Right to Liberty

About this right

No one is obliged to do what the law does not command or to deprive himself of what the law does not prohibit, according to our Constitution (art. 8). In other words, people must have the ability to do everything that does not harm the rights of others or affect a legitimately protected interest in a democratic society.  

This right implies the ability to do or not to do everything allowed by law, so that each person can freely organize the model of life he or she wants, according to his or her own convictions and possibilities, within the framework of the law and respecting others. Consequently, no one can be arbitrarily deprived of his physical or ambulatory liberty or of his other rights of freedom, except in accordance with the Constitution and the law.

Personal liberty is a fundamental right without the assurance of which there can be no dignified life.
