Connery to be questioned in real estate probe

MADRID The former James Bond star and his wife Micheline Roquebrune will be called to a court in coastal Marbella over matters related to the sale of an area estate, according to Cadena Ser and other media outlets.

Connery vacationed at his lavish property in Malibu for 20-years, before selling it in 1998. A block of 70 apartments was built on the spot after the property was sold.

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.
