Britain's High Court on Wednesday endorsed the decision by police to hold journalist Glenn Greenwald's partner at a London airport on terrorism grounds last summer. The ruling sent chills through free expression advocates and media groups.
British officials said Friday that the trove of documents taken by National Security Agency leaker Edward J. Snowden, which it seized earlier this week at Heathrow airport, contains more than 58,000 "highly classified UK intelligence documents," which the government now assumes are in foreign hands.
Glenn Greenwald of the London Guardian has done more than anyone else in recent times to expose the dark and illicit underside of the surveillance state.
"Brazil is a big, strong country, I think one of the few nations in the world that could offer asylum to Edward Snowden," Miranda said.
Miranda said he would appeal.
