Open Society Foundations, funded by US billionaire George Soros, is closing its Budapest office and plans to open a new office in Berlin this summer, the Austrian Press Agency (APA) said on Thursday citing a report by Austrian daily Die Presse.
Die Presse said that OSF President Patrick Gaspard had announced the decision in Budapest.
OSF, which also has an office in Vienna, declined to give a reason for the decision.
APA said Soros apparently yields to the pressure of Hungary’s Orbán government which has been campaigning against him.
