Hungary tough on “Stop Soros”

Hungary’s government will submit a tougher version of the “Stop Soros” bill to parliament next week, adding criminal penalties for groups accused of financing illegal immigration, according to Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s chief of staff. “The bill has been tightened… to state that the organization and financing of illegal migration should be punished,” Gergely Gulyas said on Thursday after a government meeting. The legislation will empower the interior minister to ban non-government organizations that support migration and are seen as a national security risk, Reuters said.
