Universal Detection Technology Comments on the Threat of Terrorism at the 2008 Olympic Games in China

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2007) - Universal Detection Technology (www.udetection.com) (OTCBB: UDTT), a developer and marketer of early warning monitoring counter-terrorism technologies and provider of counter-terrorism training and consulting services commented on the threat of terrorism at the 2008 Olympics games in China.

In an article published in the Homeland Security Daily Wire, the Chinese Minister of Public Security, Mr. Zhou Yongkang was quoted to say that "terrorism poses the biggest threat to the holding of a successful Beijing Olympic Games." Minister Yongkang asked on Monday for closer international collaboration on information sharing and risk analysis. "Although the general security situation for the Beijing Olympics remains stable, we still face the challenges of terrorism, separatism, and extremism," he added. He spoke at the International Conference on Security Cooperation for the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, which is attended by more than 140 representatives from 32 countries and regions, and international organizations such as Interpol and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

Liu Jing, vice minister of public security, told the meeting that some regional and ethnic conflicts in the world might cast a shadow over the Games, and some international terrorist or extremist groups might make use of the event to launch attacks for their own purposes. "The Olympic Games are a happy gathering for people from all countries, but it's also a big target for terrorism," he said. "Emergencies such as stampedes and disturbances by football fans are also possible," he added.

"The Olympic Games are one of the highest profile international events, where it is of great importance to ensure the safety and security of the crowds. It is important for governments to deploy the best and most sophisticated expertise and technologies to plan and prepare for potential acts of terrorism with conventional weapons or weapons of mass destruction," said Mr. Jacques Tizabi, UDTT's Chief Executive Officer. "We believe that our bioterrorism detection and radiation detection systems can serve as valuable tools in the hands of first responders in any emergency scenario. UDTT's detection technologies in the hands of the security personnel at high profile events such as the Olympics, can make great contributions to saving lives or preventing massive attacks with biological or radiological weapons," he added.
