Hungary rejects US criticism of law on foreign-funded NGOs

Recommended Posts

Hungary's government said Tuesday that the United States is applying double standards in its criticism of a new law on civic groups that receive funds from foreign donors.

A statement from the government spokesman's office said the U.S. State Department was being "misled" by a disinformation campaign appearing in international media and "strongly assisted by Soros organizations."

At the center of the dispute are some civic groups supported by Hungarian-American financier George Soros, such as the Hungarian Helsinki Committee, a human rights advocate which also provides legal aid to asylum-seekers, and the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union.

"We would like everyone to see which organizations funded from abroad are seeking to influence Hungarian public life and migration policy in accordance with foreign interests," the Hungarian government said. "It is regrettable to see even the U.S. Department of State being misled on this issue."
