Post Marmaris Hotel Holds Russian Students Hostage....



A group of 118 Russian students couldnít leave The all inclusive Icmeler Panorama Park Hotel for six hours Wednesday. They were detained by the hotelís management and told to pay $59,000 for unpaid accomodation.

The students were to leave the four-star Panorama Park, wednesday morning. In the lobby, when handing in the keys, they were told by hotel managers to pay $500 each or, otherwise, stay in the hotel. The young Russians faced the guard outpost at the exit. Two police cars arrived in no time to block the gates.

Representatives of the Moscow Spectrum agency, which had arranged the tour, were called in as well. The students were told to call their parents so that they could transfer money as the tourist agency acting for Spectrum had allegedly failed to pay for the accomodation.

The students were not allowed to go back to the rooms and tried to escape by getting over the fence. There, they were caught by police and forced back to the hotel.

After more than six-hour detention, the tourists were released but only when Russian diplomats got involved.
