Central European University has ended a program for refugees, following the implementation of the “Stop Soros” law.
The Hungarian Prime Minister has already said that migration is a burden on the state budget. The law package approved by the Hungarian government came into effect last week and it restricts non-governmental organizations which helps migrants, charging them with a 25 percent tax.
CEU announced suspending of such a program. The University also said that its programs were “only for persons legally admitted to Hungary.”
Some non-profit organizations have also announced the end of their activities. These include, for example, the Migration Aid, which provided blankets, food and other life needs as well as medical and legal aid.
In May, the billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Foundations moved staff and offices from Hungary to Germany.
