“GOING TO COURT IS NOT A GAME: POKEMON GO TRAINERS SHOULD LOOK ELSEWHERE FOR DIGITAL CRITTERS. ” Attention Budding Pokemon Trainers: You DO NOT need to step inside a Courthouse to find Pokemon. A reminder that the use of recording devices in NSW Courts is prohibited under the Court Security Act 2005 – Section 9 – and carries a $22,000 fine or imprisonment for 12 months – or both”
Finishing the release with “Stay safe and catch em all”.
