Freedom is one of the foundational constitutional values in the 1996 Constitution. When interpreting the Bill of Rights, a court must 'promote' this value along with the other two foundational values of human dignity and equality. These values also serve as the lodestar in guiding the interpretation of legislation, the development of the common law and customary law, as well as for assessing the justifiability of limitations to the rights in the Bill of Rights.
