The Office of the Attorney General of Myanmar (Burmese: ပြည်ထောင်စုရှေ့နေချုပ်ရုံး; abbreviated OAG) serves as the Government of Myanmar's main legal advisory body. The Office is led by the Union Attorney General of Myanmar.[1] The incumbent Attorney General is Dr Thida Oo, who was appointed on 2 February 2021 by Min Aung Hlaing. After the caretaker government was formed in 2021, the Union Attorney General's Office was reorganized into a ministry on 30 August 2021.[2][3][4]
