Right to Liberty and Security

The right to liberty is a broad concept, which must be considered not only in the context of the lawfulness of detention, arrest or forced placement of persons in a medical institution, but also in the context of the appointment for the duty of State service and the ensuring of the functioning of critical State infrastructure. The right to liberty and security is not absolute and may be restricted in accordance with the procedures and to the extent prescribed by law. Deprivation of liberty may be justified only in cases and in accordance with the procedures laid down by law. It must be justified and cannot happen arbitrarily.

Example: A security company detains a person on suspicion of committing a property offence, without explaining further legal procedures.
