In general, the level of protection and the means used to provide protection of basic human rights, which are universal, indivisible, interdependent, and interrelated, are considered a crucial indicator of development in any society. The rule of law, the fundamental pillar of any stable democratic system, rests on three fundamental principles: the personal integrity of any person must not be violated unless said person violated any law; nobody is above the law, and the rule of the people must be based on the rule of law, in other words, the government guarantees that the law is applied to each member of the society equally, i.e. in accordance with the principle of equality before the law.
