Moldovian Dancer On Wrecked Cruise Ship Resents Prostitute Reference
At the time of the event, we met Domnica Cemortan, 26, a former cruise ship "hostess" and dancer from Mondolvia. It was said in a variety of publications that Cemoran was having dinner at the time with Schettino and somehow wound up on the bridge. Now, Cemortan is suing Schettino and the cruise line for damages of $280,000-$420,000 over the $15,000 being offered to all who sailed.
"The media has presented her as a prostitute," insists Gianluca Madonna, Cemortan's Italian lawyer. Apparently, at the time of the accident, Cemortan told investigators that she was "in love" with Schettino, a suggestion she later told the UK's Daily Telegraph that she rejected, reports Travel Blackboard.
Cemortan is now seeking damages against Schettino and the cruise line for failing to defend and rehire her. She might also go after several Italian newspapers, magazines and TV channels who she says "slandered her reputation for suggesting she had been involved with the captain."
"She is a hard worker and is a beautiful dancer, very professional," said attorney Madonna, insisting his client had done nothing wrong and had "risked her life helping Russian passengers because there was no one on board who spoke Russian."
Since the accident, Cemortan has not worked regularly and the cruise line did not renew her contract.
