SEPTEMBER 16: With the total destruction of the World Trade Center in New York, and the bombing of the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and the loss of four commercial airliners resulting in thousands of deaths and injuries, the world has suddenly become aware of the terrorist threat to civilized society. Yet less than ten miles from the shoreline of England is a armed terrorist base that is illegally occupying a former UK military installation, and claiming that they are not subject to any law - except their own.
In the wake of the bombing of New York City and Washington, D.C. by terrorists using ordinary means to bring a sophisticated society to its knees, it is time for Essex Police to arrest the terrorists on Rough Tower and to immediately close down their military base!
The USA Federal Courts ruled in 1990 that Roy Bates claim to Rough Tower as an independent principality is nonsense. "Sealand" does not exist as a sovereign state, and a principality can only get its sovereignty from a sovereign power. Her Majesty did not invest Roy, Joan or Michael with any powers - they are mere terrorist thugs squatting on UK property.
But until recently the radio, television, newspaper, magazine and Internet services had all fallen for the Bates Family ultimate big bluff.
It all began when the USA and the UK governments announced plans for draconian laws to intercept email in order to weed out the terrorists from among us. Not necessarily cyber terrorists, but terrorists who used the Internet in order to disguise their location.
Flying in to London's Heathrow Airport came an American engineer - to work on Rough Tower, and flying in to his life came Work Permits and the words "unauthorized entry". Everyone thought that the HavenCo behind this marvel of Internet freedom that was supposed to be taking shape on Rough Tower, was a "Sealand" or foreign operation ... foreign that is to UK company laws and regulations.
But it took RSG a few key strokes to discover that back in August of last year, that is, the year 2000 when all of this new nonsense began, son Michael Roy Bates, born on the 2nd of August 1952 to Roy and Joan Bates of Southend on Sea, Essex, England, was not a "Sealand" prince, but a plain old British citizen! For it was Michael with Ryan Donald Lackey, born on the 17th of March 1979, and a citizen of the United States, who became listed as codirectors of HavenCo Limited, an ordinary off the shelf UK company which was incorporated in London on the 22nd of August 2000, and registered with DTI Companies House as company number 04056934.
You can find Haven Co Limited for yourself - not on the end of a winch and a rope about 100 feet above sea level on an old World War II relic called HMS Fort Roughs on the Rough Tower standing on an old sunken barge sitting upon the Rough Sands, but on a street in London, England.
The Registered Office for all law suits that may be filed against HavenCo Limited will be accepted according to British law at 11 Kintyre House, Cold Harbour, London, E14 9NL. It is a private limited company that has its country of origin in the United Kingdom, and it is due to file its next accounts with the British Government DTI Companies House on the 22nd of June 2002.
What of Michael Roy Bates, he who calls himself a prince? Well his legal address is 87 Pall Mall, Leigh on Sea, in the county of Essex, with a British Royal Mail postal code of SS9 1RF in England!
Michael it seems, is none other than the heir of a terrorist base that is able to mount an attack on the UK mainland. A year or so ago Interpol closed down an offshoot of this terrorist enterprise in Spain, and they were negotiating to buy tanks and jet aircraft to equip a terrorist army and airforce.
The time has come to demand action from Essex Police to take this UK miliary base back ... before the terrorists who occupy it now create mayhem and terror on the UK mainland. Surely the terror suffored by the people on the East Coast of the USA is a lesson enough that terrorists must be stopped before their terror is unleashed.
