To Catch A Tartar

A Dissident in Lee Kuan Yew’s Prison

– By Francis T. Seow

“The circumstances of Seow’s arrest and the subsequent ordeal of interrogation and detention provide occasion not only for grave disquiet over the brutal mistreatment of detainees, (They certainly put paid to any continued pretense on Lee Kuan Yew’s part that he walks in the company of civilised statesmen.) It raises another question – perhaps the most crucial one – in my own mind. I may explain, even if the effort proves, as it certainly will, an unflattering commentary on some of my own past judgments of person and events.”

– C. V. Devan Nair
