    Sir Sean Connery ordered to pay millions in investigation into Spanish property fraud

    Sir Sean Connery is among those ordered to deposit a combined sum of €60 million (£51m) with a Spanish court investigating allegations of corruption surrounding his former mansion on the Costa del Sol.

    The James Bond star and his French born wife Micheline Roquebrune are among 26 people to be summoned by a Marbella court in connection with Operation Goldfinger, an investigation into alleged property fraud and money laundering.

    The investigation has uncovered apparent irregularities arising from the sale in 1998 of Casa Malibu, a Marbella property which the couple owned for 20 years, for euros 6.4m (pounds 5.6m).

    The local authority claims 72 luxury flats were built on the site following the sale of Casa Malibu, despite planning permission for only five family homes. The development yielded a euros 53m profit most of which was allegedly sent to tax havens abroad.

    So what is the real story here?

    Did Mr Connery simple sell his home to a third party developer and then move on.

    Did he sell his property to a development company he owned (or part owned) and then profited from the illegal build of all those flats.

    How has he been implicated in this corruption scandal?
