I am married, and a mother of six. I have three sons and three daughters. My husband works for the army and this keeps him absent from the home for days at a time and also longer periods. One day I was with my children and a relative came with two suitcases, a big one and a small one. He asked me to keep the suitcases until he comes back to take it.
One day after this visit the police came and searched my house. They had been monitoring my relative and saw him enter my house with the suitcase. They asked for the suitcase, searched it and found only papers and clothes. It seems they did not find what they were looking for. As they were leaving they asked if he had left something else. I said yes and pointed to the other suitcase. They opened it and some things fell out. I did not know what they are. One of the policemen took one of these things and put the rest back. They asked me to come to the police station with them. I did not know the reason but later I found out that the things in the bag were in fact drugs.
I told the police that this bag belongs to my relative. The police brought him but he denied being the owner of the bag and the content. That is why they charged me with the possession. For this I was sentenced to 20 years in prison. At that time I was pregnant in my second month. I gave birth in the prison. I have been released after 15 years.
I have faced so many problems, financial and social and I have been humiliated by the community. I have lost hope. I feel that being in prison was actually better than what I am now going through. Sometimes I go back to my memories inside the prison and I remember the treatment of the inmates by the prison administration and the atmosphere between the inmates. The treatment was very kind when I compare with what I have faced on the outside. From the prison authorities they told me there is an organization that works with former prisoners in building their capacity and getting some skills. I dreamed that I could start a small project. I learned a lot about handicrafts, marketing and baking cookies. I hope to succeed in my work and to provide my family with a happy environment. I want to compensate them for what they have been suffering.
