The UK's detention and anti-terror law investigation of David Miranda, partner of Guardian columnist Glenn Greenwald, and its possible consequences for media freedom were discussed by MEPs in a debate on Tuesday evening. Most speakers questioned the proportionality of the measure and asked for a thorough investigation. The European Commission stressed that this case is already under judicial review in the UK courts.
