On September 2, 1967, the fort was occupied by Paddy Roy Bates, a British subject and pirate-radio broadcaster, who ejected a competing group of pirate broadcasters and claimed sovereignty on the basis of his interpretation of international law (see Legal status).
In 1968, Michael Bates (Roy's son) was summoned to court as a result of an incident during which shots were fired at a British navy vessel in the vicinity of Sealand.
In 1978, while Bates was away, the "Prime Minister" he had appointed, Professor Alexander G. Achenbach, and several Dutch citizens staged a forcible takeover of Roughs Tower, holding Bates' son Michael captive, before releasing him several days later in the Netherlands.
