A woman's fight against crime
Valery Costa started her carreer in the struggle against organised crime when she took on the difficult job of warder in a high security prison. She took to the job at once and was highly successful. Her work impressed the Ministry of Justice so much that she was taken on to help the fight against terrorist groups and drug-trafficers. Before she took over she had already become the general secretary of the justice department. She is not only the first woman to take up such a position in the government but also the first woman to be placed at the head of the war against organised crime. She doesn't think that being a woman makes any difference to her role: "I'm making exactly the same sacrifices as the men who had the job before me. I'm taking up the story from where they left off - that's all."
