    Sec. 16. (a) Any person who intentionally in breach of fiduciary duty misuses charitable assets is subject to punitive damages in an appropriate amount upon a trial on the issue.
    (b) Upon an application to a court of competent jurisdiction, in which the Attorney General alleges that a charitable trust needs to be protected or the trustees of a charitable organization or trust have engaged in a breach of fiduciary duty toward the organization, and he seeks injunctive relief and removal of such trustees, the Court may, as part of the injunctive relief, and after a hearing where such trustees shall have an opportunity to be heard, appoint temporarily or permanently a receiver or additional trustees to protect and operate the organization and may temporarily, or as ultimate relief for breach of duty or to protect the trust, permanently remove any charitable organization's trustees, corporate officers, directors and members from office and appoint replacements to protect the public interest.
