An 18-year-old man has been charged with video offences by New Zealand Police and appeared in the Christchurch District Court Monday morning.
In a statement, police said the man was arrested in the initial stages of their investigations into Friday's shooting, but he is not being charged in relation to the attack.
Police at this stage do not believe he was directly involved.
"We would like to remind people that it is an offence to distribute or possess an objectionable publication (under the Films Videos and Publications Classifications Act 1993), which carries a penalty of imprisonment," the statement read.
The live stream video of the shootings in Christchurch has been classified by the Chief Censor's Office as objectionable.
Friday's terror attacks have so far left 50 people killed and 50 others injured. The suspected gunman, 28-year-old Australian Brenton Tarrant, was charged with murder.
