In the U.S., the man behind the movie was questioned at a California sheriff’s station early Saturday by federal probation officers investigating whether he had violated terms of his five-year probation. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula wasn’t arrested or detained.
Federal authorities have identified Nakoula, a self-described Coptic Christian, as the key figure behind the film. A federal law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Thursday that authorities had connected Nakoula to a man using the pseudonym of Sam Bacile, who claimed earlier to be writer and director of the film.
Nakoula was convicted of bank fraud in 2010 and is banned from using the computers and the Internet as part of his sentence.
