A MARBELLA judge has ordered Bond star Sir Sean Connery to pay 3.3 million euros after a Costa del Sol property investigation.
The charges follow the Scottish actor’s involvement in planning irregularities regarding the sale of his Casa Malibu home, near Puerto Banus.
Sir Sean, 79, and his second wife Micheline Roquebrune, 81, have 30 days to pay the bond.
The investigation, codenamed ‘Goldfinger’, revealed that Connery and his wife had allowed for an illegal amount of construction on their former land.
The illegitimate arrangements were allegedly used to commit embezzlement, corruption, fraud, and money laundering.
The tax exile – who was knighted in 2000 – bought the beachfront mansion in 1975 before selling it for nine million euros in 1999.
