Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, we could read both (a) and (b) into it, though note:

  • the investigation was done by the national police, and the culprits are likely to be found in the (rather autonomous) Budapest police -- so it's more like one police branch finding it easy to criticise another;
  • maybe this investigation could have been done back in September;
  • I didn't mention that all the criticism is mentioned in a kind of implicite fashion -- this is an investigation was meant as analysis for decisionmakers and not as judgement, and I also note the report praises policemen in general terms throughout;
  • No names were made public.

There really doesn't seem to be anyone (group or individual) who's coming out of this looking good.

Indeed, except for humanitarian NGOs who do some legal work and protest. But it is next to impossible to convince anyone from one cold civil war side that their side is wrong and immoral too.
