Hungary Orders Spies to Target Soros ‘Empire’

Andras Gergely, Bloomberg, October 27, 2017

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban renewed his assault on George Soros.


Intelligence agencies will help evaluate what he sees as efforts by Soros to get Hungary punished by EU institutions pursuing a “mixed-population” continent, Orban said.


Orban’s Fidesz party has increased its backing to 59 percent of decided voters, a Tarki survey published this week showed, reflecting an apparent success of his campaign focused on migration and anti-Soros billboards.


Nationalist Jobbik poised for second place in Hungary, the allure of anti-immigrant and euro-sceptic rhetoric has also extended in gains at last weekend’s election in the Czech Republic.
