Release of Jailed Bohemia Interactive Employees Delayed By Protests in Greece

The Bohemia Interactive developers (Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar) who were locked up under the suspicion that they shot video and took pictures of a military base in Greece have yet to be released, and according to the website dedicated to the duo, it is due to riots in the country over austerity measures.

"It is sad, and at the same time ridiculous, that our two dear friends are being detained for what appears to be nothing in comparison to these videos," reads the latest update on "It seems to be very hard to determine what is allowed to be filmed, and what isn't, especially with the clear public exposure of these military objects, very close to public areas."

The post also highlights the fact that there are already plenty of other videos of the Limnos Military installations in Greece – the facility the duo are accused of taking "14 frames of video" of a month ago. Buchta and Pezlar have been held in Greece for over a month.

Sadly we do not know when the Bohemia Interactive employees will be released either. We will continue to follow this story as it develops.
