Principality of Sealand offers safe haven to seastead couple.

April 29, 2019 — shinohai

The Principality of Sealand has extended an offer of safe haven to Chad Elwartowski & Nadia Supranee Thepdet, who are accused of violating Thai sovereignty and face either life imprisonment or death if captured. The pair set up a small structure 14 nautical miles off Thailand's coast, and billed the floating home the "world's first seastead" in a facebook post dated April 13th. The couple fled prior to a Royal Thai Navy task force raid, and are believed to be in hiding on the mainland now according to police.

Sealand said further in their statement:

Such a draconian reaction from a national government serves as a stark reminder:why it is important to challenge the status quo. We hope for a swift & peaceful resolution to the situation, & are ready to help in whatever way possible.
