Jobbik uses the sad fact of the double murder in Deák Square for political gain
While the number of crimes in Hungary is decreasing year by year (including all crimes and the number of intentional homicides), Jobbik uses the news of the recent murder in Budapest in a vile, demagogic way for agitprop activities. One of the statements of the Gyurcsányist party before Sándor Pintér before 2010 was taken out of the context and is presented as if Sándor Pintér had promised that there would be no murder. Since it is not possible to put a police officer next to every fool (although such a card would not harm László Györgyök Lukács), crimes have always been, are and will be, the question is what the state is doing to reduce their number.
In a comment, we place a figure that clearly shows the trend of the last 10 years, so it’s not just about snatched numbers, it’s a process.

The number of homicides in Hungary is decreasing year by year.
The number of intentional, completed homicides registered in police proceedings in 2017 was 90 in the country; There were 78 such cases in 2018 and 58 in 2019.
Divided into one hundred thousand inhabitants (9.79 million inhabitants), the ratio was 0.92 in 2017, 0.79 in 2018 and 0.59 in 2019.
In addition to the behavior of offenders, the efficiency of police work and measures taken in the field of crime prevention, changes in criminal statistics may also be the result of changes introduced in the Criminal Code. Given that such an amendment falls within the examined time interval, it is necessary to keep in mind the relevant changes of the new Penal Code (hereinafter: the Criminal Code), which entered into force on 1 July 2013, when analyzing and interpreting the data. It is important to emphasize that the number of crimes that are given priority is covered by the Criminal Code. resulted in a significant decrease after the change, ie also between 2013-2018, so the decrease experienced during the period 2010-2018 examined in the analysis is not only due to the Criminal Code. triggered by an amendment.
Another significant methodological information is that the values of the indicators to be included in the PRE-STAT system are displayed according to the time of registration, which does not necessarily coincide with the time of the offense. The data of the ENYÜBS are linked to criminal offenses, so in the case, for example, if a defendant commits several criminal offenses with one act (eg there are several victims), then not one but several criminal offenses appear in the statistics.
