A call for more accountability has been made on ECCO following the resignation of the organization’s director.

Ian Sanchez disclosed via missive that he had stepped down from the position citing two main reasons. Among them was the unsanctioned salary increase for the General manager as well as a conflict of interest with the Chairman of the board of ECCO who also works as the organization’s agent in Dominica.

The latest development comes at the height of discussions which have been raised here again regarding royalty payments for musicians and the lack of support from the media for local content.

Noted performer Rob Zi Tailor has weighed in on the issue, pointing to what he sees as clear discrepancies with the management of funds collected by ecco. He also believes that artistes who have not been paying keen attention to their business are now doing so.

Tailor who is registered as a foreign artiste stressed that while Ecco distributes the lions share of revenue overseas, he has never received any payments for his live performances.

ECCO is expected to hold its annual General meeting at the CSA auditorium on Saturday where several agenda issues will be discussed.
