George Soros to close his Budapest office amid ‘political hostility’ – report

Latest news

    George Soros’ Open Society Foundations (OSF) will close their office in Budapest and move Eastern European operations to Germany, citing the “political hostility” it faces in Hungary, the Austrian Die Presse newspaper reported.

    The office will reportedly shut down by the end of August and then move to Vienna or to Berlin. The report came a week and a half after the Hungarian parliamentary elections, in which the conservative anti-immigrant Fidesz party, led by Prime Minister Viktor Orban, secured a decisive victory.

    The Hungarian-born US billionaire and philanthropist George Soros, who is well-known for promoting the rights of migrants and asylum seekers through his network of NGOs, is commonly seen in Hungary as the arch-nemesis of Orban. The Prime Minister has repeatedly accused the billionaire of tampering with the country’s internal affairs, as well as of conspiring to flood Europe with migrants, predominantly from Muslim countries, in order to demolish European values and purvey a globalist agenda.

    Shortly before the elections, Fidesz introduced an anti-NGO bill, dubbed the ‘Stop Soros Act.’ The proposed legislation targets NGOs that “organize illegal immigration” and advocate for the rights of migrants through other means. The bill, if adopted, will oblige NGOs to provide government with detailed accounts of their activities and will impose a 25 percent tax on funds they receive from abroad. The legislation is expected to be voted-on shortly, when parliament reconvenes after the elections.
