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 university trustees have set a deadline of December 1 for an agreement to be signed so its legal status in Hungary is resolved. If not, new students will be heading to Vienna for their courses.
The Hungarian government of Viktor Orban imposed a 25 percent tax on activities assisting immigration. Billionaire George Soros had already transferred administration from Hungary to Berlin ahead of tougher laws.
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.
It's the most visible step by Prime Minister Viktor Orban's government against "gender madness," but it's also part of a broader ideological offensive — one that takes aim at moderates in the ruling Fidesz party, too.
