Source: Story by Frances Morton. June 5, nzherald.co.nz
One week after pleading guilty to directing a company while banned, porn magnate Steve Crow has announced a new business venture. [Crow is listed as a “disqualified director” on the Companies Office website www.companies.govt.nz – banned for four years under s. 385 of the Companies Act 1993 from promoting, directing or managing any company].
Crow launched an online escort directory, [pornographic website link deleted] on Friday.
[The domain name of the website registered on 21 March 2011, is owned by Truth Publications Ltd, a company struck off the Registrar of Companies on 25 February 2011. The Registrant contact for the website is listed as former Truth Publications CEO Demott Malley Tel. firstname.lastname@example.org. See www.dnc.org.nz.]
He [Crow] plans to promote it [the website owned by a defunct company – Truth Publication Ltd] with a second Boobs on Bikes down Queen St on September 24 – the day the All Blacks take on France in the Rugby World Cup at Eden Park.
Crow said escorts listed on the website would be bodypainted with rugby jerseys in New Zealand and French sporting colours.
The next Boobs on Bikes is scheduled for August 4.
Crow said he may not seek a permit from Auckland Council for the second parade.
He maintained his involvement as a “marketing consultant” in the new venture did not contravene his director ban. “I’m not running it. David Crow my brother is. He’s the CEO.”
