H. Doc. 117-13: Blocking Property with Respect to the Situation in Burma, February 15, 2021   [open pdf - 277KB]

From the Document: "Pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 'et seq.') (IEEPA), I hereby report that I have issued an Executive Order (the 'order') declaring a national emergency with respect to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States posed by the situation in Burma. The order responds to the February 1, 2021, coup in Burma by targeting the military and its leaders, their business interests, and their close family members. The order holds to account those responsible for unjustly arresting and detaining government leaders, politicians, human rights defenders, journalists, and religious leaders; rejecting the will of the people of Burma as expressed in elections held in November 2020; and undermining the country's democratic transition and the rule of law."
