UN decoration of human rights

Article No 14.

Article No 14

This article states : Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution. This right may not be invoked in the case of prosecutions genuinely arising from non-political crimes or from acts contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations

My Interpretation

The article means that if someone were to hurt someone else in any way, the person that was injured/hurt has the right to go to another country to ask for protection. it also means that if the person that was hurt had killed someone before, the person would lose this right. It also states another way to lose the right is to not respect the article.


If a former criminal were recently released and was attacked by someone who held a grudge against them, if the criminal went to the government to ask for protection from another attack, the government would refuse due to the criminal being sent to jail before for murder
