Francis T. Seow is a lawyer and a former Solicitor-General in Singapore. In 1988, while representing a lawyer detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA), Seow himself was detained without trial for alleged collusion with the CIA to subvert the local government.
Following his release from detention, Seow contested in the 1988 General Elections and lost out narrowly to the incumbent People's Action Party. Charges of alleged income tax evasion were subsequently brought against him while he was travelling in the US, where he has remained in political exile.
