International Drug & Explosives Detection Firm IDenta Corp. Releases Details About United Nations Marketing Efforts

JERUSALEM--(Marketwire - August 6, 2009) - IDenta Corp (PINKSHEETS: IDTA) CEO Yaacov Shoham today released a statement about the marketing efforts of IDenta to the United Nations.

Stated Shoham, "The United Nations has a special office called UNODC -- United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime ( The main office is located in Vienna, Austria. And for a very long time we have tried to make connections with the UNODC office but with no positive result until recently.

"Only in the last year has IDenta been able to make contacts with the UNODC through two main sources:

"1. IDenta's local (Austria) representative company (very well connected) has been able to make the necessary contacts with UNODC officials and to present IDenta's different drug detectors. The presentation has shown the superiority of the IDenta kits for detecting illicit drugs, and was very welcomed by the UNODC personnel.

"The UNODC is budgeting many, many world projects in the prevention and fight of the illicit drug plague, including funding purchasing drug detectors especially in the undeveloped countries (Africa, Asia, South America).

"Two weeks ago one of the managers from the Austrian company was in Israel meeting with IDenta executives, giving a full report of what has been done so far and to work out together the marketing and sales strategy for this most important world organization.

"2. As we have previously released (July 6, 2009) IDenta's precursor kits are being used in a large field test in Afghanistan. The field test for the precursors is being performed under the umbrella of the UNODC with the help of the French agency: MNCPC-The French National Task Force for the Control of the Precursor Chemicals of Narcotic Drugs (Mission de Contrôle Des Précurseurs Chimiques de Drogues).

"The French agency is the most active agency in the world concerning the precursor drug problem and is working very closely with the United Nations agency, already looking to introduce the IDenta's precursor kits in Middle Asia countries where the UNODC is very active.

"The UNODC agency is a prime target for IDenta and we do believe that we finally have the right connections to have IDenta's products used by the UN agency.

"The business possibilities with the UNODC are huge and we do believe that we will succeed."


Since 2003, IDenta Corporation has been recognized as a worldwide leader in the development of proprietary on-site drug, drug precursor and explosive detection kits. IDenta develops, manufactures and distributes products for both the professional and civil markets which consistently pass the highest qualifications and testing procedures of law enforcement and security agencies around the world.

UNODC is a global leader in the fight against illicit drugs and international crime. Established in 1997 through a merger between the United Nations Drug Control Programme and the Centre for International Crime Prevention, UNODC operates in all regions of the world through an extensive network of field offices. UNODC relies on voluntary contributions, mainly from Governments, for 90 per cent of its budget.

UNODC is mandated to assist Member States in their struggle against illicit drugs, crime and terrorism. In the Millennium Declaration, Member States also resolved to intensify efforts to fight transnational crime in all its dimensions, to redouble the efforts to implement the commitment to counter the world drug problem and to take concerted action against international terrorism.

The three pillars of the UNODC work programme are:

--  Field-based technical cooperation projects to enhance the capacity of
    Member States to counteract illicit drugs, crime and terrorism
--  Research and analytical work to increase knowledge and understanding
    of drugs and crime issues and expand the evidence base for policy and
    operational decisions
--  Normative work to assist States in the ratification and implementation
    of the relevant international treaties, the development of domestic
    legislation on drugs, crime and terrorism, and the provision of secretariat
    and substantive services to the treaty-based and governing bodies
