The Greek Minister of Defense wants maximal punishment for the seven Greek soldiers of Albanian origin who had a picture taken with their hands making the symbol of the Albanian eagle. 

Sources from the Ministry of Defense say the seven soldiers were stopped and taken for interrogation about their actions.

Their cell phones have also been seized, based on an urgent order of this Ministry. They young men will be sent to the Ioannina regiment, where they will be held under surveillance.

Due to media reactions and Greek politics, the case has taken higher proportions than expected, forcing the military prosecution to open an investigation.

The seven soldiers will be interrogated by the Prosecution as defendants, and they even risk five years in prison.
