Matriarch Olivia Yanson and her son, Leo Rey, regained control of the Vallacar Transit Inc. headquarters in Barangay Mansilingan, Bacolod City, after a police led operation at dawn yesterday.

They now have full control of the Yanson Group of Bus Companies, that includes 15 branches in the Visayas and Mindanao, their lawyer Norman Golez said.

Three of Olivia’s four children – Emily, Celina and Ricardo Jr., referred to as the Yanson 4, who took over the VTI headquarters on July 7 were holed up inside the administration building even after the police entered the VTI headquarters. Roy, the fourth member of the Yanson 4, was not present because he was reportedly not feeling well. moremoremore
