Has the Attorney General been briefedor would that be meaningless in a partial vacuumThe Attorney General does not, however, direct or cause charges to be laid. While the Attorney General and the Attorney General's agents may provide legal advice to the police,
the ultimate decision
 whether or not to lay charges is for the police. Once the charge is laid
the decision
 as to whether the prosecution should proceed, and in what manner, 
 for the Attorney General and the rown Attorney.!t is now an accepted and important constitutional principle that the Attorney General must carry out the "inister's criminal prosecution responsibilities
independent of Cabinet and of any partisan political pressures.
 The Attorney General's responsibility for individual criminal prosecutions must be underta#en $
and seen to be undertaken 
 on strictly ob%ective and legal criteria, free of any political considerations. Whether to initiate or stay a criminal proceeding is not an issue of government policy. This responsibility has been characteri&ed as
a matter of the Attorney General
 acting as the ueen's Attorney $ not as a "inister of the government of the day.This is not to suggest that decisions regarding criminal prosecutions are made in a
 complete vacuum
A wide range of policy considerations may be weighed in e(ecuting this responsibility, and the Attorney General may choose to consult the abinet on some of these considerations. However any decisions relating to the conduct of individual prosecutions must be the Attorney General's alone and independent of the traditional abinet decision ma#ing  process. !n practice, in the vast ma%ority of cases, these decisions are made by the Attorney General's agents, the rown Attorneys.)ltimately the Attorney General is accountable to the people of the province, through the *egislature, for decisions relating to criminal prosecutions. +uch accountability can only occur, of course, once the prosecution is completed or when a final decision has been made not to prosecute. The sub %udicae rule bars any comment on a matter before the courts that is li#ely to influence the matter. The sub %udicae rule strictly prohibits the Attorney General from commenting on prosecutions that are before the courts. Given the stature of the Attorney General's position, any public comment coming from the office
would be seen as an attempt to influence the case.
Although the Attorney general can become involved in decision$ma#ing in relation to individual criminal cases,
such a practice would leave the Minister vulnerable to accusations of political interference.
 Accordingly, it is traditional to leave the day$to$day decision$ma#ing in the hands of the Attorney General's
agents, the rown Attorneys, e(cept in cases of e(ceptional importance where the public would e(pect the Attorney General to be briefed+oon maybe on -A will observe the wrap up of GO -O due process"eaningless *egal ertainty /ule of *awhttp011en.wi#ipedia.org1wi#i1/ule2of2lawThe /ule of law in its most basic form is no one is above the law. -erhaps the most important application of the rule of law is the principle that governmental authority is legitimately e(ercised only in accordance with,

due process.
The rule of law is hostile to dictatorship and to anarchy.According to modern Anglo$American thin#ing, hallmar#s of adherence to the rule of law commonly include a clear separation of powers,
legal certainty,
 the principle of legitimate e(pectation and e3uality of all before the law.The concept is not without controversy, and it has been said that 4the phrase
