“Viktor Orbán, Prime Minister, had a discussion with Zoltán Balog, Minister of State for Social Inclusion, and Flórián Farkas, head of the National Roma Self-Government (he is also the Member of Parliament of FIDESZ) about the situation of Roma on Friday (18. March 2011) – communicated Péter Szijjártó, the Prime Minister’s spokesman.
The communiqué contains no details, just that the negotiators agreed that the maintenance of order is the duty of the police in Hungary. The spokesman hints at the situation in Gyöngyöspata. The village in Heves County has been in the centre of attention since dozens of members of the Civil Guard Association for a Better Future (Szebb Jövőért Polgárőr Egyesület), which is linked to the Jobbik and the banned Hungarian Guard Movement (Magyar Gárda), started patrolling on 1 March, claiming that the local Roma people terrorize the population of the village. But according to the Roma, the civil guards and other people arriving to the village intimidate them.Flórián Farkas responded to the question of [origo]: after the meeting they asked Sándor Pintér, Minister of Interior to develop an action programme to resolve the situation.According to Farkas this programme should deal with also the security of small towns but the emphasis is on the stopping of paramilitary groups. The head of the National Roma Self-Government did not talk about any further details; according to him, it is exactly the Minister of Interior’s responsibility to develop them.”
