Sudan is the 172nd party to the CAT and the 64th party to the ICPPED. Sudan's ratification of the CAT included a declaration that it will not be bound by Article 30(1) relating to the settlement of disputes under the Convention. Similarly, its accession to the ICPPED included a declaration that it will not be bound by that Convention's dispute settlement provision in Article 42(1). Both provide for the eventual settlement of disputes before the International Court of Justice.
