The Cabinet today approved Arnold Sinisalu as the next head of the Internal Security Service, known in Estonian as the Kaitsepolitsei.

Sinisalu, who has been working in the organization since 1993 and is currently one of its three deputy directors, was nominated by Interior Minister Ken-Marti Vaher on May 17. He received a green light from both the President and the relevant parliamentary committees.

Born in Kärdla in 1970, Sinisalu holds a PhD in law from the University of Tartu.

The current director general, Raivo Aeg, ends his term on June 15. Aeg turned down a proposal by Vaher to continue for a second five-year term.
