Posted on May 10, 2007
The Treasury Department is investigating documentarian Michael Moore over a recent trip to Cuba that the government says may have violated the trade embargo. Moore brought a group of ailing 9/11 rescue workers to the island nation in making his latest film, “Sicko,” an exploration of the healthcare system.
Award-winning film-maker Michael Moore is being investigated by US authorities for a possible violation of the trade embargo against Cuba, he has announced.
Mr Moore took a group of 9/11 rescue workers to Cuba in March to film part of his new documentary about healthcare provision in the US.
The US Treasury has sent him a letter asking him to explain himself.
