As the czech news provider Rozhlas reveals, the two imprisoned Bohemia Interactive employees Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar have been denied any right to post bail. After 70 days of jail, a period far longer than usual, they now face a court trial in front of a Greek jury on the acclaimed accusations of espionage on military installations. By Greek law this could mean a possible imprisonment of up to 20 years, if they are found guilty.
While the two complain about the conditions of their arrestation, they are being held in a cell with 25 other people, sleeping on the ground, a strike in the Greek legal system is to blame for the consquent postponement of their hearing. The parents of the two young Czechs have now forwarded a request to the President and the Prime Minister of the Republic. Rozhlas quotes them underlining the emotional change the two prisoners have gone through since the day of their arrest: „Our boys no longer tell us, that it's alright“, in recent calls they only say: „Please save us!“
