A nonstationary anomalous Hall current is calculated for a voltage biased Josephson junction, which is composed of two s-wave superconducting contacts deposited on the top of a three-dimensional topological insulator (TI). A homogeneous Zeeman field was assumed at the surface of the TI. The problem has been considered within the ballistic approximation and on the assumption that tunneling of electrons between contacts and the surface of the TI is weak. In this regime the Josephson current has no features of the 4π-periodic topological effect which is associated with Andreev bound states. It is shown that the Hall current oscillates in time. The phase of these oscillations is shifted by π/2 with respect to the Josephson current and their amplitude linearly decreases with the electric potential difference between contacts. It is also shown that the Hall current cannot be induced by a stationary phase difference of the contact's order parameters.A nonstationary anomalous Hall current is calculated for a voltage biased Josephson junction, which is composed of two s-wave superconducting contacts deposited on the top of a three-dimensional topological insulator (TI).
