Sean Connery Doesn't Show In Spanish Court

| Filed under: Legal Matters

sean connery no show to testify in court

Although he was supposed to testify in a money laundering investigation, Sean Connery failed to show for his testimony in a Spanish court on Friday.

Connery, along with his wife Micheline, were set to take the stand, but the actor sent a letter informing the court that he could not travel due to age and unspecified health problems.

The two purchased a $8.4 million home in Marbella in 1998, but allegedly did not pay $2 million to the local authority. The property was demolished and a 72-apartment complex was put in it's place, despite that they did not have permission to do so. The condos were said to have earned a $75 million profit.

A court worker said:

Mr Connery has informed the court in writing he won't be coming today. He has cited health reasons and his advanced age and said he has not been able to prepare the journey in time.

The court is now considering its next move. The emission of an international arrest warrant is a possibility but a remote one. The most likely scenario is that the investigating magistrate will make a formal request through a rogatory commission to question Sir Sean at his home.

The logistics of this will become clearer next week. It could be that a delegation goes to the Bahamas to quiz him. The other option would be that a team based locally is tasked to interview him.

Sean and Micheline deny any allegations of money laundering.

    well he's not Roman Polanski!

    Spain has shifty and very crooked money grabbing schemes when it comes to foreigners buying real estate. I don't blame Connery for foregoing the charade — it's a BS money grab by a very crooked authority.
