general or his deputy or other officer designated by him, or in any
criminal proceeding before any court or grand jury, pursuant to or for a
violation of any of the provisions of this article, the attorney
general, his deputy or other officer designated by him, or the court or
grand jury, may confer immunity in accordance with the provisions of

been given a witness who has had immunity otherwise properly conferred
upon him shall not be deprived thereof.
