Malaga (Spain), Oct 8 (IANS/EFE) Former ‘James Bond’ actor Sean Connery and his wife have been ordered to give statements in a court in Spain in a municipal corruption case, judicial officials said.

Connery and his wife owned and stayed in a chalet – a house built in a Swiss design – in Marbella during their vacations till 1999, and a four-storey building built in 2005 is now located where the chalet once stood.
