Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar are finally heading home after spending over 120 days in Greek jail. The two have been released on €5000 bail for each man, and they will be spending their time free back in the Czech Republic.
Buchta and Pezlar work for Bohemia Interactive, the development team behind the upcoming ArmA 3. The duo were arrested late last year on charges of espionage in Greece, after allegedly taking photos of military property during a vacation.
HelpIvanMartin.org has been keeping track of the developments in their jail time and trial — which still has no set date as judges are still on strike in Greece. Pezlar and Buchta will be spending their time back home until their court date is finally made official.
The pair have spent more time in jail than anyone had anticipated. Were the Greek judicial system not in a time of unrest, they likely could have been tried more than two months ago.
Hopefully we will get some news from Martin Pezlar and Ivan Buchta themselves after they’ve spent some quality time with the families they have not seen in months.
