"Altrus Limited, a distributor of some the world's leading military and law enforcement products, plans to present the Cobra StunLight(TM) to the Singapore Ministry of Defense to satisfy 2006 non-lethal weapons requirements," stated Peter Goode, Regional Director, Secure Risks Asia Pacific. "We will also be coordinating Cobra StunLight(TM) demonstrations to other interested agencies such as the Hong Kong Police, Independent Commission Against Corruption as well Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department," continued Mr. Goode, a former Chief Inspector with the Royal Hong Kong Police.
"With increasing demands in the region for more humanitarian use-of-force options, we believe that the Cobra StunLight(TM) offers our military, law enforcement and security customers a safe and effective alternative to other products currently on the market and is an extremely cost-effective replacement to standard police flashlights, mace or pepper sprays, and batons," stated Mr. Kuan, Managing Director of Altrus Pte. Ltd.
"With increasing civil disturbances around the world and in the region, leaders from several nations are turning to more humanitarian, non-lethal use-of-force alternatives such as our Cobra StunLight(TM)," stated Michael Skellern, the Company's Chief Executive Officer. "There are very few non-lethal products manufacturers to supply the growing demand for offensive and defensive use-of-force alternatives. Altrus and its network partners will team with Shield Defense to deliver the Cobra StunLight(TM) and our soon to be released Riot Defender(TM) product lines to fill the void in this rapidly expanding market", Mr. Skellern, continued.
