In 2006-2007 a Belgian colleague, Marleen Teugels, and I followed up on a hint by two Danish colleagues. They had worked on a series about trafficked women in Denmark and stumbled over a high-level Belgian business personality closely connected to a Danish porn cinema. The story was followed up in Belgian news magazine Knack and Danish daily Information

Den belgiske toperhvervsmand Guy Paquot har siden 1985 været bestyrelsesmedlem for porno-biografen Non-Stop-Bio Cinerotic i Istedgade. Men da sagen kom frem i medierne i Danmark i efteråret, trak han sig ud i en fart. Paquot, der i juli 2000 blev slået til ridder for sine fortjenster i Belgien, afviser at have vidst det mindste om porno-biksen eller om de afrikanske prostituerede, der betjener deres kunder i video-kabinerne, skriver belgisk magasin.
