Legal injunction extended over seized Miranda material

Solicitors for David Miranda, the partner of the Guardian journalist, who was detained at Heathrow, have agreed that emergency interim injunction granted last week should continue until there is a full hearing.

This will prevent the Home Secretary and the Metropolitan Police from inspecting, copying or disturbing the date and material seized from Mr Miranda, unless it is necessary to protect national security or to establish whether Mr Miranda was involved in an act preparatory to terrorism.

One additional exception, that it can be used for the collection of information that may be of use in terrorism. This order will remain in place until there is a full judicial review into the legality of the detention of Mr Miranda under the terrorism laws.
