In this winter time, I often think about the people of good heart.
You and all the rest of the family are such a person.
I hope your good heart sets an example to others and repays you with the same.
Thank you for your good hearts with my loved ones.
In the brochure “Know Your Rights. Your Rights as a Prisoner“, published by the Irish Council for Civil Liberties and the Irish Penal Reform Trust, rights of a prisoner in Ireland were clearly presented.
About the correspondence, which can not be supervised it is written:
“Can I send any letters which will not be inspected?
Yes. Letters to certain organisations or bodies will not be opened before they are sent and will be posted without delay. These include letters to:
- your solicitor (legal advisor),
- the Minister for Justice,
- the Prison Visiting Committee,
- the Inspector of Prisons,
- the European Court of Human Rights,
- the Irish Human Rights Commission,
- the Parole Board,
- the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT), and
- the International Red Cross.
Incoming mail from your solicitor or any of the organisations or bodies listed above will only be opened to make sure that it is from your solicitor or one of the listed organisations. If any letter addressed to you is to be examined, it must be opened while you are there.” (bolded by us).
Due to large delays in delivering of the correspondence to Martha, and due to large delays in sending of correspondance which Martha gives for sending, we are starting a page with information about dates of letters and consignments.
Of course not every consignment is delayed.
Some of them are delivered very quickly, but there are also ones which were sent long ago, and still, to this day, were not handed to Martha.
We provide the information only about the people, who wish to inform us about it via e-mail.
We provide only the first names. We provide dates of sending. People who are concerned, will have no doubts about ensuring that it’s about them.
We thank all the people for giving comfort to Martha.
Even short letter, every kind word, everything that brings smile on Martha’s face is very precious, and we thank for that.
Today it’s different Martha. Out of a girl who smiled all the time, today she smiles rarely, occasionaly, stealthily. She seems to be sorry for smiling.
We thank you, that with your letters you help us, so that Martha will not forget how to smile.
