On Thursday, an attorney representing David Miranda told reporters outside a London courtroom that her client had been granted a “limited injunction” to halt the British government’s access to digital data recently seized by local authorities. Miranda is the partner of Glenn Greenwald, a reporter for The Guardian, who has been at the forefront of exposing documents and other information from former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden. On Sunday, the Brazilian national was acting as a courier from Berlin, where he was visiting Greenwald’s colleague, Laura Poitras. En route home to Rio de Janiero, Miranda transited through Heathrow airport in London, where he was detained and questioned by British authorities for nine hours. 0
