CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – Olivia Yanson and son Leo Rey re-affirmed their leadership and management of Mindanao Star Bus Transport Inc. (MSBTI), a bus company plying routes in Mindanao. At the Company’s annual stockholders’ meeting on January 15, 2022, Leo Rey V. Yanson, Ginnette Y. Dumancas, Charles M. Dumancas, Rey C. Ardo and Arvin John V. Villaruel were re-elected as members of MSBTI’s board of directors.
Following the election of the directors, the board held an organizational meeting wherein Leo Rey V. Yanson was re-appointed as chairman of the board and president of MSBTI and Olivia V. Yanson as corporate secretary and treasurer. Olivia was appointed last year by a Bacolod court to be the special administrator of the estate of his late husband Ricardo B. Yanson.
Despite the proper and timely notice given, stockholders Roy V. Yanson, Ricardo V. Yanson Jr., and Emily V. Yanson were absent during the meeting.
Roy, Emily and Ricky are believed to be unable to attend the meeting because they are hiding abroad as fugitives from justice, together with their sister Ma. Lourdes Celina Y. Lopez.
As of this writing, the four siblings were facing several outstanding warrants of arrest for Carnapping and Grave Coercion issued by the courts of Bacolod City. Warrants of arrest were also recently issued against Emily for the crimes of perjury and falsification by Bacolod and Cagayan De Oro courts.
Leo Rey V. Yanson, the re-elected chairman and president, said that despite the challenges faced in 2021, MSBTI remains strong and resilient.
“It continues to be steadfast in its goal to serve the Filipino people. MSBTI remains committed to providing the riding public with the most reliable means of public transportation for all,” he said.
The newly re-appointed board is also excited to see how they can continue to push boundaries to provide quality transportation to every Filipino despite the challenges of the pandemic.
