No state has ever managed to redeem society from crime. States may be strong enough to punish induvidual offences but they are not strong enough to improve public morality. Therefor the implementation of punishment should not be the sole response of crime. The Government of the Republic of Hungary favours a criminal policy which does confine itself to determining punishable conducts, but which also aims at modernizing criminal justice, reducing the burdens of the administration of justice and the costs of the correctional service, assisting and indemnifying the victims of crime and appeasing the aggrieved community.
