                Notice of June 12, 2009

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect To The Actions and Policies of Certain Members 
                of the Government of Belarus and Other Persons that 
                Undermine Democratic Processes or Institutions in 
                Belarus

                On June 16, 2006, by Executive Order 13405, the 
                President declared a national emergency and ordered 
                related measures blocking the property of certain 
                persons undermining democratic processes or 
                institutions in Belarus, pursuant to the International 
                Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706). 
                The President took this action to deal with the unusual 
                and extraordinary threat to the national security and 
                foreign policy of the United States constituted by the 
                actions and policies of certain members of the 
                Government of Belarus and other persons that have 
                undermined democratic processes or institutions; 
                committed human rights abuses related to political 
                repression, including detentions and disappearances; 
                and engaged in public corruption, including by 
                diverting or misusing Belarusian public assets or by 
                misusing public authority.

                Despite some positive developments in the past year, 
                including the release of internationally recognized 
                political prisoners, the actions and policies of 
                certain members of the Government of Belarus and other 
                persons continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary 
                threat to the national security and foreign policy of 
                the United States. Accordingly, the national emergency 
                declared on June 16, 2006, and the measures adopted on 
                that date to deal with that emergency, must continue in 
                effect beyond June 16, 2009. 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 declared in Executive Order 13405.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)
