BUDAPEST - George Soros' foundation said on Tuesday it would close its office in Budapest and move to Berlin, leaving what it called "an increasingly repressive political and legal environment" in Hungary.
The pro-democracy group said it was pulling out a day after the right-wing government of Prime Minister Viktor Orban announced it would tighten restrictions on non-governmental organizations, under a law dubbed the "Stop Soros " bill.
Orban, who won a landslide election victory last month, has repeatedly accused Soros and his organization of encouraging migrants and undermining the national culture.
Soros's Open Society Foundations (OSF) organization said it would continue to support human rights work in Hungary as well as projects linked to arts, media freedom, transparency, education and health care.
But it would move its Budapest-based international operations and staff to Germany.
"The government of Hungary has denigrated and misrepresented our work and repressed civil society for the sake of political gain, using tactics unprecedented in the history of the European Union," OSF president Patrick Gaspard said in a statement.
Opposition and rights groups have long said that a departure of the OSF would mark a milestone in a slide towards authoritarian rule in Hungary and go against the principles of the EU - a charge dismissed by the government.

“Now, stay TFO!”
Mohammedans => 0.3%
You must be Rick and Morty fan, or , at least , hungry for apples.
Projection, all I see is left wing projection.
Soros probably is moving it because of possible risk of asset seizure.
Make their last day a national holiday, Orban.
And/or evidence seizure.
Got him on the run.
Theres a killer on the road, his brain is squirming like a toad The End Jim Morrison
Sorry. Riders on the storm.
Orban should not let them get away to Berlin. They will still be causing a lot of treasonous crimes, albeit from afar.
Now is the time to go on offense. Round them all up and execute them. Orban will be doing the world a great favor.
Soros knows the gig is up in Hungary. What other perfect place to set up shop, then Berlin?
It’s another great move by Orban!
Stomped that cockroach!
Victor Orban is truly a great man. If America and Europe want to salvage any sort of a future, he is the model.
Hungary and Poland are lighting the way for Christian civilization.
It’s a shame that no one was injured.
