Hayden Kho can now resume practicing medicine as his license which was revoked five years ago was reinstated by the Professional Regulation Commission’s (PRC) Board of Medicine. Hayden on Monday evening shared the good news on his Instagram account which showed a portion of the signed document dated July 7 by Miguel Noche, Jr., chairman of the PRC's Board of Medicine.
The document detailed in brief its grounds for granting Hayden’s petition for reinstatement which was largely due to the “complainant's failure to oppose as desistance or waiver of her right to object to the petition.”
It pointed out that there is “no cogent reason to further burden petitioner with the remnants of a reckless faux pas when his overall conduct shows a manifestly repentant heart. While others simply passively wait for the period revocation to lapse, petitioner positively and quickly acted to prove himself a worthy medical doctor to this Board and the Commission.
"Wherefore, all premises considered and for reasons of equity and justice, the Board hereby grants petitioner's petition for reinstatement. Dr. Hayden Kho is hereby reinstated to the practice as medical doctor."
Hayden quoted two Bible verses in the photo’s caption, Psalms 71:20 and Joel 2:25, to “reflect what my heart wants to say about this.”
The revocation of Hayden’s license happened in November 2009 after he was found guilty of committing "immorality, dishonorable, and unethical conduct" in connection with the video recording of his sexual dalliances with various women.
One of the actresses included in the videos was Katrina Halili who filed criminal charges against Hayden for allegedly violating Republic Act 9262 or the Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children Act.
Hayden filed a petition to the Court of Appeals in August 2011 to reverse PRC’s decision but to no avail as it was rejected in July 2012. However in August of 2012, the appellate court cleared Hayden of criminal liabilities in affirmation of a Pasig City court’s dismissal of Katrina’s case against him.
In a report by ABS-CBN News on Tuesday, Hayden thanked those who “stood by him” throughout the “challenging saga” of his life. He added, “I'm grateful also to the PRC who appreciated and honored my efforts to lead a life pleasing to our real audience who is God.”
According to Hayden his latest feat is a “testimony of God's faithfulness to all those who are currently struggling and suffering from past mistakes.”
