The Philippine Medical Association (PMA) has suspended celebrity doctor Hayden Kho Jr. for 2 years in connection with his sex video scandal.
PMA Ethics Commission head Dr. Santiago del Rosario said the suspension was originally for 3 years, but since Kho was not the one who distributed the sex videos, and that the women consented to the sexual acts, the suspension was shortened to 2 years.
The PMA will submit its recommendation on Kho to the Professional Regulation Commission.
Kho was among those accused by actress-model Katrina Halili for uploading on the Internet the racy videos of their sexual encounters.
Kho admitted filming the sexual encounter but denied uploading the videos, accusing mutual friends of allegedly making copies from his laptop computer.
Halili had charged Kho with psychological violence under the Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children Act of 2004.
Kho also voluntarily suspended his medical practice after Halili filed a separate complaint against him before the PRC.
Thank you PMA for giving justice to all the victims of Kho. Hope this will serve a lesson to those who also do what Kho did.
