                Notice of October 19, 2005

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Significant Narcotics Traffickers Centered 
                in Colombia

                On October 21, 1995, by Executive Order 12978, the 
                President declared a national emergency pursuant to the 
                International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 
                1701-1706) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary 
                threat to the national security, foreign policy, and 
                economy of the United States constituted by the actions 
                of significant narcotics traffickers centered in 
                Colombia, and the extreme level of violence, 
                corruption, and harm such actions cause in the United 
                States and abroad.

                The order blocks all property and interests in property 
                of foreign persons listed in an annex to the order that 
                are in the United States or within the possession or 
                control of U.S. persons, as well as of foreign persons 
                determined to play a significant role in international 
                narcotics trafficking centered in Colombia. The order 
                similarly blocks all property and interests in property 
                of foreign persons determined to materially assist in, 
                or provide financial or technological support for or 
                goods or services in support of, the narcotics 
                trafficking activities of persons designated in or 
                pursuant to the order, or persons determined to be 
                owned or controlled by, or to act for or on behalf of, 
                persons designated in or pursuant to the order. The 
                order also prohibits any transaction or dealing by 
                United States persons or within the United States in 
                such property or interests in property.

                Because the actions of significant narcotics 
                traffickers centered in Colombia continue to threaten 
                the national security, foreign policy, and economy of 
                the United States and to cause an extreme level of 
                violence, corruption, and harm in the United States and 
                abroad, the national emergency declared on October 21, 
                1995, and the measures adopted pursuant thereto to deal 
                with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond 
                October 21, 2005. Therefore, in accordance with section 
                202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 
                1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national 
                emergency with respect to significant narcotics 
                traffickers centered in Colombia. This notice shall be 
                published in the Federal Register and transmitted to 
                the Congress.

                    (Presidential Sig.)B

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    October 19, 2005.
