Minister of Health Inniss comments on Barbados Free Press?
Video added should be required viewing for Minister Inniss & his fellow MPs
As our readers can see, a person claiming to be Minister of Health Donville Inniss commented upon this article. BFP’s editors changed the name on the comment from “Donville Inniss” to “Is this Donville Inniss?” until we are sure of the author.
BFP has asked for confirmation via an email sent from the Minister’s official office. Although we have yet to receive a confirming email, there are other indications that the comment might indeed be from Minister Inniss.
If and when we receive confirmation, we’ll let our readers know. Until then, please take the comment with a grain of salt.

Mr. Inniss: you are dead wrong.
This Australian anti-drunk driving video should be required watching for Minister Inniss and his fellow government members…
