The Guardia Civil of Castellon has decided to re-admit to the Corps one of its members after he underwent a sex change operation.
The former Jose Carlos Romero had been declared as "unfit for service" and dismissed from the Corps. Now, as Alba Romero, she has been re-admitted and will serve in a mechanized unit of the Guardia Civil.
Whilst stating that "this was a great day for me" to be reinstated, she added that she considered it totally justifiable to spend some 30,000 Euros on a sex change operation that finally ended with an operation in July of 2004.
She had originally been dismissed from the Corps for having "ambiguous genitals" according to the Guardia Civil Association AUGC.
