comment What were the Nazi racial views on Hungarians and the Japanese?
@Noldorin sclavus meant prisoner, slave in Latin, that's all. It is cognate to clavis "key", conclave "locked room", enclave "isolated area". Further cognates include English close, clue, claw. It is an old IE root (klea̯u̯is = hook, bolt in PIE). The word cannot derive from Slave because of /k/ in the second position.

@DVK Well the capturing person definitely can use force to prevent the captured person from leaving. Or do you mean a situation when the captured person would be additionally punished by the court for trying to escape the capturer?

@DVK this depends of what you mean under arrest, but it definitely included deprivation of freedom.
