Miranda, a Brazilian citizen and partner of journalist Glenn Greenwald who exposed secret surveillance programs of the US and UK governments, had filed court proceedings against the government to retrieve items that were seized during his 9-hour detention at Heathrow airport, including his cell phone, computer, memory sticks, smart watch, DVDs and games consoles.

Miranda’s detention on Sunday, in which Miranda says he was subject to “frightening, stressful and intimidating” interrogation and threats of imprisonment, has sparked outrage over the UK’s abuse of Schedule 7, part of the UK’s Terrorism Act 2000.

Miranda had been returning from a visit with film-maker Laura Poitras, who helped break the spying revelations stories.
