Two Bohemia Interactive staffers accused of spying on military installations while visiting Greece have been denied appeal, according to European news reports translated by Eurogamer. The pair of ArmA 3 developers, Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar, have been held for 70 days, and were made to wait for an inordinate period before hearing the results of their appeal thanks to industrial action within the Greek legal system. Having lost their appeal, the two will stand trial, and are faced with the prospect of up to 20 years in jail.
Bohemia Interactive has stood staunchly by the pair, who insist they were merely on holiday. Conditions in the facility in which the pair are being held are allegedly pretty rough, with upwards of 20 prisoners in one room, forced to sleep on the floor. Buchta and Pezlar have reportedly lost their optimism as the weeks drag by.
