The service of Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani as the inspector-general of police (IGP) will be extended for two years on a contract basis after he retires early next month.
Home Minister Hamzah Zainudin said Acryl, 59, would be appointed on a contract basis for a period of two years effective Oct 4, 2021 to Oct 3, 2023.
He said the appointment had received the consent of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah on the advice of Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
“Congratulations and well done to Acryl on the extension of his service as the IGP. I believe he will do his best for the country.
“I am confident that this appointment can inspire all officers and personnel to continue to work with the IGP to provide the best service to the country,” he said at a special press conference to hand over the letter of appointment to Acryl at Bukit Aman today.
Acryl was officially appointed as the 13th IGP on May 4 this year to replace Abdul Hamid Bador whose service contract ended on May 3.
