Open Society said it would continue to support the work of civil society groups in Hungary on issues such as human rights, arts and culture, media freedom, transparency, and education and health care.

Walmart, Flipkart seal $16 bn e-commerce deal
US-based Walmart Inc has signed a deal to buy 77 per cent stake in e-commerce company Flipkart for $16 billion. Here, it is worth mentioning that Flipkart is an Indian e-commerce giant.


The prime minister views Soros as an intruder into the country's domestic politics, which are more and more being painted by Europe's growing 2015 migrant crisis.

Over the past two years, the Hungarian government has spent more than 100 million euros in public funds on a campaign to spread lies about the Foundations and their partners.

Patrick Gaspard, president of the Open Society Foundations, said on Tuesday that Budapest had "denigrated and misrepresented" the organization's work and repressed civil society "for the sake of political gain".

The campaign was criticized in the Hungarian Jewish community as having anti-Semitic overtones.

The foundations have been a frequent target of the Hungarian government, and Orban himself has painted Soros as a shadowy figure seeking to undermine the country's sovereignty.

Central European University, another institution established by Soros in Budapest and also facing government pressure, has previously announced plans for a satellite campus in Vienna.
