Soros-backed foundation leaving Hungary

Poland's Prime Minister Morawiecki meets his Hungarian counterpart Orban in Warsaw

Open Society Foundations will move its worldwide operations in Budapest to Berlin in Germany, according to a press release Tuesday.

The legislation is branded as "Stop Soros" and the Hungarian government warned on Monday that legislative measures may yet become tighter.

The move follows a decision by the Hungarian government to tighten a bill dubbed "Stop Soros" that would restrict the work of Hungarian non-governmental organizations that receive foreign funding.

Rights groups in Hungary and overseas have denounced the proposals as a way of cracking down on groups critical of the government.

Orban, who won a landslide victory in the April elections, has repeatedly accused Soros and his organization in support of migrants and undermining national culture.

Loew will need to present his final squad selection to Federation Internationale de Football Association by June 4. Germany will begin its World Cup defense with group games against Mexico, Sweden and South Korea.

This included criticizing the migration of influx of Muslim migrants into Europe and attacking forces that Orban believed were trying to push a pro-immigration agenda, including Soros. The Hungarian government opposes the Open Society's open immigration policies.

Open Society Foundations, the George Soros backed organization that has helped create the economic migrant crisis in Europe, is leaving the Central European nation of Hungary, declaring it can not "protect its employees from government".

"The government of Hungary has denigrated and misrepresented our work and repressed civil society for the sake of political gain, using tactics unprecedented in the history of the European Union", said Patrick Gaspard, president of the Open Society Foundations, reported CNBC.

Some Hungarian Jews, in addition to Soros himself, find the campaign anti-Semitic.

The foundation backed by the Hungarian-born United States billionaire is set to move its staff to the German capital of Berlin.

The OSF's move is created to circumvent Hungarian legislation against foreign-funded NGOs, which emulates the Russian model.
