deal with and how to avoid…”

Is anyone in Dochas Centre more active?
