If an NGO continued with such activity, Hungarian prosecutors could act to withdraw the NGO’s tax number, essentially paralyzing them, slap them with heavy fines and ultimately dissolve them.

Activists who organize or support migration could also face restraining orders preventing them from approaching the EU’s external borders in Hungary.
