Goa: Russian rape victim sacked from five-star hotel job

December 09, 2009 21:15 IST

The Russian girl, who had alleged rape by Goa politician John Fernandes, on Wednesday claimed she was fired from her job at a five-star hotel.

The girl claimed that when she went to inquire about when she can resume her duty, she was told to leave the job.

"They told me that they have been instructed by a senior politician to fire me and ask me to leave the country by tomorrow," she said.

"They said that I was a good worker but they are helpless and can't allow me to continue in the service," she said.

The Russian girl was allegedly raped by John Fernandes, a south Goa based politician, on December 1.

John had unsuccessfully contested the 2007 Goa legislative assembly elections in Benaulim constituency for the Save Goa Front party, floated by Public Works Department Minister Churchill Alemao.

The accused, who was granted anticipatory bail by the court today, surrendered before the Crime Branch, which is investigating the case.
