ABSTRACT
The present paper focuses on presenting the legal guarantees which accompany the lawful arrest or detention, especially as they are configured in Article 5 of the European Convention of Human Rights and the related case law of the European Court of Human Rights. The right to liberty and security of person, acknowledged in all the major international instruments, is a key component of the European culture of protecting the human rights, which has also been minutely incorporated into the Romanian legislation. Although the right to liberty and security is considered inviolable in all democracies, there can be justified exceptions in which the exercise of this right is limited,' it is not only required for them to be lawful, but also any derogation must strictly conform to the provisions laid down by the law so as to avoid any arbitrary act from the part of the authorities.
