Francis Khoo

Francis Khoo: Francis Khoo, Lawyer, who lived in London. Francis Khoo passed away in England this week. Francis Khoo has lived in exile for 35 years. He was wanted by the ISD in 1977 and escaped to London when his friends, G Raman, Tan Jing Quee, R Joethy, A Mahadeva, Ong Bock Chuan and many others were arrested and imprisoned by the ISD. His wife, Dr Ang Swee Chai who did not expect arrest and who did not leave with him was  subsequently arrested and imprisoned in 1977.  After her release, she joined him in London.

Dr Ang is a prominent surgeon.  She volunteered her expertise in Gaza and witnessed the massacre in Sabra and Shatilla. She wrote about the massacre in her book From Beirut to Jerusalem.  Francis and Swee Chai are exiles from Singapore. We have lost two loyal and talented Singaporeans because of the misuse of the Internal Security Act by the PAP government.
