Bohemian Interactive developers Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar, arrested last September after being accused of spying on Greek military bases, have been released on bail. 

The pair claimed that they were merely tourists on vacation, but nevertheless Greek authorities kept them imprisoned for 128 days. Released on a bail of 5000 Euros each, Buchta and Pezlar will be able to return home and visit their families, but their legal troubles will still loom over for some time. 

The news comes from helpivanmartin.org, a fan group dedicated to helping bring the two developers home. 

Both Buchta and Pezlar were working on the upcoming military shooter ArmA III before their arrest, and were also contributing to the level design on the upcoming standalone release of DayZ from behind bars through notes and letters, via permission from the Greek authorities.
