selinux in fedora conflict with ovpn

Having fedora 20 64bit installed, I have this old problem of conflicting openvpn and selinux. Obviously selinux prevents openvpn to launch.

The openvpn has been set through Network Connection and I have three files:

user certificate as: cer.pem
CA certificate as: ca.pem
Private key as: key.pem

some solutions say that I should move certificate files in to ~/.cert and then launch

restorecon -R -v ~/.cert
and then selinux will allow the access to the certificates.

BUT, before I launch openvpn, I had saved these certificates in Documents/certificates folder. Ofcourse when I execute

mv ~/Documents/certificates/cer.pem ~/.cert
The file will be moved to ~/.cert and in Network Connections there would be no certificates.

I have tried to used cp instead of mv but that did not help and still I have this old problem of conflict.

Would someone please help me solve this problem?
