George Soros charity damns Viktor Orban for '€100m spent on lies'

Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban smiles prior to a swearing-in ceremony for members of the new Hungarian parliament

The decision to move operations from Budapest is justified by the fact that the Hungarian government "is ready to impose additional restrictions on non-governmental organizations through what it called the package of legislation "Stop Soros".

'It has become impossible to protect the security of our operations and our staff in Hungary, ' Open Society Foundations said.

Earlier this year, citing national security concerns, his government announced a so-called "Stop Soros" package of laws aimed at tightening rules for NGOs receiving funding from overseas. In addition, the new law bans NGO activity geared towards migrant human rights advocacy.

The Open Society Foundation (OSF) backed by Hungarian-born U.S. billionaire George Soros is moving from Budapest to Berlin, the German public broadcaster DW reported on Tuesday.

She can stretch her limbs to great lengths and widths, as well, grow herself up or shrink herself down... and, back again. And despite the vague "definitely sort of" announcement, fans are really excited.

Orban's Fidesz also ran an anti-immigrant billboard campaign, underwritten by the Hungarian government, which showed a picture of Soros laughing alongside the words, "Let's not leave Soros the last laugh". Pro-government media recently began publishing false accusations about individual academics, civil society members, and Foundations staff. The Hungarian government opposes the Open Society's open immigration policies. One law proposed by Orban would levee steep taxes against any organization that worked with refugees or promoted refugee rights. The Foundations are taking appropriate steps regarding the safety and well-being of those affected by the office relocation.

Before the parliamentary elections in April, orbán said that in Hungary there are about 2000 paid people who during the election campaign, are working to overthrow the government and establish a new "pomegrante study, acceptable to George Soros". He launched his first foundation in Hungary in 1984, using it to promote freedom of expression and thought during the last years of Communism, and then to support the transition to democracy.

OSF cited the safety of its more than 100 employees in Hungary as well as the security of its operations there, which fund dozens of NGOs in the country of 10 million.
