Dr. Myrna Cabotaje, DOH regional director, said in a radio interview that "it was a preventive suspension" which is a normal process while a probe is being conducted to prevent any obstruction in the investigation.
"I would like to emphasize that it is a preventive suspension, that is part of due process," she said.
She said based on findings of their internal audit that checks the transactions of the hospitals under the DOH, auditors noted some inconsistencies that were enough to warrant an investigation, thus the preventive suspension of Mejia.
"During the course of the preventive suspension, Mejia might be cleared or not depending on the findings of the team that conducts the probe," Cabotaje added.

Dr. Myrna Cabotaje, director of the Department of Health (DOH) National Center for Disease Prevention and Control, said the immunization is expected to give birth to a generation of Filipinos who are liberated from Hepatitis B.
"It is more practical in a sense that you prevent the infection early on in life.If you complete the three doses needed, it will offer immediate protection to the child," she added.
The proposed law will supercede Republic Act (RA) 7846 or the Hepatitis Vaccination Law, which mandates that pregnant women who are positive for Hepatitis B be vaccinated to prevent them from infecting their babies.
Each Hepatitis B vaccine costs P13 per dose while vaccines for polio, measles, diphtheria and other diseases that are covered by the DOH's expanded immunization program cost much lower.
Cabotaje admitted that over the last four years, only around 40 percent of newborn infants were being immunized against the liver disease, which is way below the 80 to 100 percent global target.

Dr. Myrna Cabotaje, Cordillera CHD director, said the three A(H1N1)-related deaths in the region were a 25-year-old pregnant mother who was considered high risk when she gave birth to twins; a 10-day-old baby who suffered from respiratory disease; and a 17-year-old student, who had complications aggravated by typhoid fever.
Furthermore, she said, health authorities are looking into the possibility of a fourth death caused by conditions related to A(H1N1).
But Cabotaje said that 90 percent of the confirmed cases or 114 individuals have already recovered from the flu virus.
She reiterated that the death of the three patients were not directly caused by the A(H1N1) virus, but because of their high-risk conditions, they died of complications.
Despite the increasing number of deaths and confirmed cases of the flu, the health official assured that the situation in the region is still under control, and so there is no reason for the public to panic about the disease. What is important is for the people to keep themselves healthy by eating the right kind of food and having sufficient rest, she said.
With the unpredictable weather condition prevailing in the region, she expected a continuous increase in A(H1N1) cases.
The rainy season is also considered as the flu season, and so people suffering from flu-like symptoms must immediately seek medical attention, she said.
She said that high-risk patients are those who are suffering from other illnesses aside from A(H1N1).
