New television series features part of Barbados Government Minister’s online porn empire
by BFP staff with a tip from ‘Miss Delicia Delight’
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.
How much DLP Campaign funding was porn industry profits?
Barbados Free Press found that fees collected by Inniss internet sex businesses like Orgasm.com flowed to many offshore banking centres including Switzerland. This international flow of funds by Donville Inniss associated companies in Barbados and elsewhere raised a potential for money laundering.
“Did Donville Inniss and his associated businesses properly declare all internet porn revenues in the various countries where the revenues should have been declared?
Have any profits from the Inniss-associated porn empire found their way into the DLP’s election campaign funding?”
Those are good questions that, unfortunately, the Caribbean news media has never asked.
Sadly, either through fear of lawsuits, loss of government advertising or other reasons, no Barbados legacy news media has covered the Inniss porn empire story even though Barbados Free Press has posted copies of business records online that prove every word we’ve written about Donville Inniss and the porn industry.
Barbados Free Press has challenged Donville Inniss on several occasions to explain or refute our stories. Like anyone who wishes to comment upon our stories, we would publish a response from Mr. Inniss with full prominence and no editing. So far Minister Inniss hasn’t taken us up on the offer.
We’ve also mentioned that Mr. Inniss has not approached our internet hosting company WordPress to demand that our articles be taken down. Mr. Inniss will not do that because he knows that everything in the articles is backed up by the business records we collected online, and that those records are still there in the internet archives for serious researchers through internet archives.
Will the Naked News documentary television series cover the story that twelve years later, one of their original founders is having to explain his porn industry association to voters in Barbados? Will the Bajan news media continue their cover-up of the history and extent of the Donville Inniss porn empire?
Let’s see if the Bajan legacy news media has any integrity left.
Only one named journalist in Barbados has had the courage and integrity to ask Inniss directly: Ian Bourne of The Bajan Reporter, and Inniss responded with an attack.

MIA: DLP LAST TO SPEAK ON VALUES
THE DEMOCRATIC LABOUR PARTY (DLP) has no moral authority to talk to the Barbadian people about values and integrity.
Deputy Prime Minister Mia Mottley stressed this during her address to a large crowd gathered at the Bay Street Esplanade for the official launch of the Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) 2008 campaign on Wednesday night.
She said DLP leader David Thompson’s endorsement of St James South candidate Donville Inniss was testimony to the fact that the DLP did not really care about values and was power hungry.
Stating that people in Barbados seemed to have short memories, Mottley said she wished to remind them of an important event back in 2001 when Inniss, as a businessman, was identified in the operation of an Internet website that featured nude broadcasters.
Holding up an enlarged copy of a 2001 SUNDAY SUN newspaper article, Mottley said the story dealt with a Barbados-based offshore company, managed by Inniss, that operated Nakednews.com.
She said the site had an average of six million visitors per month, and was among the world’s fastest growing Internet sites, but the operations of the Canadian company EGalaxy Incorporated, managed locally by Inniss through his own company Global Overseas Limited, had come under scrutiny.
“When questioned about the site, Donville Inniss would only say: ‘I am not privy to disclose any details about EGalaxy Inc.’
“He didn’t say he didn’t know. He didn’t say what it was about, he just said that he was not privy to disclose details,” Mottley told the crowd.
She said Inniss was the sole director of the company which was formed in June 2000.
On May 4, 2001, Mottley said Inniss disclosed he was resigning right away but in fact he did not resign until March 1, 2002, ten months later.
Against this background, Mottley said 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,” said Mottley.
