After the Bacolod City Regional Trial Court-Branch 53 denied the request for a temporary restraining order by Vallacar Transit Incorporated (VTI) President Roy Yanson against his brother, former VTI President Leo Rey Yanson, the incumbent company chief said the ruling made the case for an injunction, where a court order can still block a specific party from conducting certain acts.
In a press release, he explained, the case allowed their side to present evidence, such as video depicting an attempt at a “fake strike” against the company, which “[proved] their entitlement to an injunction.”
Yanson went on to note, the denial does not mean his younger brother is free to “do what he wants.”
“The order simply expressed the court’s preference to hear more about why we, the majority members of the Board, want to ensure that Leo Rey and his supporters are restrained from committing acts that do nothing but harm our company,” he explained.
The court is set to hear the petition for injunction tomorrow, July 26./DGB, WDJ
