(b)  given evidence or information in connection with proceedings brought by any person against the discriminator or any other person under this Act,
(c)  alleged that the discriminator or any other person has committed an act which, whether or not the allegation so states, would amount to a contravention of this Act, or
(d)  otherwise done anything under or by reference to this Act in relation to the discriminator or any other person,
