ARMA 3 Developers Released from Greece

The past 120 days have been a difficult journey for Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar, but things are finally turning in their favor. Ivan and Martin are two Czech developers for Bohemia Interactive who went to Greece where they were going to get pictures and videos to use in the upcoming game ARMA 3, but things didn't go as planned. Upon them arriving in Greece and beginning to take pictures and video they were accused of espionage and were put in jail. 

After understanding the situation and trying to find the solution to getting these two guys back to their families they've finally been released from prison on bail. The community website HelpIvanMartin.org showed that the bail was 5,000 Euro's each, which translates into $6,686.50 American dollars. 

Once again all this was due to them being accused of espionage when they supposedly were taking pictures and video of military areas inside of Greece. Bohemia Interactive stated in the starting portions of this fiasco that the two were on vacation and were not there on official company business, and they never entered any military area during their visit. 

It's been a long journey for Ivan and Martin and we at home did everything we could to help get these guys back home to their families. Now that they're free all we can say is welcome home we missed you guys!
