any proceeding brought under this chapter on the ground that the
testimony or evidence may tend to incriminate him, or subject him
to a penalty or forfeiture. An individual shall not be
prosecuted or subjected to penalty or forfeiture on account of
testimony given, or evidence produced subject to such subpoena,

has claimed his privilege against self-incrimination.
