Government announces “Stop Soros” law package
The government has adopted a draft package under which “promoters of illegal migration” would be required to share data with the authorities, and would have to pay a 25 percent tax on donations from abroad, Interior Minister Sándor Pintér announced on Wednesday.
Pintér also suggested that Hungarians “organising immigration” could be banned from the Schengen border zone under the new laws. He added that Hungarian citizens cannot be banned from the country, but foreign nationals “might”.
Zoltán Kovács, the government spokesman, referred to the package as “Stop Soros” laws.
Concerning details of the proposed legislation, Pintér said that those “contributing to illegal migration” would be required to share information with a law court, which would keep “accessible” records of the data shared.
The text of the draft will be published on Thursday.
