Hungary to penalize NGOs that aid illegal immigration – official

Hungary’s government will submit a new version of its “Stop Soros” bill to parliament on Tuesday, imposing criminal penalties on groups accused of supporting or financing illegal immigration, Reuters quoted a senior government politician as saying on Tuesday. The legislation is part of Prime Minister Viktor Orban government’s campaign against George Soros, a Hungarian-born US financier. State Secretary Csaba Domotor told reporters that the text of the new legislation will be made public later in the day. Earlier this month, the billionaire’s foundation decided to shut its office in Budapest and move to Berlin.
