New television series features part of Barbados Government Minister’s online porn empire

The porn industry connections of Barbados Health Minister Donville Inniss are about to be thrust into a worldwide spotlight with the upcoming television broadcast of a new eight-part documentary series The Naked Truth: The Naked News Uncovered.
The documentary looks at Toronto-based Naked News, an internet news channel that bills itself as “the news program with nothing to hide”. The news channel has a simple formula for programming: Beautiful women take their clothes off as they read the day’s news stories.
The AllScreen Entertainment documentary films production is already sold and scheduled for Canadian television broadcast in 2013. Award-winning producers Allan Novak and Barri Cohen say “With a crazy cast of sexy women, an overbearing (and ex-nude anchor) boss and an oddball crew of directors, writers, editors and designers, The Naked Truth: The Naked News Uncovered is sure to be an entertaining half-hour full of humour, drama and (naked-but blurred out) truths.”
BFP’s source, ‘Miss Delicia Delight’ says…
“Those dramatic naked truths could include how Naked News and the porn industry connections of a Government Minister became an issue during three Barbados general elections – including the one about to be called by Prime Minister Freundel Stuart.”
By a strange coincidence the documentary will be in production during the coming Barbados election. Already there are rumours in Bim’s film community that the Naked News girls will be ‘vacationing’ in Barbados when Minister of Health Inniss is in campaign mode.
The naked un-blurred truth about Donville Inniss, Naked News and Barbados Politics
During the run-up to the 2008 election campaign, BLP Member of Parliament Mia Mottley raised Naked News as an issue as DLP candidate Donville Inniss ‘had been’ the founder and sole director of EGalaxy Incorporated in June 2000, the company behind with the Toronto-based Naked News production. DLP Democratic Labour Party supporters minimized the damage and sought to deflect the Barbadian news media in a number of ways that combined humour and a “nothing to see here, folks” message with not so subtle threats under the nation’s strict defamation laws.
“On May 4, 2001, Mottley said Inniss disclosed he was resigning right away (from EGalaxy Incorporated & Naked News) but in fact he did not resign until March 1, 2002, ten months later. Against this background, Mottley said (DLP leader) Thompson had endorsed Inniss as a DLP candidate and was talking about morality and integrity and calling for integrity in public office.
“I say to you that as leader of the DLP, his mere endorsement of a candidate whose involvement was stated in THE NATION newspaper, prior to his becoming a candidate, tells you that it is all talk and all about winning power in this country,”

The issue died during the final days of the 2008 campaign because most folks thought Naked News was more humorous than pornographic, and voters believed that Donville Inniss had left Naked News behind in 2002.
The Dark Side of the Porn Industry: Human trafficking, money laundering, sex with animals
As it turned out, Donville Inniss was involved in much more than Naked News. A series of articles published by Barbados Free Press showed that as late as 2011 through his companies and under his own personal name, Donville Inniss was still part of an international online porn empire that was far different from his original Naked News.
Barbados Free Press documented in 2011 how Donville Inniss and his associated businesses were still involved in the creation and internet broadcasting of video porn and live porn performances under a host of different categories including teenaged girls, pregnant women, group sex and people having sex with animals.
