Gypsies did not have access to the donations collected to benefit flood victims

The local branch of the ’Jobbik’ party in Monor (a town in Hungary), has an ongoing collection for the benefit of flood victims.  The flood has damaged 17 houses in the township, of which 5 are inhabited by Gypsies. 

A ’Jobbik’ party activist, in charge of distributing donations, has not given any aid to the Gypsy victims- clearly stating it was due to their lineage.  She had apportioned parts of the donations for non-Gypsy born people who were not affected by the flood, but were considered ’Jobbik’ voters.  Online descriptions of the donations emphasize that the contents will only benefit ’Hungarians.’
