(d) by the Cree Nation Government, if the offence is committed in the territory described in section 102.6 of that Act, excluding any part of the territory covered by an agreement entered into with a Cree community under this paragraph; and
(e) by the Kativik Regional Government, if the offence is committed in the territory referred to in section 369 of the Act respecting Northern villages and the Kativik Regional Government (chapter V-6.1).
Fines collected under this section belong to the prosecutor.
Proceedings in respect of such an offence committed in the territory of a municipality may be instituted before the competent municipal court.
