UK government given Tuesday deadline over David Miranda data

The high court has given the government until Tuesday night to provide detailed evidence about why it wants the right to trawl and share data seized using terror laws from the partner of a Guardian journalist.Lord Justice Beatson and Judge Kenneth Parker said in a judgment outlining their decision to allow the police to continue accessing material taken from David Miranda that the ruling was made because while they could not judge the strength of the government’s claims about the national security risks the material would pose if disclosed, they did have “serious assertions by responsible persons”.
