Actor Sean Connery in Spanish Property probe

MADRID — A Spanish news network says former James Bond star Sean Connery will be questioned over a real estate deal.
Cadena Ser and other media outlets say Connery and wife Micheline Roquebrune will be called to a court in coastal Marbella over matters related to the sale of an area estate.
For 20 years Connery vacationed at his lavish property, Malibu, before selling it in 1998. After the sale, a block of 70 apartments was built on the spot.
Madrid and Marbella lawyers Diaz-Bastien & Truan — who media reports Friday said represented the Hollywood actor — told The Associated Press their offices were raided Wednesday by Treasury inspectors, but declined to confirm if Connery was a client.
Neither the Marbella court nor the Treasury department would comment.
