                Notice of June 8, 2010

                
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 to undermine 
                Belarus democratic processes or institutions, to commit 
                human rights abuses related to political repression, 
                including detentions and disappearances, and to engage 
                in public corruption, including by diverting or 
                misusing Belarusian public assets or by misusing public 
                authority.

                Despite the release of internationally recognized 
                political prisoners in the fall of 2008 and our 
                continuing efforts to press for further reforms related 
                to democracy, human rights, and the rule of law in 
                Belarus, serious challenges remain. 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, 
                2010. 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.
