HOW could forensic work be relevant to the operations of a clanhouse?
Universiti Sains Malaysia graduate Khoo Lay See, 26, said forensic investigation does not only concern dead bodies but also documents and signature exami-nations to ascertain authenticity or for-gery.
“Examination of documents and che-ques is perhaps one way that I could contribute to the Khoo Kongsi,” she said while welcoming the formation of the Khoo Graduates’ Association.
The scientific forensic officer at Kuantan’s Hospital Tengku Ampuan Af-zan said through the graduates’ association, younger clansmen could start learning about clan management as they would eventually take over from the senior management.
Political analyst Khoo Kay Peng, exe- cutive-director of Sedar (Socio-econo- mic Development and Research), said networking via the graduates’ associa- tion would keep the clan dynamic and alive.
“A clan is about people and should not just be turned into a historical artefact for tourists to come and see,” said Kay Peng, 32, who obtained his Masters in Inter-national Relations in 2004 from Warwick University.
