GardaWorld Continues to Pursue All Avenues to Achieve the Safe Return of its Four Security Professionals

MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2007) - Stephan Cretier, President and CEO of Garda World Security Corporation (TSX:GW), one of the most trusted consulting, investigation and security firms in the world, made the following statement at a news conference after its annual meeting in Montreal.

"GardaWorld's operations have been active in Iraq for four years in support of the reconstruction effort, working alongside the Iraqi and international communities to deliver stability and improvement to the lives of the Iraqi people. We pride ourselves on our exceptional safety record in the region and the low-profile approach we deploy in carrying out our responsibilities as we deliver the highest quality services to our clients.

The nature of the May 29 event is a very worrying development for all involved. Our primary concern is for the safety and well being of our four man team as well as to work tirelessly toward their safe return. We continue to support their families and are deploying everything in our power, while working closely with the British government and various parties in Iraq, to achieve a positive resolution."
