OCHA clarification on Sudan

Report
from UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs
Published on 12 Jun 2009
New York - The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs wishes to clarify media reports published on 11 and 12 June 2009 reporting that four expelled non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have been granted the right to operate again in Sudan by the Sudanese authorities.

The four NGOs referred to in the reports should not be characterized as "returning" NGOs. While from related organizational families, they are not the same, and have been registered in Sudan as new INGO implementing groups and authorized to open new operations in the Sudan on that basis.
