                                           The White House,
                                      Washington, January 15, 2002.

Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: Section 202(d) of the National 
Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)) provides for the automatic 
termination of a national emergency unless, prior to the 
anniversary date of its declaration, the President publishes in 
the Federal Register and transmits to the Congress a notice 
stating that the emergency is to continue in effect beyond the 
anniversary date. In accordance with this provision, I have 
sent the enclosed notice, stating that the Sierra Leone and 
Liberia emergency is to continue in effect beyond January 18, 
2002, to the Federal Register for publication. This is the 
first renewal of the Sierra Leone and Liberia emergency.
    The national emergency declared with respect to Sierra 
Leone on January 18, 2001, as expanded on May 22, 2001, with 
respect to Liberia, has not been resolved. The national 
emergency, as expanded, was declared to deal with the threat 
posed to United States foreign policy by (1) the insurgent 
Revolutionary United Front's (RUF) illicit trade in diamonds to 
fund its operations and procurement of weapons in the brutal, 
decade-long civil war in Sierra Leone; (2) the RUF's flagrant 
violation of the Lome Peace Agreement of July 7, 1999; (3) the 
RUF's attacks on personnel of the United Nations Mission in 
Sierra Leone; and (4) the actions of the Government of Liberia 
in support of the RUF. These actions and policies are hostile 
to U.S. interests and pose a continuing, unusual, and 
extraordinary threat to the foreign policy of the United 
States. For these reasons, I have determined that it is 
necessary to continue the national emergency declared with 
respect to Sierra Leone and Liberia and to maintain in force 
the sanctions imposed in response to the threat posed by the 
actions and policies of the RUF.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Sierra Leone and 
                                Liberia

    On January 18, 2001, by Executive Order 13194, the 
President declared a national emergency with respect to Sierra 
Leone 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 the insurgent 
Revolutionary United Front (RUF) in Sierra Leone and pursuant 
to which the United States imposed a general ban on the direct 
and indirect importation of all rough diamonds from Sierra 
Leone to the United States, except those imports controlled 
through the Certificate of Origin regime of the Government of 
Sierra Leone. On May 22, 2001, I issued Executive Order 13213, 
which expanded the scope of the national emergency to include 
actions of the Government of Liberia in support of the RUF and 
prohibited the importation of all rough diamonds from Liberia.
    Because the actions and policies of the RUF continue to 
pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the foreign policy 
of the United States, the national emergency declared on 
January 18, 2001, as expanded on May 22, 2001, and the measures 
adopted on those dates to deal with that emergency must 
continue in effect beyond January 18, 2002. 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 Sierra Leone and Liberia.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, January 15, 2002.

                                <all>
