Whenever a witness in any civil or criminal proceeding refuses, on the basis of his or her privilege against self-incrimination, to testify or to provide other information in a proceeding before or ancillary to the Court of the Osage Nation, the Judge presiding over the proceeding shall delay any further testimony and immediately confer with the Prosecutor concerning the witness’s refusal to testify. If the Prosecutor concurs, the Judge shall communicate to the witness an order issued under this part and the witness may not refuse to comply with the order on the basis of his or her privilege against self-incrimination; but no testimony or other information compelled under the order or any information directly or indirectly derived from such testimony or other information may be used against the witness in any criminal proceeding, except a prosecution for perjury, giving false statement, or otherwise failing to comply with the order.
