The group recommends that the Human Rights Council continue the process of review in
accordance with the time frames and indicators for assessing implementation developed by the
group. While emphasizing that, as Human Rights Council resolution 4/8 clearly indicates, the
group was established to ensure the effective follow-up and implementation of existing
resolutions and recommendations on Darfur, and stressing the complementary nature of its
mandate and that of the wider mandate of the Special Rapporteur on the Sudan, which covers all
of the Sudan, the group indicates its readiness to continue the review process, unless this task is
entrusted to the Special Rapporteur on the Sudan. It suggests that a renewed mandate should
envisage the possibility of an assessment mission to the Sudan, including its Darfur region, and
sufficient time for analysis of the implementation of medium-term recommendations, which
expire on 20 June 2008.
