Sir Sean Connery has landed in a court row after being summoned to a Swiss court over an alleged 50-million-pound scam.

The James Bond actor was said to have received diamonds and property as collateral for the loans he lent to businessman Jean René in the 1970s.

The 78-year-old apparently sold the jewels and some property after falling out with Rene, who passed away in 2002, reports the Sun.

And now, Rene’s family were holding their claim that the Hollywood veteran owed them money.

Swiss judges revealed that “police representatives” had paid a visit to the star at his Bahamas residence.
