The Csemegi Code
During the time following the Austro-Hungarian Compromise the justice arm of the government wanted to develop a modern, European justice system. Great efforts were made to establish a modern system of penal institutions, the prison buildings were enlarged and the salaries of the staff were raised.
The first Hungarian Penal Code (Act V of 1878) is named Csemegi Code after its codificatior Károly Csemegi and it legislated regarding custodial sentence and penal administration. Five regimes of custodial sentence was established in the Csemegi Code: maximum, medium and light regime prisons as well as state custody and custody. The Code emphasises the reintegration of inmates. Before leaving the prison, an intermediary institution was inserted. In 1883 an intermediary institution at Kisharta (today: Állampuszta) was established. The Szeged District Prison was established, in the style of a star in 1885 while the strict regime prison in Sopronkőhida in 1886 and in 1896 in Budapest. The Forensic Psychiatric and Mental Institution was established in 1906. The Budapest Remand Prison was created in 1892.
Until World War I the prison system was made up of 9 National Prisons, 65 city and 315 municipal light regime prisons. Possible number of inmates reached 17.000 while solitary confinement numbers reached 2700.
