The government of Hungary is planning to pass new laws that would shut down a major university founded and funded by liberal billionaire George Soros.
According to POLITICO, legislation proposed in the Hungarian parliament would revoke the institution’s ability to award degrees.
The move is part of a wider crackdown on the influence of foreign money in Hungarian politics.
Soros was born in Hungary, and spends significant sums on non-profits in the country, but is a naturalized US citizen.
