Shaken and stirred

AS if he wasn’t in enough trouble already.

Bond star Sir Sean Connery has now been linked to a company accused of committing a 1.6 million-euro fiscal fraud in Malaga’s Colinas de Limonar development.

The news comes after Connery, 79, and his second wife Micheline Roquebrune, 81, were ordered to pay 3.3 million euros in the so-called ‘Goldfinger’ case for illegal construction charges.

To make things worse, a Marbella judge who reviewed the Goldfinger case summary has described By the Sea S.L. – a separate company linked to Connery – as ‘opaque.’

Its founders were based in tax havens and are now untraceable.

Withdrawals from the company account coincided with the sale of apartments on the site of Connery’s former Casa Malibu home.

The curious timing has led to new suspicions although no formal allegations have been made.
