The Met has launched a criminal investigation following analysis of the data found on property seized from David Miranda which includes tens of thousands of classified UK intelligence documents.

David Miranda brought a legal challenge against [2] the UK police after it seized his property at Heathrow airport. The high court granted him a limited injunction to prevent the police “inspecting, copying or sharing” the data stored on the property.

The police are allowed to examine the data for national security purposes or if they are investigating whether or not Miranda is himself involved in the commission, instigation or preparation of an act of terrorism.

The court also heard that the Metropolitan Police has launched a criminal investigation after analysing the seized data. The investigation is being carried out by SO15, the group within the Met charged with investigating terrorist or extremist actions.
