9. The Attorney General or a person designated by him may make an application to a judge of the Superior Court or, in the absence of a judge responsible for rendering justice, to a clerk, for the purpose of ordering a person to furnish to the applicant the information in his possession and permitting, if need be, that that person be interrogated before the clerk as to the whereabouts of the child or the person with whom the child might be.
This section applies notwithstanding any inconsistent provision of any general law or special Act providing for the confidentiality or non-disclosure of certain information or documents. However, it does not apply to a person who has received the information in the exercise of his profession and who is bound by professional secrecy towards the child or the person with whom the child might be.
