Criminal Law Featured

Throughout my career I have represented clients in the following areas of Criminal Law:
  • economic criminal law
  • criminal acts related to the abuse of drugs 
  • traffic  violations
  • libel and slander
In the criminal procedure the underlying principle of the Constitution is the right to defense and the presumption of innocence. In the course of the defense concerning criminal affairs I also consider the above principle my "ars poetica".
In the criminal procedure I can represent either the accused or the victim, since legal assistance is obligatory in the supplementary private prosecution procedure. 
I perform the duties in the investigation and the judicial phase, and potentially in the review of judgment and reconsideration phases.
I represent clients not only in Budapest, but also in other Hungarian cities.

Arrested in Hungary - Extradition

Since Hungary is a member state of the European Union, EU law is authoritative here, too. There are strict rules in connection with European warrant of arrest. Arrested people in Hungary can only remain in detention for 72 hours, and they must be taken in front of the Metropolitan Court of Law (Fővárosi Törvényszék) within this time frame. Arrested people have the right for a defense lawyer. The Court holds a trial about the case (the warrant), where the attorney must be present with the arrested person, and a state prosecutor represents Hungary. The presence of an interpreter is necessary too; it is the right of the arrested person, and an obligation for the state of Hungary. The Court has to examine whether the conditions of the warrant’s execution are met, or is it legally possible to extradite the arrested person to his/her state of residence. If the conditions of extradition are met, the arrested people have the right to choose whether they approve of the extradition.
