Abstract

The paper presents the methodology of the procedure used under the Hungarian legal system in cases of violent death and compares it with the methodology that is obligatory in Poland. It is shown that the Hungarian system is more formalised and leaves less leeway for the person leading the investigation as s/he is constrained by fairly detailed regulations. The Polish system, on the other hand, is more open, a significant part of the decision-making process being conferred onto the person leading the investigation, leaving him/her with a free hand in a whole series of procedural decisions.
