Bohemia claims staff arrests in Greece were a misunderstanding
Bohemia Interactive, the studio behind the ultra-realistic military shooter ARMA series has spoken about their two staff members who were arrested in Greece for espionage.
In a statement released on their forums Bohemia said that the two arrested staff members were on holiday and they create their games using publicly available data only. They added that they were hoping to clear up the issues surrounding the arrests in a quick and safe manner.
The statement read, "We can confirm that two Bohemia Interactive employees, our colleagues and friends, were arrested during their holiday trip to Lemnos. They visited the island with the sole purpose of experiencing the island's beautiful surroundings. Since its establishment in 1999, Bohemia Interactive has created games based only upon publicly available information. We always respect the law and we've never instructed anybody to violate the laws of any country. The same is true for Arma 3."
"Currently," it went on, "all our effort goes towards supporting the guys over there, as well as their friends and families affected by this difficult situation. We sincerely hope that this is an unfortunate misunderstanding of their passion as artists and creators of virtual worlds."
