The Home Office has said that the reason behind examining files seized from David Miranda is; "crucial public security concerns."
We are pleased that David Miranda's legal team and the court have agreed with us that there is a compelling case for this highly-sensitive stolen material to be retained by the police, and that all the documents retrieved may be examined on both national security and specified criminal grounds.
The examination of this documentation is motivated by crucial public security concerns, something clearly demonstrated by today's consent order and the release of the witness statements.
