Introduction to Britain

Criminal Procedure

A criminal case always starts with a criminal offence which is investigated by the police. Once they have sufficient evidence against a particular person, they usually arrest the suspect. If somebody is arrested, he or she must be brought before a court (usually a magistrates’ court) within 24 hours for lesser offences and within 96 hours for more serious crime (but in that case, the police have to get an arrest warrant from a court after 36 hours). The court’s task is to determine whether the criminal charge against the arrested person is supported by sufficient evidence. If the court decides that there is not enough evidence to keep the person in custody, he or she must be released. A person who thinks that he or she has been arrested unlawfully may apply to the High Court for a writ of habeas corpus.129 A writ of habeas corpus orders that an arrested person must appear before the court which determines whether he or she has been arrested for a serious reason. The habeas corpus is one of the fundamental civil rights which guards the individual against illegal imprisonment and, in this way, against the tyranny of the state.

This book attempts to establish a basic knowledge of British politics, society and culture among its readers. It is aimed primarily at students, and is intended to enrich their knowledge of the English language with an understanding of the history and key features of this society.

The book systematically explores Britain. Beginning with its geography, it divides the United Kingdom into its overarching countries- England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland- and explores the main regions, as well as political, social and linguistic background of each. This is followed by outlines of politics, the legal system, as well as education, healthcare and religion in the UK as a whole.

This book is distinguished by its scope; intended for a Hungarian audience and written through the lens of Hungarian culture, with so called Think of Hungary First sections at the beginning of chapters to compare historical and societal developments to those that have taken place here, and allow readers to better understand these. There are also lists of Key Concepts at the end of chapters, and explanations of these which also promote the reader’s understanding.

Thus, this book is a comprehensive and systematic guide, introducing Hungarian students to Britain’s history, culture and people.
