After his election victory, Hungarian premier Viktor Orban is cracking down on opposition. A pro-government newspaper recently published a list of names of people accused of supporting US-Hungarian magnate George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.
The foundation backed by the Hungarian-born US billionaire is set to move its staff to the German capital of Berlin. The move came after Hungary said it would tighten a law against foreign-funded NGOs.
The Open Society Foundations, backed by US-Hungarian billionaire George Soros, is considering closing its Budapest branch and opening a new one in Berlin. Soros has faced pressure in Hungary.
A pro-government magazine has published the names of hundreds of Viktor Orban critics, including academics, civil rights activists and journalists. Does the news mark a new step in Hungary's ongoing political escalation?
Hungary is set to vote on possible criminal penalties against individuals or groups accused of supporting illegal migrants. It's called the "Stop Soros" bill; Orban's government has accused the financier of many things.
