PHUKET: An American man and his Thai partner say they are in hiding from Thai authorities and are fearful for their lives after the Royal Thai Navy filed a police complaint against them over a “seastead” living platform built in the waters more than 40 kilometres south of Phuket.

 

The Royal Thai Navy last Friday (Apr 12) filed a criminal charge with the Wichit Police of the couple breaching Section 119 of Criminal Code, reported the Bangkok Post on Saturday. 

 

The section concerns any acts that cause the country or parts of it to fall under the sovereignty of a foreign state or deterioration of the state’s independence. It is punishable by death or life imprisonment.

I'm sure you're correct but I think they were looking for an offshore address for tax purposes.😁

Well, if - if - it really is in international waters, did he and the wife go to immigration and get an exit and entry stamp in their passports every time they went there? No? Illegal exit and entry every time... can't have it both ways, just sayin'....

Does that mean they will kill us for flying the American Flag outside our condo door?  I often told the X wife that inside our Condo, it is America and we will make decisions like Americans, not Thais.
