Article 5 and 9, extracts from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – Mr. Saka is put in jail and abused. He is accused of theft because he bought a used car, unaware of its dubious origin But justice is unfair; Saka calls a lawyer but cannot afford his fees so the lawyer just leaves him in the cell, handing him a useless paper; the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This declaration states that no man can be arbitrarily arrested, detained or exiled.
