Law/Patents - Law (general) / A judicial sentence from Hong Kong
English term or phrase: SPP(Ag)
Hello,
I am translating a transcript of an audio recording of a sentence of a criminal case issued by a High Court of Hong Kong.

The text describes those who are present before the judge:

Ms xxxx, ***SPP(Ag)***** of the Department of Justice for HKSAR.

Mr. xxxx , instructed by XXXXXX, assigned by DLA, for the accused.

Does anyone know what this abreviation mean?

Thank you in advance for your help.
