After having visited several States, the special court reporter requested the States, including Spain, to inform him about the follow-up of his recommendations. The report contains the recommendation made, the information provided by the government and by non governmental sources. The report is only published in English; however the part concerning Spain (paragraph 560-676) is in Spanish. One of the subjects addressed by the report in relation to Spain is the creation of a national mechanism for the prevention of torture, included in the Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture.

During his visit he examined diverse key questions with the aim of evaluating weather the anti-terrorist measures affect human rights.
