As reported in our April 2, 2007 article Nation News Runs Advertisement Claiming To Cure AIDS, the Nation News continues to run an advertisement for a product that claims to cure HIV/AIDS. On April 3, 2007 this was brought to the attention of Minister of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, Lynette Eastmond – who has a standing post at Barbados Free Press where she communicates with citizens. (See Government Minister Lynette Eastmond Volunteers To Answer Question By Barbados Free Press Readers)
On April 10, 2007, Minister Eastmond acknowledged the concerns about the advertising of a cure for AIDS and she stated that she would be passing on the information to the “FTC”. You can read Minister Eastmond’s April 10th statement here.
One Month Later – AIDS Cure Advert Still Runs At The Nation News
Here we are over one month later and the Nation News continues to run the advertisement (we copied the above yesterday – May 13, 2007) so we can only assume that in this lawless banana republic we call Barbados, even a Minister of Government can’t stop fraudsters from cruelly targeting AIDS victims.
The Nation News should be ashamed of themselves.
