Message from Francis Khoo

“Teo Soh Lung belongs to that increasingly rare breed of lawyers who believe in social justice and human rights.  For that, she paid the price of her commitment by being imprisoned without trial under the Internal Security Act.  The ISA is a most pernicious piece of legislation which has no place in modern Singapore. Her book will give us a glimpse of her campaign against the Act and her fight for freedom.  I do hope a new generation of Singaporeans will read and be inspired by her courage and take up the challenge to see the eventual abolition of the Act.

I would have loved to be present at the book launch but, given my state of exile from the country of my birth, must send my sincere apologies.  My deepest congratulations to a heroine of Singapore.”
