British law enforcement said in official documents that the domestic partner of reporter Glenn Greenwald was involved in espionage and terrorism when he tried to carry documents from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden through a London airport in August.

  David Miranda was detained and questioned for nine hours at London’s  Heathrow Airport on Aug. 18 while traveling from Germany to  Brazil. Once back in Brazil, he filed legal action against the British government,  asking for a judicial review of the detainment and demanding that  materials seized from him by British authorities be returned.  

  At a court hearing for Miranda’s lawsuit this week in London, a  document called a “Ports Circulation Sheet,” prepared by  Scotland Yard in consultation with the MI5 counterintelligence  agency, was read into the record, Reuters reported.

  The Sheet was given to British border posts ahead of Miranda’s  arrival in August, though the exact date of the document is  unclear.

“Intelligence indicates that Miranda is likely to be involved  in espionage activity which has the potential to act against the  interests of UK national security,” the document states.

“We assess that Miranda is knowingly carrying material the release of which would endanger people’s lives,” the document says. “Additionally the disclosure, or threat of disclosure, is designed to influence a government and is made for the purpose of promoting a political or ideological cause. This therefore falls within the definition of terrorism…”
