Stop Soros bill before Parliament soon

The Stop Soros legislative package will be submitted to Parliament before the start of the spring session on February 19, Magyar Idők reported on Monday.

Drafting of the bill is under way, it wrote.

The bill would compel NGOs that aid asylum-seekers to pay a 25% tax on donations received from outside Hungary.

It would also prevent activists from working near Hungary’s southern borders, and is expected to include provisions on deporting foreign nationals engaged in helping asylum-seekers anywhere in Hungary.
