Dear visitor,

The duty of the Pro­se­cu­ti­on Ser­vi­ce of Hun­gary for the last 150 years has been to secu­re safety and to ensure the laws of Hun­ga­ri­an soci­ety.

To be a pro­se­cu­tor is not only an occu­pa­ti­on, but also a pro­fes­si­on: an exci­ting and diver­se but often chal­leng­ing one. Our aim is to gua­ran­tee that acts harm­ful to soci­al co-existence have legal con­se­qu­en­ces and by punish­ing per­pet­ra­tors to pro­vi­de some form of reme­di­es and pro­tec­ti­on for the vic­tims of crime.

The Pro­se­cu­ti­on Ser­vi­ce moni­tors cri­mi­nal cases from the beg­in­ning of the investiga­ti­on until the deli­very of the final ver­dict. We also have impor­tant dut­i­es and res­pon­si­bi­li­ti­es out­si­de the field of cri­mi­nal law, par­ti­cu­larly in pro­tec­ting child and juve­ni­le rights and in envi­ron­ment and con­su­mer pro­tec­ti­on.

On our web­site, among others, we deli­ver the latest news, give some prac­ti­cal infor­ma­ti­on about the acti­vi­ti­es of the Pro­se­cu­ti­on Ser­vi­ce and pro­vi­de the con­tact deta­ils of Pro­se­cu­ti­on Offi­ces.

The main aim of our web­site is to make our goals, our work and our achi­eve­ments acces­sib­le to the gene­ral pub­lic as pub­lic ser­vi­ce has always been the pri­ma­ry task of the Pro­se­cu­ti­on Ser­vi­ce and will con­ti­nue to be so in the futu­re.


Pro­se­cu­tor Gene­ral Dr. Péter Polt has sub­mit­ted to Par­lia­ment the annu­al report about the acti­vi­ti­es of the Pro­se­cu­ti­on Ser­vi­ce of Hun­gary last year.
