Abstract

Hungary’s modern, ideologically less biased penal code was adopted as Act IV of 1978. This further reduced the number of crimes punishable by death, resulting in a sharp decline in the number of executions in the 1980s. In this context, I review the regulation of the 1978 Penal Code and its impact on criminal case law.
