It seems that the death of Scottish actor Sean Connery at the age of 90 opened the doors to problems for his widow from a wide door that is not easy for her to escape from at the age of 91.
Where Micheline Roquebrune, the widow of British actor Sean Connery, who died a few days ago at the age of 90 after a short struggle with illness, faces a prison sentence and a fine for fraud and tax evasion related to the sale of a house in Marbella, Spain, two decades ago.
According to the British newspaper “The Sun”, the Spanish authorities have warned Micheline Roquebron, 91, of their intention to file an indictment against her and raise the case to court, while the latter denies her involvement in a tax offense in Spain.
According to the sources of the British newspaper, the Spanish public prosecutor’s office is trying to contact the authorities of the Bahamas, where the artist’s widow lives.
Spanish sources told the newspaper, “Official requests to notify Michelin Roquebrune of the indictment and the court order against her were sent twice to the Bahamas, but the Spanish authorities have not received a response yet.”
The Spanish attorney general’s office suspects the Connery spouses have committed tax breaches around their Marbella mansion. Where in 1999 they sold this villa and demolished it, and a residential building was built in its place, in contravention of regulations. In this case, the representative’s lawyer, the mayor of Marbella, and six city council employees were indicted.
