First,we do not support or justify taking justice in our own hands,killing,etc… Filip killed three people in Split last month .We do not think that Filip does not have to answer for his crime..But we believe that institutions have failed in Filips life.. Why did Filip, who was escaping crime and wanted to build his life in a civilized and honest way, choose to get rid of his blackmailers himself instead of contacting the police? Because police and other institutions did nothing to help Filip when he was a little boy. We cannot tell the police, the court or other institutions how to do their job; it is up to them to do their best not to betray individuals and to make them do desperate moves.This is a sad story about life of Filip Zavadlav..
As a boy,Filip Zavadlav obviously had enough courage to stand up against his abusive parents and ask for help from institutions in Croatia.Filip did a terrible thing: he killed three people in Split last month.Those people were drug dealers who were selling drugs to Filips younger brother.His brother is a drug addict.Filip and his two brothers grew up in a family of drug addicts..They were poor,and his parents abused their children..Filips mother is former heroin addict.She even made Filip steal money from one church when she had none to buy drugs.She abused him,chained him,even put her fingers in his eyes…When Filip was only 13-years old,he and his younger brother ,who was 10 at the time,went to police station to report abusive behaviour from their mother.She abused them…
Police did nothing,the Center for social welfare was informed about it.Center knew everything and still did nothing.From family Zavadlav none of the three boys were taken and put into the custody.
Even though Filip had tough childhood,he got into school,finished it and he went on ship.He was away for 15 months.In the meantime,his brother got into big debts..When Filip came back,he found out about those debts…Loansharks who gave Filips brother drugs came after Filip..They were threatening him for months,even came to his apartment and asked for money.They threatened him with death…They blackmailed him,and he could not take it anymore…He was alone and in desperate need for help.But he thought,if the institutions did not help me when i was a helpless little kid,why would they help me now..?
We believe that Filip deserves a second chance,a chance for better life .All he ever wanted was to get away from his addicted family and neighbourhood full of criminals.He had never taken any drugs,he did sports and he tried to do something with his life.
We hired him the best lawyer that we could,and we need your help.Filip was alone his whole life,but now we have a chance to show him that he is not alone anymore.We are here to help him,he deserves it.If you agree with us,please help us with the payment.
