British Authorities Accused of Intimidation for Detention of Journalist’s Partner

Now the British authorities are fending off tough questions about the detention, and a lawsuit has been filed to declare the action illegal. It should be noted that Miranda has not been charged, or even accused of any wrongdoing. However, he was detained, questioned, and threatened with incarceration over a period of eight hours by British law enforcement authorities.
