Soros will no longer work in Hungary

Viktor Orban and Mateusz Morawiecki in Warsaw

The document also specified that the move is a necessary reaction to the actions of Prime Minister Orban, directed against non-governmental organizations. The law was termed the "Stop Soros" bill. The step raises the stakes in Prime Minister Viktor Orban's standoff with the European Union as he seeks to complete a break with liberal democracy after winning a third consecutive term in elections last month.

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

Soros' Open Society Foundations is shifting local staff to Berlin, the group said in a statement Tuesday.

During an official visit to Poland on Monday, Orban described the "Stop Soros" package as one of the most important issues in the election. Last year, Peter Szijjarto, the country's foreign affairs minister, accused Soros himself of posing such a risk, claiming the philanthropist wanted to "settle hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants in Europe and Hungary".

The campaign was criticized in the Hungarian Jewish community as having anti-Semitic overtones.

That news will strike a hammer blow to Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo who is interested in teaming up with Hamilton at Mercedes next term.

"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", Patrick Gaspard, president of the Open Society Foundations, said in a statement.

Government pressure shows no sign of easing, however: Mr Orban said recently that he would not "shed crocodile tears" over the OSF, and he backed a pro-government magazine's publication of a list of more than 200 Hungarian NGO staff, academics and journalists whom it called "Soros mercenaries".

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".

Another Soros institution funded by Soros, Budapest's Central European University, may also be forced to shutter operations in Hungary.
