The Hungarian government is set to submit a tightened “Stop Soros” legislative package on Tuesday, it has been revealed.

Gergely Gulyás, the minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office, said that after the submission and agreement of the new legislative package, the organization of illegal immigration will be a criminal law scenario in the Penal code.

Gulyás highlighted that the government discussed the “Stop Soros” legislative package and the proposed constitutional amendment to be adopted in conjunction with the package.

He said these will be presented to Parliament next week, and the relevant parliamentary debate may begin the week after, adding that this is what they received as a mandate. The point is to protect Hungary from immigration and its organizers.

The minister said that, as part of the proposal of the Ministry of Interior, the law on the police, the Penal Code, the law on asylum, the law on the state borders and the law on offences will be amended.

They will lay down in the new legislation that the organization of illegal immigration is an illegal act, and a relevant criminal scenario will be accordingly incorporated into the Penal Code.
