Ambassador Győri expressed her profound dismay over the politically motivated vandalism, which was carried out at the dawn of the Hungarian National Holiday.
The embassy will file a criminal complaint with Spanish police said Ambassador Győri.
In Spain, the ruling conservative People's Party (PP) also condemned the politically motivated vandalism.
Extreme left-wing organization called Yesca Libre Catilla took responsibility for the criminal act. The organization published images of the damaged memorial on several social networking sites; the memorial was smeared with red paint.
