Former Denny director Giovanni Di Stefano has claimed that bond legend Sir Roger Moore wanted to prove his fraud trial.
The fake lawyer says that the late 007 icon was denied a chance to speak on his behalf in court.
He claims to have been friends with Sir Roger, who died in 2017 and therefore cannot confirm the friendship.
Self-proclaimed “Devil’s Lawyer” de Stefano, 66, is currently in jail after pleading guilty to fraud in 2014.
A statement from D’Stefano online stated: “Dr. David Thomas QC, Roger Moore (007) and many others wanted to testify in my favor but were denied.”
After Sir Roger’s death, de Stefano said: “I am very saddened to hear the news of Roger Moore, a true gentleman. I will never forget anything or our wonderful conversation we had together.”
The mad Italian says he is now a political prisoner who has served his sentence.
It came as a court heard last month that he would not be released because he had not returned لاکھ 250,000.
De Stefano told Southwark Crown Court judges eight years ago that he was involved in a series of frauds with victims that he thought he was a true legal professional.
He was convicted of fraud, embezzlement, and money laundering and sentenced to 14 years in prison.
Mr Justice Swift heard how a Crown Court judge had ordered confiscation in 2014, under the terms of the 2002 Crimes Act.
De Stefano was asked to pay 2.5 2.5 million or face an additional six years in prison. He did not pay and will not be released until May 2023.
He made the notorious claim that he represented Serb militants and Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
In 2003, he became director of Dundee and attracted Italian international Fabrizio Raonelli to the club.
But the club quickly became financially strapped and left five months later.
