To the Congress of the United States:
Pursuant to section 204(b) of the International Emergency Eco-
nomic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. section 1703(b), and section 301 of the
National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. section 1631, I hereby report
that I have again exercised my statutory authority to issue an Ex-
ecutive order with respect to Haiti that, effective 11:59 p.m., e.d.t.,
Monday, October 18, 1993, that:
(a) Blocks all property in the United States or within the
possession or control of United States persons, including their
overseas branches, of persons:
(1) who have contributed to the obstruction of the imple-
mentation of United Nations Security Council Resolutions
841 and 873, the Governors Island Agreement of July 3,
1993, or the activities of the United Nations Mission in
Haiti;
(2) who have perpetuated or contributed to the violence
in Haiti; or
(3) who have materially or financially supported any of
the foregoing; and
(b) Prohibits any transaction subject to U.S. jurisdiction that
evades or avoids, or has the purpose of evading or avoiding, or
attempts to violate, the prohibitions in the new order, or in Ex-
ecutive Orders Nos. 12775, 12779, or 12853, except to the ex-
tent now authorized pursuant to the relevant Executive order.
I am enclosing a copy of the Executive order that I have issued.

are supporting the groups fomenting violence and opposing the res-
toration of constitutional government in Haiti. The new Executive
order is to be implemented by the Secretary of the Treasury, in
consultation with the Secretary of State.
