    UK PRIME MINISTER WANTS SEMTEX INCLUDED IN OEM TONER MANUFACTRING
    Cameron requests Semtex be included in toner cartridges
    Prime
    Minister David Cameron has provoked outrage amongst some of the most
    powerful printer manufacturers worldwide by insisting Semtex is included
    in all future production of toner cartridges.The request was made in
    direct response to the recent attempted terrorist attacks on a number of
    Trans-Atlantic cargo flights, and more specifically to the threat posed
    by Pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN), the difficult to detect plastic
    explosive contained within the improvised devices.In an emergency
    meeting, chaired by the Prime Minister, he insisted a small amount of
    Semtex be placed in each unit produced in order to ensure any similar
    explosive devices would be intercepted by existing air port detection
    systems.

    Manufacturers are said to have reacted furiously to the
    request and pointedly refused to comply, fearing the broader
    implications of such a move.’There is absolutely no way we would
    consider such a preposterous proposition. This would put more dangerous
    explosives into the hands of terrorists and we would effectively become
    arms dealers,’ said Peter Part, Chief Executive of Nerox.

    A
    spokesperson for the Prime Minister said he felt the move was
    ‘necessary’, as printer manufacturers ‘needed to play a more active role
    in addressing the threat of terrorism’ but stated he was happy to put
    talks ‘on hold until further research was conducted.’PETN is one of the
    components of Semtex. It is colourless, odourless and is virtually
    undetectable when wrapped tightly by foreign hands.
