Thailand busts 'seasteading' effort by American

Thai authorities have raided a floating home in the Andaman Sea. They have become partners in the "seasteading" movement, which promotes international freedom of association. Thailand's navy said they endangered national sovereignty, open to being punishable by life imprisonment or death.

The navy filed a complaint with them on the southern resort island of Phuket.

Chad Elwartowski said in an email Thursday that he believes he and Supranee Thepdet did nothing wrong.

Thailand's territorial waters, just over 12 nautical miles from shore, have said they have gone into hiding, have been living part-time on a small structure. Thai authorities say they have revoked Elwartowski's visa.
