"I send you my total support to the Central European University in this difficult circumstances. I am not surprised that the Hungarian government is threatening this institution whose quality and prestigious researchers and teachers are honoring the country. There is no doubt that the menaces against the Central European University are an insidious attack to the culture of freedom, and writers, intellectuals and academics who believe in freedom should mobilize to avoid this inquisitorial action. Please convey my warmest solidarity to president Michael Ignatieff."
Mario Vargas Llosa
