Brussels launches infringement proceedings against Hungary – Politico.eu

The European Commission on Thursday said it was launching infringement proceedings against Hungary over the country’s law on foreign-funded NGOs.

At the same time, the Commission also decided to take a second step in its infringement procedure regarding Hungary’s Higher Education Law, known as “Lex CEU,” which critics believe targets the Budapest-based Central European University, founded by the billionaire George Soros.

Hungary has been widely criticized for both laws, which many observers at home and abroad believe were designed to weaken independent institutions.
