Finance Minister Vilius Šapoka on Wednesday signed a decree to appoint Janušienė to the position after she won a competition. Janušienė will take the post on July 28, the ministry said.

In Šapoka's words, the State Tax Inspectorate is the institution that needs a chief who can take responsibility, possesses strategic thinking, high competences and respect to the state.

The STI has been without a permanent head after Dainoras Bradauskas was fired for official misconduct on Jan. 20.
