“I will follow up with the Government of the Sudan on issues of concern that I identified during my mission in February 2017, and discuss the status of implementation of the recommendations contained in my report of September 2016 to the Human Rights Council,” Nononsi said in a statement issued on Tuesday.

The expert is expected to follow up on the implementation of the recommendations made by other human rights mechanisms, including those from the Universal Periodic Review (UPR), during his visit.

According to the U.N. the independent expert on Sudan will meet with relevant stakeholders, including the Sudanese authorities, civil society actors, academia, community leaders, members of the diplomatic corps, and UN entities to ensure all relevant information is reflected in his next report to the U.N Human Rights Council (HRC).

As part of his eleventh day visit, Nononsi, who was invited by the Sudanese government, will hold meetings in Khartoum and Blue Nile.

Meanwhile the independent expert is expected to present his findings and recommendations to the U.N Human Rights Council in September 2017.
