Families of victims complain the money collected in campaigns was embezzled

Families of Colectiv victims make harsh accusations almost three months after the tragedy. According to them, associations that had money for helping people affected by the tragedy embezzled the collected funds and the victims have not received, at this point, the sums they need for medical care.

“Then, discussions referred to many millions of euro. People have donated for those poor victims experiencing terrible suffering. They said they would pay for reconstruction operations. Where is the money? We received nothing. I talked to many of the parents, I also talked to the victims who were released. We found a lawyer and we want to file a complaint at the prosecutors’ office. We want these foundations to justify the money they collected. We are desperate that we have to buy creams for burns that cost 12 million per month. And we do not have that money, we have nowhere to take it from”, the mother of a victim declared, according to Romania TV.
