Charges will be pressed against an additional nine suspects, among them seven Thais, one German and one person of an unknown nationality, for their alleged involvement in the illegal construction of a “seastead” in Thai territorial waters in the Andaman Sea.

People found guilty of owning seasteads, or permanent settlements on structures located in an area of the sea just outside the jurisdiction of this country, will be “subject to the death sentence” under Section 129 of the Criminal Code, said Wanchat Chunhathanom, the state prosecutor in Phuket.

Seasteading made headlines earlier this year when an American, Andrew Elwartowsky and his Thai wife, Suranee “Nadia” Thepdet, were found to be operating one such housing platform.

The seastead was seen as a threat to Thai sovereignty under Section 119 of the same law, and was illegal under the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. They claimed that their six-metre-wide platform, located about 14 nautical miles (26 kilometres) off the Phuket coastline, was not in Thai territory.

Vice Admiral Krisi Keson, deputy secretary-general of the Thai Maritime Enforcement Command Centre, reportedly insisted that the area is under Thailand’s sovereignty. Mr Wanchat did not name all nine suspects in the case, but did identify a German man, Coch Ruger, the owner of Ocean Builders, the company that helped the pair install the seastead.

Immigration police are revoking his visa and gathering more evidence against him, said Mr Wanchat. Officers currently believe that the group of American, German and Thai suspects conspired to establish an “independent state” in Phuket, he said.

According to investigators, Mr Elwartowsky and his wife, Ms Suranee, were also accused of persuading people to build seasteads off the Phuket coast. The pair was earlier summoned to report to police on June 25, but did not show up.

“We’ll summon them again on July 15, or they will face arrest warrants,” said Pol Col Nikon Somsuk, chief of the Phuket-based Wichit police station. Authorities earlier said that the couple may have fled to Tarutao island in the south of Thailand.

why a submarine yacht and global mobility may not be a bad idea after all…


The ultimate prepper concept

All this makes a submarine yacht the ultimate prepper concept - far better than a yacht.

The seizure of russian yachts on no legal grounds | dilbar grounded in hamburg | escape the witchhunt - russian yachts flee to indian ocean |

A submarine yacht is equally comfortable in open ocean or in the harbor. This makes the submarine yacht the only yacht concept that can avoid harbors and marinas alltogether.

The submarine yacht stays a mile offshore and recieves its business partners with a short yacht tender trip to perform a in person meeting. No passport proceedure is required, no harbor captain has a say or needs to give a permit.

It is the only concept that keeps you comfy and mobile even when the warhawks finally get their way and fabricate ww3 .

The real danger of “political nonsense talker forums”…the tyrants read them …and take them seriously…

The “seasteading narrative” needs serious ajustments - seasteading as death worthy offense…

Seasteading is not about (doing) politics - it is rather about escaping (nasty) politics in all its forms

So looking for a way to go galt has become the center of business viability planning after two years of dictatorial covid lockdowns, cancel culture and undue interference of all kind running wild on the planet.
