Connery faces questioning over the sale of his former home in Marbella in 1999 for 5.5 million pounds. There was planning permission to build five homes there, but 72 flats went up — netting a 45-million-pound profit. Spanish tax officials say Connery, who denies any wrongdoing, is linked to the development firm and that they are owed 2.3 million pounds.
