Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg has been terminated as the director and controller of one of ex-President Donald Trump’s Scotland golf courses. The news comes after the executive and company were charged in a 15-count indictment.
A notice filed on Thursday at Companies House, the UK registry of private companies, showed that Weisselberg had been terminated as a director of Trump International Golf Club Scotland, a holding company that owns Trump’s Aberdeenshire golf resort, Trump International Golf Links.
He was also terminated as a “person with significant control,” which gives an individual influence over how a company is run.
Trump’s sons Eric and Donald Jr. remain directors of the company, while Donald Jr. is now the sole person with significant control. Donald Trump himself resigned as a director from the company in January 2017, when he became president, Companies House records show.
Weisselberg was initially appointed as one of four directors of the company in 2006, when Trump first purchased the land in Aberdeenshire, which he subsequently turned into a luxury golf resort.
Eric remains the sole director of Trump’s other Scottish golf company, Golf Recreation Scotland.
The termination follows a spate of criminal charges against Weisselberg and the Trump Organization in New York. On July 1, prosecutors in the Manhattan District Attorney’s office announced a 15-count indictment alleging he participated in a wide-ranging tax fraud scheme that involved dodging taxes on $1.7 million of personal income.
Weisselberg and attorneys for the Trump Organization pleaded not guilty to the charges. The special grand jury investigation into the Trump Organization’s finances is ongoing. Prosecutors are seeking to “flip” Weisselberg into cooperating in the investigation, which is also examining whether the company misrepresented its finances in order to pay little in taxes while obtaining favorable rates for insurance and bank loans.
Attorneys for Weisselberg and a representative for the Trump Organization did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment about the CFO’s termination from his role at Trump International Golf Club Scotland.
