The “network” of US billionaire George Soros will continue to attack Hungary even in 2018, with operations in the country, as well as in Brussels and in the United States, a lawmaker of ruling Fidesz said on Sunday.
“The Soros network” will attempt to meddle in the election campaign with the “clear purpose of removing the Orbán government,” Gyula Budai told a press conference.
He referred to “a report drafted by Soros-sponsored US Democratic senators denouncing Hungary”, the “anti-Hungary debate in Brussels”, the recent visit to Budapest by green MEP Judith Sargentini, who is preparing a report on rule of law in Hungary, and “a pro-migrant conference hosted by the [Budapest CEU] Soros university” as operations directed by Soros.
Budai said representatives of the “Soros network” had also been present at this week’s court hearing of the case of Ahmed H, a Syrian national convicted under terrorism charges in connection with a mass disturbance at the Röszke border crossing in 2015.
The lawmaker urged government measures to prevent the activities of “the Soros network”.
