                Notice of October 19, 2006

                
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 
                that are in the United States, or within the possession 
                or control of United States persons, of foreign persons 
                listed in an annex to the order, 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. In 
                addition, the order blocks all property and interests 
                in property of 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 property or 
                interests in property of the persons designated in or 
                pursuant to the order.

                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, 2006. Therefore, in accordance with section 
                202(d) of the National Emergencies

[[Page 62054]]

                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.)
