Protecting your right to the "Security of the person"
Security of the person is a basic entitlement guaranteed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and adopted by the United Nations in 1948. It is also a human right explicitly mentioned and protected by the Constitution of Canada, the Constitution of South Africa and other laws around the world.
In general, the right to the security of ones person is associated with liberty and includes the right, if one is imprisoned unlawfully, to the remedy of habeas corpus. Security of the person can also be seen as an expansion of rights based on prohibitions of torture and cruel and unusual punishment. Rights to security of person can guard against less lethal conduct, and can be used in regard to prisoners' rights.
You have the right to identify with the RGH and no one by law may subjugate these rights from you.
The process to obtain an identity is similar to that of recording a new born. While in many cases it may not be possible to obtain a witness to your birth, you are free to complete an affidavit to attest to the facts. Once the documents have been uploaded to our system and checked by one of our volunteers, a name and identity number will be issued which forms the basis of your babies legal identity.
VIOLATORS OF THIS RIGHT
The right to security of the person is guaranteed by Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In this article, it is combined with the right to life and liberty. In full, the article reads, "Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person."
The United Nations treaty, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (1966), also recognizes a right to security of person. Article 9 states that "Everyone has the right to liberty and security of person," and the section prohibits "arbitrary arrest or detention." The section continues, "No one shall be deprived of his liberty except on such grounds and in accordance with such procedure as are established by law."
Important: You may not be arrested simply by identifying with the RGH. Anyone who arbitrarily arrests a member in this regard will be in violation of article 3 and subjected to a human rights investigation and possible prosecution.
