Although Liberia has made significant advances to promote democracy, and the Special Court for Sierra Leone convicted Charles Taylor for war crimes and crimes against humanity, the actions and policies of Charles Taylor and others have left a legacy of destruction that still challenge Liberia’s transformation and recovery.

                Notice of July 17, 2015

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to the Former Liberian Regime of Charles Taylor

                On July 22, 2004, by Executive Order 13348, the 
                President declared a national emergency with respect to 
                the former Liberian regime of Charles Taylor 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 former Liberian President Charles Taylor and other 
                persons, in particular their unlawful depletion of 
                Liberian resources and their removal from Liberia and 
                secreting of Liberian funds and property, which have 
                undermined Liberia's transition to democracy and the 
                orderly development of its political, administrative, 
                and economic institutions and resources.

                Although Liberia has made significant advances to 
                promote democracy, and the Special Court for Sierra 
                Leone convicted Charles Taylor for war crimes and 
                crimes against humanity, the actions and policies of 
                Charles Taylor and others have left a legacy of 
                destruction that still challenge Liberia's 
                transformation and recovery. 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 July 22, 2004, and the measures adopted on 
                that date to deal with that emergency, must continue in 
                effect beyond July 22, 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 with respect to the former Liberian 
                regime of Charles Taylor declared in Executive Order 
                13348.

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

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    July 17, 2015.
