In Hungary there is a wide range of acts of corruption forbidden by criminal law. As of 1 April 2002 the measures of penal law applicable in the crackdown on corruption were further extended. In the Hungarian Criminal Code the system of corruption offences are as follows: bribery (official bribery, economic bribery, bribery in connection with hindering of official procedure), failure to report bribery, trading in influence, persecution of a conveyor of an announcement of public concern, crimes against the propriety of international affairs. Furthermore passive forms of bribery are traditionally judged more strictly than active bribery patterns. As regards the comparison of official and economic bribery, the degree of penal law sanctioning gradually came closer time to time. The criminal law regulation on bribery in international relations was introduced by Act of 1998 with due consideration to the OECD's Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions. The sanctioning of bribery offences committed in national and international relationships is very similar in the Hungarian Criminal Code.

This interdisciplinary study shall explore the implications of coercive conduct in the course of criminal procedures, both in the legal theoretical and the practical sense of the term. We shall make a distinction between legal-necessary and illegal-unnecessary coercive conduct and the forms of its implementation. These issues will be analysed in the respective stages of the procedure (investigation-detention-court trial-law enforcement). The study will explore the issue both from the viewpoint of the victim and the parties concerned in the procedure, who are subjected to coercive conduct, furthermore will highlight the major features of the offences affecting them. It shall discuss victimisation catalysts and their functions and finally, assess the ways of reducing the potential of related secondary victimisation.

The author made a research over the past six years, and gathered data regarding confrontation as truth-seeking method in the criminal procedure. He analysed the Hungarian legal rules of confrontation in historical and recent time and claimed that the concept and the types (classification) of confrontation was clear. As an evidentiary procedure, it can be well demarcated and distinguished from other applicable means of seeking the truth in CPA and beyond it in the area of criminal-tactics. Thus, from interrogation, identification parade, attempt to prove, crime scene interrogation, search/body search, parallel hearing of experts, polygraph and cross-examination. Above all you can read a few amendment proposals of the statutory regulation of confrontation.
