Abstract: Whenever we type the word „corruption” in any of the internetbased search programs, it gives nearly 20 million results, and the fact is, that hundreds of international conferences focus on the socalled “today’s plague” phenomenon every year. Nowadays it is hard to say anything new about one of our greatest common enemy to date, that spreads across the globe, corruption. The roots of abuse and misuse carried out to reach individual goals, backed by rights delegated by the community,1 date back to thousands of years.

Keywords: corruption; economic deficit; passive and active corruption; recent Hungarian Criminal Code.
