The government earlier considered merging the FCIS into the Customs Criminal Service or the State Tax Inspectorate.

The ministry plans to recommend a candidate to be the next permanent director of the FCIS to the government for consideration.

Šarūnas Rameikis, deputy director of the FCIS, has been serving as acting director since Kęstutis Jucevičius' term of office ended last March.
