The right to personal liberty is often described as one of the most fundamental human rights in light of its connection to an individual’s physical freedom. The right has a long history in both the common and civil law traditions and has been recognized as part of customary international law (Human Rights Council 2012, A/HRC/22/44, para. 79). From this right derives the expectation that individuals may not be detained or imprisoned without justification.
