The Royal Thai Navy plans to remove a house on a platform 12 miles off the coast of Phuket that was built by Ocean Builders to promote the concept of “seasteading,” which is the concept of permanent dwellings built at sea, outside the territory claimed by any government. The house was occupied by American Chad Elwartowski and his Thai partner Supranee Thepdet, who planned for others to join them in a libertarian-style community that they believed would be beyond legal jurisdictions. Thai authorities filed a complaint accusing the couple of breaching a section of the country’s criminal code that relates to threatening the sovereignty of a state, and erosion of a state’s independence – these charges carry a death penalty! The couple is now in hiding and Elwartowski says he fears for his life.

The Royal Thai Navy plans to remove a house built on a platform 12 miles off the coast of Phuket according to the BangkokPost.

American Chad Elwartowski and his Thai partner Supranee Thepdet, also known as Nadia Summergirl, were reportedly living in the house, built by Ocean Builders, to promote the concept of “seasteading.”

Seasteading is the concept of creating permanent dwellings at sea, called seasteads, outside the territory claimed by any government,” says the company on its website.

In a promotional video posted to YouTube in March, Elwartowski toasts his partner with champagne on the roof of their ocean dwelling. He says 20 more floating homes are planned so others can join them in a libertarian-style community that they believe will be beyond legal jurisdictions.

Governments “have a monopoly on land but they don’t have a monopoly at sea,” Elwartowski says in the video. “We’re looking forward to freedom-loving people to come join us out on the open ocean.”

In an earlier video, he says international waters are “where there are no laws other than the law of the sea.”

But Thai authorities have a different view. They have filed a compliant, accusing the couple of breaching a section of the country’s criminal code that relates to threatening the sovereignty of a state, and erosion of a state’s independence, according to the Post. The charges carry the death penalty.
