Priit Pärkna, the deputy director general of the Estonian Police and Border Guard Board (PPA), has submitted a letter of resignation to interior minister Mart Helme (EKRE). Pärkna will instead lead the Internal Audit Office of the PPA.
Tuuli Härson, communications manager of the PPA, told ERR Priit Pärkna will start his new position as general of the Internal Audit Office on July 1. Long-time head of internal audits, Raul Vahtra, resigned in January.
Härson explained after the creation of a Border Guard department in May, other structural changes are to be expected in the PPA because most of the new department consists of former Intelligence Management and Investigation department employees, which Pärkna was the head of.
Starting June 1, the department of Intelligence Management and Investigation will no longer be in the PPA's structure.
