Know Your Rights!
Short movie on the rights of suspects in Hungary
What happens to me if I am suspected with committing a criminal offence in Hungary?
May I ask the police officer what the suspicion is against me?
May I ask the police officer to explain my rights to me?
Do I have to answer to all questions of the police officers?
Do I always have the right to a lawyer?
What happens if I do not have enough money to pay for a lawyer?
How long will I be detained initially, and what happens to me after that?
May I read the files of my case? May I receive a copy of them?
Do I have a right to know on what basis the prosecutor requests my pre-trial detention?
These are important questions for those who are suspected with committing a criminal offence in Hungary, and the Hungarian Helsinki Committee’s short movie provides an answer to them. Because it is good to know you rights.
