MP demands answers over Miranda case
SWANSEA East MP Sian James has written to Home Secretary seeking assurances that the government was not behind the detention of David Miranda at Heathrow airport for nine hours.
Miranda is the partner of journalist Glenn Greenwald who published claims by whistleblower Edward Snowden of widespread email and phone surveillance.
The Metropolitan Police says its actions were legally sound.
But officials responsible for reviewing the use of terrorism powers are seeking an investigation.
Mrs James said she had received a substantial number calls and emails on the issue.
"People see this as misuse of power," she added.
"They are justifiably worried that the government is behind what appears to be little more than an act of revenge for the embarrassment which recent revelations have caused."
