You can certainly ask, but the employer is not obligated to pay you unless it has a policy that it will pay employees who are suspended under these circumstances - and I doubt that there is such a policy. Employers must pay employees for all time worked, but as you were suspended and did not work during those three weeks, the employer is not required to pay you.
