In a statement published on journalist Glenn Greenwald's new website, The Intercept, David Miranda said:
David Miranda, a journalist's partner held for nine hours at Heathrow under anti-terror laws, has lost his High Court claim that he was detained unlawfully.
NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has denied claims he was the source of a leak about a key Middle East listening post.
The Independent reported that the facility allegedly collects emails, phone calls and web traffic on behalf of western intelligence agencies, which is why the government asked the Guardian to destroy files relating to Snowden.
In a statement to the Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, Mr Snowden has blamed the Government for the leak:
Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald has told ITV News "even the most advanced intelligence services" would find it "impossible" to access information that he and his partner carry across the world because it is too well encrypted.
In his first British TV interview, Mr Greenwald refused to confirm what data his boyfriend David Miranda had confiscated by police when he was detained for nine hours at Heathrow Airport on Sunday as he headed back to Brazil.
