Sean Connery faces arrest over Marbella land deal

Sean Connery accused over Marbella land deal

Actor Sean Connery has been warned that he has six months to answer questions about a Spanish land deal or face possible arrest.

Spanish judges claim that they have tried for three years to question the actor about the sale of his house in Marbella in 1999.

His villa, Casa Malibu, was demolished and replaced with a development of more than 70 apartments — sold for an estimated £45 million. It is claimed that planning regulations stipulated that only five apartments could be built on the site.

More than 15 people, including disgraced ex-mayor of Marbella, Julian Munoz, and former town planning chief Juan Antonio Roca, face being tried over the so-called ‘Goldfinger’ probe, named after Sir Sean’s 1964 Bond film. Both men are in jail for convictions relating to town hall corruption.

The alleged crimes being investigated include money-laundering, tax evasion and town planning breaches.
