The George Soros Open Society Foundation moves from Budapest to Berlin

Hungary’s stance is that it’s not only legitimate but necessary in a democratic society to require transparency of NGOs receiving funding from abroad in order to prevent them from being misused for foreign political goals

The George Soros Open Society Foundation has completed its move from Budapest to Berlin and has already started operating in the German capital.

According to reports, eighty employees, along with their families, upped and moved from the Hungarian capital to continue their work in Berlin.

Goran Buldioski, director of the foundation’s offices, revealed that the organization plans on employing 150 people.

Soros is widely believed to be behind the wave of migrants coming to Europe, and his foundation is not welcomed in Hungary.

The Hungarian Parliament recently passed a new law on NGOs that aims to improve transparency among civil society groups, specifically those receiving funding from outside of Europe.
