BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Hungary’s prime minister has claimed that a network funded by Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros is using the European Union to achieve its own aims, including the promotion of mass migration into Europe.
Prime Minister Viktor Orban said Friday on state radio that his country’s intelligence services need to uncover the extent and influence of the network, including its alleged Hungarian members.
Soros’ representatives have rejected similar claims by Orban before, saying they are meant to distract voters from domestic issues.
Orban, to seek his third consecutive term in April, has targeted Soros in negative publicity campaigns.
