The now scandal-ridden Amnesty International is refusing to obey the ruling by the Standards in Public Office which ordered it to return a donation of €137,000 to the Open Societies Foundation, which is run by multi-Billionaire George Soros.

The massive illegal donation was made in order to support Amnesty International’s pro-choice campaign in the run up to Ireland’s referendum on the 8th Amendment.

The donation was deemed illegal as it was in breach of Ireland’s laws forbidding foreign donors from contributing more than €100 to political campaigns.

Amnesty International has dedicated an inordinate amount of its resources in Ireland to pushing abortion liberalisation. Executive director of Amnesty Ireland, an embattled Colm O’Gorman, who’s said to be paid a six figure sum, appears to be fighting against the ruling judging by his tweets.

George Soros and his NGO’s have been the subject of stringent criticism for attempting to influence the national policies of various government’s including pushing open borders, liberalisation and abortion.

Soros was most recently called out in the EU parliament as having wide reaching, pervasive influence over the political bloc.

The Liberal understands that a group of “concerned Irish citizens” will be going to the High Court this week seeking an injunction to force Amnesty to return the money.
