Preface This report on the civil and political rights submitted to the UN Human Rights Committee was prepared by Sudanese non governmental organizations (NGOs) and Sudanese personalities. It is the first report on the civil and political rights inside the Sudan to be submitted to the above Committee. Special attention was given by us to see to it that the contents of this report are based on principles of credibility and objectivity, bearing in our minds that this report is seen as one of the means to sustain and enhance the human rights in the Sudan, particularly following the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), and issuance of the Interim National Constitution for 2005 which made the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) an integral part of the Sudanese legislation that can be referred to directly which is unprecedented legislative leap in the Sudan. As a result, articles provided for in the ICCPR may directly be used in support of any argument/refutation before the judicial system without the need to have a law issued to legalize such procedure. Based on this, the umbrella of freedoms, civil and political rights will be widely broadened which serve the interests of the Sudanese citizen. Parties involved in the preparation of this report agreed to conduct a discussion on the implications given by Article 9 of the ICCPR in light of the capabilities available to them to enable produce a reasonable and significant report. This report has been classified into the following chapters:
