40. Where it is concluded that a public office holder has violated the law, this Regulation or the code of ethics and professional conduct, the competent authority shall impose a penalty.
However, where the competent authority is the Associate Secretary General referred to in section 37, the penalty shall be imposed by the Secretary General of the Conseil exécutif. Furthermore, if the penalty proposed is the dismissal of public office holder appointed or designated by the Government, the penalty may be imposed by the Government only; in that case, the Secretary General of the Conseil exécutif may suspend the public office holder immediately, without remuneration, for a period not exceeding 30 days.
