Philippine Entertainment Portal or PEP received a copy of the decision of the Board of Governors of Philippine Medical Association (PMA) regarding Hayden Kho's sex video scandal.

Here's the excerpt of the decision of Philippine Medical Association signed by Dr. Ireneo C. Bernardo.

In a meeting of the Board of Governors last May 22, 2009 at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel, the Board of Governors referred to the Commission on Ethics to investigate the Kho-Halili matter that has been well publicized in the media.

"The Commission conducted the investigation and on September 14, 2009, the Commission on Ethics gave its recommendation to the Board of Governors. The Commission found Dr. Hayden Kho, Jr., a member in good standing of the Philippine Medical Association, liable for immorality and dishonorable conduct and recommended the penalty of two years of suspension of membership, but to his cooperation in the investigation and his willingness to make amends by helping less-fortunate brothers and sisters, the penalty is reduced to one year of suspension of membership with the Philippine Medical Association.

"The Board of Governors discussed the recommendation in its meeting on September 15, 2009. After taking note of the position papers and affidavits filed in connection with the case, the Board of Governors, by a vote of 13 to 3 with one abstention, resolved to adopt the recommendation of the Commission on Ethics with modification. The Board of Governors finds Dra. Hayden Kho, Jr. liable for dishonorable conduct for his admitted use of a prohibited drug and taking a video of his sexual acts with Ms. Katrina Halili without the latter's consent on one occasion. Instead of the two years reduced to one year, the Board of Governors resolved that the penalty of  Dr. Kho should be three years. However, due to the cooperation by Dr. Kho with the investigation conducted by the Commission on Ethics, the admission made by Dr. Kho and his expression of remorse, the penalty is reduced to two years of suspension of membership in the Philippine Medical Association.

"A motion for reconsideration may be filed with the Board of Governors of the Philippine Medical Association within fifteen days of receipt of the decision. Without a motion for reconsideration, this decision becomes final and executory after the lapse of the 15-day period."
