Govt Submits “Stop Soros” Bill To Parliament
Hungary is ready for debates about its “Stop Soros” package of bills, a senior government official said on Tuesday, before the package was submitted to parliament.

The “Stop Soros” package criminalises the organisation of illegal migration, making it punishable by imprisonment.

In the debates about the bill, the Hungarian government will consistently prioritise the country’s security interests, Csaba Dömötör, the state secretary of the Cabinet Office, told a press conference.

Dömötör said the bill reflected the result of last month’s general election, arguing that on April 8, Hungarians had voted to protect Hungary from illegal migration.
