Hungary regularly reports hate crime data to ODIHR. Hungary's criminal code contains several substantive offences. The Ministry of Interior, the Prosecutor's Office and the Criminal Police Department of the National Police Headquarters collect data on hate crime as part of general crime statistics.
A list of bias indicators was created by the Hungarian authorities in co-operation civil society groups to help identify potential hate crimes. The list includes: the perception of the victim or witnesses; the perpetrators' remarks or gestures; perceived or actual group differences; the appearance and behaviour of the victim; previous and later actions of the perpetrator; the appearance of organized hate groups; location; date; the degree of violence; level of publicity; lack of other motivation.
No information is available.
ODIHR observes that the law enforcement agencies of Hungary have not recorded the bias motivations of hate crimes.
