Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras will be directly dealing with the matter of two detained Czechs on suspicion of espionage. He promised that to the Czech Prime Minister Petr Nečas.

Czech prime minister met his counterpart near the end of the European Union summit in Brussels.

“I asked Mr. Prime Minister Samaras to ensure Greek authorities give this matter their attention to avoid any kind of misunderstanding that could hurt the relations between our two countries. I can say that Mr. Samaras reacted very positively and said that he will pay attention to this matter,” Czech Prime Minister said.

According to a father of one of the detained men Miloslav Buchta, this decision by the Greek Prime Minister has brought new hope for a positive resolution of this matter.

“These are some very positive news for us, we’re extremely happy to hear this. We’d like to thank Mr. Prime Minister Nečas for giving his attention to this matter. We have high hopes that all this will be resolved in favor of the guys and that they will be able to go back home on bail or some other way,” he said.

The Czech game developers were arrested due to photography and video capture of military objects on the island of Lemnos. According to the Greek law they could stay detained in jail for up to 18 months, out of which they have served two. Last week the court denied their request to be released on bail.
