In the same resolution, the Human Rights Council requested the Government of the Sudan and OHCHR to engage constructively to agree on the modalities and mandate for the establishment of a country office no later than September 2019, and to present their oral reports on progress towards the opening of a country office during an enhanced interactive dialogue at the forty-first session of the Council. The present report covers the period from 28 September 2018 to 30 June 2019.1 In compliance with the Code of Conduct for Special Procedures Mandate-holders of the Human Rights Council, a draft report was shared with the Government of the Sudan in order to provide it with an opportunity to comment on the observations and findings of the Independent Expert. The report is based on information made available to the Independent Expert by the Government of the Sudan and by other sources, including civil society organizations working in the Sudan. During the period under review, the Independent Expert was unable to conduct a field visit to the Sudan, as permission from the Sudanese authorities was pending. The Independent Expert expresses his gratitude to the Government of Sudan for its continuous engagement with him, and to all others for sharing information and providing the assistance required.
