Miranda's lawyers apply for interim injunction over seized data

Miranda's lawyers apply for interim injunction over seized data

David Miranda's lawyers have applied for injunction to stop UK government and police copying data seized at Heathrow. Lawyers for partner of Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald were to present the case for injunction at high court on Thursday. They had applied for an interim injunction to prevent the police or the government using, copying or sharing any of the data they may have taken from his laptop, phone and other electronic equipment they seized at Heathrow, The Guardian said. The defense says the Metropolitan police misused Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act 2000 and had no powers to detain a transit passenger who had not formally entered the UK or Northern Ireland.
