Couple’s sea home vision sunk by Thai navy charges

Couple’s sea home vision sunk by Thai navy charges

A US bitcoin investor could face the death penalty after Thailand’s navy accused him of violating the country’s sovereignty by building a ’seastead’ home off the coast. Chad Elwartowski and his Thai girlfriend Supranee Thepdet are facing charges of threatening the kingdom’s independence after authorities found their ocean-based home about 12 nautical miles from shore.

If they were more than 12 nautical miles, they were in international waters. I am pretty sure he checked the distance first.

This is called putting your money where your mouth is and not just having some stupid "Freedom isn't Free" sticker on the bumper of your government bailout Silverado. We are not free in any true meaning of the word. We are under constant threat of violence from our governments if we do not follow the arbitray rules they put in place. Good on these people for being brave enough to do this.

Thailand should consider the death sentence for the horrible men (animals) who use the sex trade to earn their living. Especially when it involves children.

they're stupid for assuming 12nm is international waters, you don't even get out of the exclusion zone till you hit 200nm. seems like a basic misunderstanding of stated laws
