Right to Life

The European conventions for the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms guarantee the right to life and determine the circumstances in which deprivation of life can be justified. It is one of the most important clauses in the European Convention on Human Rights, from which no derogation is allowed. The State must take the necessary steps to prevent unjustified loss of life and is obligated to investigate suspicious deaths and to refrain from unlawful killings.

Example: A person has taken their own life, but loved ones suspect that they have been deliberately encouraged by someone.
