Attention Finance Minister Sinckler: About those Donville Inniss US Corporations, Real Estate and Assets

How did Donville Inniss get cash to Florida to purchase this condo?

Finance Minister Sinckler assures: Barbados plays by the rules! (But does Minister Inniss?)

by Marcus & Shona

Barbados has this little problem right now. French, American and Canadian politicians are calling our country a “tax haven” and other names – which is actually their way of accusing Barbados of offering secret offshore banking to foreigners who don’t want to obey the tax laws of their own countries.

France and some others say we don’t obey the rules of international finance. (Joke on the side: How many French soldiers does it take to defend Paris? Answer: Nobody knows. The French have never tried to defend Paris.)

Our government is responding to the charges with an aggressive public relations campaign and a host of reciprocal information sharing agreements with other countries. We’ve also pledged to update financial legislation and to more effectively monitor international financial transactions.

Fair enough. The sea is changing so Barbados is setting out some different sails and adjusting the windage and the helm. Good. We’ll check the passenger manifest too, to ensure that everybody on board is someone we don’t mind sailing with. That’s only common sense when our survival depends upon the friendship of other countries. (“Friend of all, satellite of none.”)

This is serious business for Barbados, because as Minister Sinckler said the other day at a meeting at Cin Cin Restaurant (Look at the food! THE FOOD! YUM!!!)

“…the international business and financial services sector contributes upwards of 60 per cent of all corporate revenues in the country and, therefore, that is an important station for us and one that we seek to protect and, of course, guard very zealously.”

What about the international finances of Health Minister Donville Inniss?

Barbados Free Press is publishing a series of stories showing that Minister of Health Donville Inniss profited from the online porn industry. Our stories tell the truth even if the Barbados news media covers up and looks the other way. Minister Inniss knows that our stories are true so he hasn’t taken any steps to have the stories removed from WordPress where Barbados Free Press makes its home.

But now we get to the issue of money. How was Minister Inniss paid for his involvement with online porn companies? Was he a stakeholder in any company or was he providing a paid service to front the porn industry? Were any of his family members or friends acting as proxies?

We think we see some interesting discoveries on the internet…. Continue reading

Irene Sandiford-Garner: Queen of the double standard

“One of the Senator’s own DLP Government Ministers has probably been more responsible for the denigration and debasing of women than any other Bajan politician, but Sandiford-Garner won’t mention this inconvenient truth.”

DLP Senator Irene Sandiford-Garner

Senator Irene Sandiford-Garner says “dismissive” and “openly disrespectful behavior” towards women politicians in the Caribbean is deterring women from entering politics. She is probably correct.

In the current issue of Caribbean360.com, the DLP Senator comes to the defense of former Opposition leader Mia Mottley, T&T PM Persad-Bissessar and Jamaica’s Portia Simpson  – saying that these women politicians have been treated far more disrespectfully than men would be, even in the rough and tumble world of politics.

The issue of disrespect for Caribbean women is not confined to politics. Senator Sandiford-Garner’s complaint about women politicians not being shown respect is only a part of the larger picture. All women in the Caribbean are the recipients of this “dismissive” and “openly disrespectful behavior” whether in politics or not. It is a part of the Bajan and pan-Caribbean culture that needs changing.

Double Standard

The Senator zeros in on the anti-women attitude of the Barbados Labour Party leaders and their attacks on Mia Mottley, but this shows the Senator’s double standard.

One of the Senator’s own DLP Government Ministers has probably been more responsible for the denigration and debasing of women than any other Bajan politician, but Sandiford-Garner won’t mention this inconvenient truth.

I am talking about Minister of Health Donville Inniss, whose name has been synonymous with online pornography companies and websites for almost ten years.

It is ironic that one of Donville’s female DLP colleagues should be talking about disrespect for women and the abuse of Mia Mottley in particular. Mia Mottley was the first politician, male or female, to call public attention to Donville Inniss’ involvement in the internet pornography industry.

Mia Mottley called out Inniss for engaging in a business that regularly denigrates women, and as we’ve seen in a series of posts at BFP, Inniss doesn’t care if the women are teenagers, pregnant, black or located in the Caribbean. All women are welcome to perform public sex acts at websites associated with Mr. Inniss. No one can complain that Donville Inniss is prejudiced: he is truly an equal-opportunity denigrator of all women no matter their race, creed, religion or nationality.

If the female Democratic Labour Party Senator is complaining about the BLP’s lack of respect for women, she would be better to sweep off her own porch before she tells her neighbour to clean house.
