Description
Summary:In Hungary, (there) it is possible to sentence an adult offender for life without parole. It is not a new institution in our law. From 1993 it is a potential penalty for offenders, who were sentenced to life sentence before, and the second sentence is a life sentence, too. It was the first time when the court could determine the impossibility of parole. From 1993 till 1999, there was nobody in prison without any prospect of release. In 1998, the penal code was changed, and from this time on, more and more crimes’ penalty was life sentence. To our days, the court meted out this penalty 19 times. The change from 1 January 2012 is that the Constitution admits the equity of life sentences without parole. The Constitutional Court cannot examine from now these paragraphs with the European human rights standards. More to this, there is harder to change the rules of the Constitution than the criminal code. Some international organizations (i.e. European Commission for Democracy through Law) reflect fear from this paragraph. I expect that the Government will see that the safety of people won’t reduce if we don’t curtail the offenders with the hope of release.
