E. Sylvester Vizi, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Friends of Hungary Foundation and former President of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, has released the following statement to Hungary Today in connection with the controversial situation of the Central European University (CEU):
We do not possess all the information that would be necessary to obtain a complete assessment of the situation. However, I have expressed my concerns personally in an informal way. I can claim surely that the government wants to resolve the issue in form of negotiations and also that nor the activity of the Central European University, neither the freedom of science and research are in danger. In my opinion, the freedom of science and research is fundamental. I am convinced that the Hungarian government continues to guarantee the freedom of science and research.
