Moldovan dancer Domnica Cemortan admitted at Francesco Schettino’s trial she had been in a romantic relationship with the captain, and had been present on the ship’s bridge at the moment when the ship ran aground.
Francesco Schettino, the captain of the Costa Concordia cruise ship, faces manslaughter charges after the vessel ran aground in Italy, claiming the lives of 32 of those on board.
Domnica Cemortan said: “The story that I distracted the captain is fake, because I was very far from him, he was working and acting like a captain.”
The Moldovan feels all the blame for the crash is being heaped Francesco Schettino, but said there “can not be only one person accused for this big accident, and I asking myself where are the others, where are the other officers in this story?”
