                Notice of March 3, 2015

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Zimbabwe

                On March 6, 2003, by Executive Order 13288, the 
                President declared a national emergency and blocked the 
                property of certain persons, pursuant to the 
                International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 
                1701-1706), to deal with the unusual and extraordinary 
                threat to the foreign policy of the United States 
                constituted by the actions and policies of certain 
                members of the Government of Zimbabwe and other persons 
                to undermine Zimbabwe's democratic processes or 
                institutions. These actions and policies had 
                contributed to the deliberate breakdown in the rule of 
                law in Zimbabwe, to politically motivated violence and 
                intimidation in that country, and to political and 
                economic instability in the southern African region.

                On November 22, 2005, the President issued Executive 
                Order 13391 to take additional steps with respect to 
                the national emergency declared in Executive Order 
                13288 by ordering the blocking of the property of 
                certain persons who undermine democratic processes or 
                institutions in Zimbabwe.

                On July 25, 2008, the President issued Executive Order 
                13469, which expanded the scope of the national 
                emergency declared in Executive Order 13288 and 
                authorized the blocking of the property of certain 
                persons determined to have engaged in actions or 
                policies to undermine democratic processes or 
                institutions in Zimbabwe, to commit acts of violence 
                and other human rights abuses against political 
                opponents, and to engage in public corruption.

                The actions and policies of these persons continue to 
                pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the foreign 
                policy of the United States. For this reason, the 
                national emergency declared on March 6, 2003, and the 
                measures adopted on that date, on November 22, 2005, 
                and on July 25, 2008, to deal with that emergency, must 
                continue in effect beyond March 6, 2015. 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 13288.
