It’s been 3 YEARS already since the disgraceful sentence in Ireland, it’s 3 YEARS of harming Martha Herda

July 28. 2016, Martha Herda appears by herself in the Central Criminal Court in Dublin
A few minutes before the noon, she heard a sentence: lifetime imprisonment.
One would say: “Only in Ireland” – to come for the trial on one’s own recognizance and be imprisoned for the rest of life. In this young girls case – for all of her life.
Yes – “Only in Ireland”

The jury, which couldn’t reach a consensus for few days. Suddenly, “miraculously”, unexpectedly, in the last moment, issues almost unanimous verdict, 11:1.
We say again: “Only in Ireland”.

Today, after 3 years since that day, sometimes we ask ourselves: “Where the verdict set in the case of Martha Herda really come up?” “And when did the verdict in the case of Martha Herda really come up?”
Are we entitled to such questions?
Maybe time will provide answers and proofs for those questions.
Where do the verdicts in Ireland do come up?
“Only in Ireland”?

And what is now, after 3 years?
The girl, who needs specialized psychological assistance, who is struggling with traumatic memories, who was burdened with responsibility also for the behavior of the passenger of her car.
Instead of receiving such help, she was considered a person, who needs to be isolated from the “healthy”, “normal” society.
One would like to ask “WHO is “healthy” and “normal” here”?
Yes, such things happen only in Ireland.

“Who was he for me? – … Many situations frightened me… I tried crying… I wanted him to stop, to end it.”- twenty first fragment of Martha’s book.

Since that moment the situation got only worse and it was more and more awkward, both at and outside of work. Many situations frightened me, so I tried to show him that I am angry. But when he was saying “I love when you’re angry” I tried crying, because I was getting sad and sorry, especially that so many people have been involved in this nonsense. I wanted him to stop, to end it. So we could get along. Sometimes I was even able to believe that he gave up, when he was  saying that he’s going on a date or coffee with Dagmara. I was happy inside, but again it turned out that he only wanted to check if I’m going to be jealous.

“Who was he for me? – he was following me literally everywhere… I had no idea how he does that. I started thinking that I have a GPS in my car.” – twentieth fragment of Martha’s book

After that, my roommate and others found out that’s something is wrong, and asked me if I needed any help. I was certain that he will get bored or his brother will talk to him. My roommate (with whom I live for 8 years), talked to his brother. It even worked for almost a month. But only with phone calls because he knew, that I won’t answer or text him back. Quickly I’ve noticed that he is following me literally everywhere, to the shop, to friends, to Dublin airport, to work… I had no idea how he does that. I started thinking that I have a GPS in my car.

“Who was he for me? – My friends started to have problems with their husbands… Never in my life I have encounter a situation ored a person like Him” – nineteenth part of Martha’s book

I asked my colleagues to not to give any information, whereas I got phone calls that he is standing under the homes of my friends and why?  My friends started to have problems with their husbands when he was standing at their houses or was bringing gifts to their workplaces. I had to explain (to the husbands) that it was about me, not their wives. I asked him to stop doing this. Never in my life I have encountered a situation or a person like Him

Ireland searches for an illness within Martha and wants to treat her! – THERE’S NO CONSENT for next examinations.

1st of May. In Poland it is a holiday and an anniversary of Poland entering European Union.
This was supposed to be a calm day. But not for Martha and her family.
In the morning Martha was only allowed to brush her teeth, and on an empty stomach she was put to medical examination in the hospital nearby.
The family found out that Martha was taken for examination in the morning.
The sister called Polish Embassy. But the Polish Embassy wasn’t working. It had no sense to call for the emergency number of Polish Embassy in Dublin, because it is only a “telephone helpline”. You can talk, and be more or less favorably heard. “Please write us na e-mail” – most frequent answer. And no practical help comes out of it.
Only waiting for a phone call from Martha left.
And she called.
Half year ago Martha told about her ailments. The sister had sent Martha some medications, but the were not delivered to Martha.
Instead of that, on May 1, after half of year of waiting, she was treated with a medical examination in the hospital nearby. She was transported without handcuffs, with a car (despite the small distance – practically across the street), with two prison officers: a woman and a man.

This was the first time in three years Martha had left the prison walls. For the first time in three years she saw a sky without the bars (in prison there is a net even above the yard to stop any “air deliveries” shot above the buildings from slingshots).
Martha assesses, that everyone was very polite, and the doctor seemed suprized.
During the examination Martha was informed that another test must be carried out, and after that a treatment. During the treatment Martha’s hair could fall out.

What to think about this?
If 99 times someone hurted us. And always did it “with a smile”, “politely”, and “for our own good”. Can you now believe that this one time that someone has sincere intentions?
We don’t know that. And we don’t want to check.
The risk is too high.
Nothing was fair in Martha Herda’s case. On any stage.
Nothing was fair in the investigation, in Irish media, in the Courts, and in prison.
In prison Martha is still discriminated.
How can we believe in Ireland’s good intentions?

Martha Herda’s family strongly objects any additional, out of procedure medical examinations of Martha. It’s a shared position of Martha and her family.
We also express our surprise, that no one asked Martha for consent to those examinations, and that she didn’t have to express the consent in writing.
In every civilized European country, no medical tests would be carried out without a written consent of the patient.
Martha still has her Rights, Human Rights.
And the Ireland is still doing whatever it wants.

Ireland, do you want to help Martha?
Give her medication sent to her by her sister,
And the best cure… would be returning Martha her FREEDOM…
