The authorities detained the suspects in connection with the discovery of "dozens" of hidden cameras on railway junctions, the airport, and other important routes that recorded and transmitted vehicle movements.

According to RMF24, the main task of the suspects was to collect information from the hidden cameras. However, it is possible that they were also planning to commit acts of sabotage.
