(BVI NEWS) – Newly-inducted member into the governing Virgin Islands Party, Alvera Maduro-Caines is calling for a support system to be developed for young girls who have been captured in pornographic videos performing sexual acts with older men in the British Virgin Islands.

Maduro-Caines made the appeal at the press conference on Monday when she announced her resignation from the National Democratic Party — one of the Opposition parties within the House of Assembly.

She said: “I call upon mothers and single parents to form a group, some kind of help group for the young ladies because the pornography is at a sky-high. I received some videos the other day, and I was really appalled by the boldness of our young ladies to think that this is good.”

“And, they are performing these acts with men, older men and the boldness frightens me. I have been called by a few ladies, to get some form of a group set up — some form of a forum. It is not something the legislation probably can fix but if it is proven that these men are a lot older than these ladies, then legislation can fix it. But, it is rampant, and it has gone sky high, and I have never seen it like this.”

Commenting on the issue, Premier Andrew Fahie said he believes the issue could be rectified with legislation.

“Our legislation with the Cyber Crime, which we are waiting for it to be ascended [by the Governor] can help fix [it]. Because when you help share those videos, you will get fined,and you will go to jail,” he remarked.

The issue of pornographic videos and other materials is nothing new to the Virgin Islands. However, under the proposed amendments to the Computer Misuse and Cyber Crime Amendment Act, persons can face stiff fines and many years behind bars for sharing these types of videos.
