23. When a matter comes under the Director’s responsibility, the Attorney General may only take charge of the matter or give instructions on its conduct after consulting the Director.
In such a case, the Attorney General is required to give the Director a notice of intent to take charge of the matter or instructions on the conduct of the matter, and publish the notice of intent or instructions in the Gazette officielle du Québec without delay. Publication may be delayed, however, if the Director considers that it may undermine the interests of justice or public policy.
The Director is required to turn the matter over to the Attorney General or act on the Attorney General’s instructions and to provide any information the Attorney General requires within the time specified.
