Argentina denies ‘threat’ to British cruise ship

The Foreign Ministry denied today that Buenos Aires sea port authorities threatened British Queen Victoria cruise ship to lower its “red duster” flag, the ensign for the United Kingdom.

“They are just rumors. The Queen Victoria entered the Buenos Aires port on January 28 from Montevideo and sailed to Puerto Madryn the same day without any inconveniences. The ship didn’t violate any regulations and no infractions were sanctioned,” said the Ministry in a press release.

In an article published in the Daily Mail, a former First Sea Lord who served in the Malvinas War denounced that while “dining [in the ship] with the captain one night, she told how she had been threatened with a fine of $10,000, and warned there would be trouble, if she didn't take down the red flag”.
