Rommel “Mafioso” Ynion likes to tell sob stories about his younger years such as how they had to go to Manila to scrounge for a living supposedly after their father, Capt. Eugenio J. Ynion Sr., left them (he did not elaborate on the reasons). He worked odd jobs kay “gingutuman”, became a newspaper man writing obituaries and such and then got noticed by the bigwigs in business for whom he wrote “investigative reports” that soon landed him the editorship of the Shipping Section of the Philippine Star. As Rommel “Mafioso” Ynion says it, the fates smiled kindly on him and now he is a multi-millionaire who can afford to give free bread, housing, hospitalization, buy the Iloilo media and hire thugs to beat up anyone who publicly dare speak against him.
Adobo’s research led to some disgruntled sectors of the country’s shipping associations and the United Filipino Seafarers Association who said the father of Rommel “Mafioso” Ynion, Capt. Eugenio J. Ynion, used his connections at the Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC) to snake his way through lucrative contracts and other illegal business such as oil smuggling in the Baltic Sea and “paihi” of oil from other vessels. His sophisticated style of doing business led him to wine and dine with other criminals groups in several shipping associations. This explains why sons Eugenio Jr. got into Le Soleil Shipping Agencies and Rommel into technical smuggling. They have their father who knows the ropes.
In Adobo’s next post: the sterling career of Capt. Eugenio J. “The Godfather” Ynion Sr. that led to his great wealth.
Meantime, Adobo Ilonggo’s number one fan, Adobo Ilonggo Gwapo, is badgering that we post his piece on Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog, arguing that the poor executive of Iloilo City must be defended against scurrilous attacks by paid media hacks.
Who is Jed Patrick Mabilog? (Part 2)
Accusations against a person must be checked against his professional background so that one can get an idea if there is any basis for the said accusations. One can sense a strong conspiracy against Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog as there is nothing in the internet that may cast aspersions on his persona except for sporadic ones from media mercenaries posing as journalists.
So, why don’t we know much about the professional background of Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog? The answer is because Rommel “Mafioso” Ynion has already bought all major print outlets of Iloilo City (Panay News, The News Today, and The Guardian) and therefore sing paeans to him and vilify a duly elected mayor – a destabilization plot that is criminal and malicious in intent and a dangerous barrier to the progress of the city. Anyway, here’s more about Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog:
- Centennial Awardee, West Visayas State University, Outstanding Alumni in the field of Public Governance for 2008
- Awardee, University of the Philippines, Outstanding Professional in the field of Public Administration for 2007
- Awardee, Ten Outstanding Councilors of the Philippines (TOCP) 2004-2007
Are we to say that Western Visayas’ top learning institutions and the TOCP are not doing their research and would give an award to a questionable character?
