THE WHITE HOUSE,
Washington, October 14, 1994.
Hon. THOMAS S. FOLEY,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
DEAR MR. SPEAKER: On October 4, 1991, pursuant to the Inter-
national Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.)
and the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.), Presi-
dent Bush exercised his statutory authority to issue Executive
Order No. 12775, declaring a national emergency and blocking Hai-
tian government property. To further tighten the sanctions against
Haiti, President Bush exercised his statutory authority to issue Ex-
ecutive Order No. 12779, and I acted pursuant the same authori-
ties as well as the United Nations Participation Act of 1945, as
amended (22 U.S.C. 287c), to issue Executive Order Nos. 12853,
12872, 12914, 12917, 12920, and 12922.
In view of the restoration of a democratically elected government
in Haiti, and taking into consideration United Nations Security
Council Resolution 944 of September 29, 1994, I have determined
that the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security,
foreign policy, and economy of the United States previously posed
by the policies and actions of the de facto regime in Haiti has ter-
minated. Today, pursuant to the above authorities, I have exercised
my statutory authority to issue an Executive order to terminate the
national emergency declared in Executive Order No. 12775 and re-
voke the Executive orders referenced above imposing additional
sanctions with respect to Haiti.
I have determined to issue the new Executive order terminating
all remaining sanctions against Haiti in view of the return of Hai-
ti's legitimately elected President, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, and the
adoption of United Nations Security Council Resolution 944, which
rescinds mandatory sanctions against Haiti previously adopted by
the Security Council with our support.
Sincerely,
WILLIAM J. CLINTON.













EXECUTIVE ORDER


TERMINATION OF EMERGENCY WITH RESPECT TO HAITI
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution
and laws of the United States of America, including the Inter-
national Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.),
the National Emergencies Act ("NEA") (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.), sec-
tion 5 of the United Nations Participation Act of 1945, as amended
(22 U.S.C. 287c), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, and
taking into consideration United Nations Security Council Resolu-
tion 944 of September 29, 1994,
I, WILLIAM J. CLINTON, President of the United States of
America, find that the restoration of a democratically elected gov-
ernment in Haiti has ended the unusual and extraordinary threat
to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United
States previously posed by the policies and actions of the de facto
regime in Haiti and the need to continue the national emergency
declared in Executive Order No. 12775 of October 4, 1991, to deal
with that threat.
I hereby revoke Executive Order Nos. 12775, 12779, 12853,
12872, 12914, 12917, 12920, and 12922 and terminate the national
emergency declared in Executive Order No. 12775 with respect to.
Haiti.
Pursuant to section 202 of the NEA (50 U.S.C. 1622), termi-
nation of the national emergency with respect to Haiti shall not af-
fect any action taken or proceeding pending not finally concluded
or determined as of the effective date of this order, or any action
or proceeding based on any act committed prior to the effective
date of this order, or any rights or duties that matured or penalties
that were incurred prior to the effective date of this order.
This order shall take effect at 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time
on October 16, 1994.
WILLIAM J. CLINTON.
THE WHITE HOUSE, October 14, 1994.
