(8/31/2002)

Bali's ku dé ta Restaurant is planning a special red, white, and blue dinner to honor the Captain and crew of the Chilean Navy's four-masted barquentine Esmeralda during its early September call in Bali. On Wednesday evening, September 4, 2002, a sumptuous array of Chilean wines and seafood delicacies will be served with the Captain and officers of the ship as special guests of the restaurant. An 18-piece orchestra comprised of sailors from the Esmeralda will provide dance music for the evening.

The ku dé ta Restaurant has prepared a special "wine & dine" offer for Rp. 975,000 net per person and a "standing only wine and canapés" option for only Rp. 575,000 net per person. Music from the orchestra will continue throughout the evening with doors open to the public and a cash bar from 11.00 p.m..

A Ship with a Long and Sometimes Troubled Past

Built in 1952 and with a home port in Valparaiso, Chile, Esmeralda, at an overall length of 371 feet, is the world's second largest sailing ship. While the ship's mission today is as a roving goodwill ambassador, its visit to Wellington, New Zealand in December of 2001, was tainted with controversy. Members of the New Zealand Chapter of Amnesty International staged protests in connection with the visit, citing the ship's alleged use as a torture and prison ship during the reign of General Augusto Pinochet. According to Amnesty International, some 100 men and women were held on the ship without charges or trial, including Father Michael Woodward who later died as a result of tortures allegedly inflicted while held prisoner on the Esmeralda.

The Chilean Navy consistently denied the charges made against the ship and its personnel by those testifying at the Chilean National Commission on Truth and Reconciliation. No individual has ever been prosecuted in connection with the incidents.

How to Book
