By BBN Staff: The Belizean Society of Composers and Publishers (BSCAP) has issued a release accepting former CEO Shyne Barrow’s resignation adding that it is “disappointed and saddened by the way Mr. Barrow is choosing to handle this matter.”
“Specifically as it relates to the financial accusations – the BSCAP Board wants the record to be very clear that these allegations are 100 percent false and will gladly release audited financials to substantiate this position,” BSCAP said.
Barrow tendered his resignation from the organization this week after revealing that BSCAP Chairwoman, Heather Cunningham is claiming $600,000 to cover her salary and expenses for the period from 2010-2013. Barrow resigned saying he could not support paying the exorbitant sum to Cunningham while BSCAP proposed to distribute only $2,500 to members.
BSCAP, however, referred to Barrow’s comments as “wildly inflammatory, misleading and inappropriate”. BSCAP’s Board took the position that as an international organization it would best deal with Barrow’s allegations outside of the media to preserve the integrity of the organization, its members and the copyright movement.
BSCAP said it is hopeful that Shyne will reconsider the negative impact his words are having on all that has been accomplished to date before wishing him the best in his future endeavors.
