He was charged with loitering and contempt of court. He was arrested for crimes.

It is understood that the arrested man was an interior designer. He stayed at the scene for about half an hour to shoot. All the shots were scenes outside the courtroom, and no specific people or selfies were taken.

The police said that the purpose of the man's filming and whether the crime was related to the nature of his work are one of the directions of investigation, and it is not convenient to disclose details for the time being.
