Judge Orders Sean Connery To Pay Bond

Sat 20th Nov 2010

A Spanish judge has ordered Sean Connery to pay part of a 55 million Euro bond as part of the ongoing money-laundering and property fraud investigation he has been linked with over the last few months.

Judge Ricardo Puyol named the actor as one of many who must deposit the combined sum as surety in the investigation into a number of property deals, including the 1998 sale of Connery's beachfront villa near Marbella.

The actor made 6 million Euros from the sale of the villa but allegedly failed to pay an undisclose sum in taxes to the local authorities. The property was later developed into 72 luxury apartments, despite having planning permission for just five houses. The development were said to have yielded a 60 million Euro profit.

Connery was given ten days to pay his contribution to the bond or risk the impounding of his personal assets, according to the Daily Telegraph newspaper.

Last month the actor failed to appear to testify at a court session in Marbella, citing age and health issues, which made him unable to travel from his home in Barbados.
