As some might recall, Greece tossed two Bohemia Interactive employees in jail back in September. The charge? Espionage, of course. The two were working on Arma 3 prior to their arrest, but they've denied that they were doing anything other than having a holiday at the time.

In an appeal to Greek president Karolos Papoulias, Czech president Václav Klaus has asked that Papoulias pay "special attention" to the matter.

The duo was arrested on Sunday on charges of espionage after conducting surveillance on the island of Lemnos for their company's newest video game: Arma 3.
