UK woman who urinated on Trump golf course loses case

Katie RamirezApr 06, 2017

The case against her was dropped but Ms Beyts turned the tables on the golf course staff by taking a case against them, saying they were in breach of the Data Protection Act.

Ms Beyts told the court on Monday that she had gone walking with a friend in April past year and had to pass through the Trump International Golf Club to get access to the beach.

A greenkeeper denied filming Beyts but said he took photos because he thought she was committing a "criminal act".

Online Chat: DJ Kachman, the Veterans Affairs Department's director of mobile and security technology transformation lead, on April 10, at 1 p.m. But a judge ruled that while staff should not have filmed her, the distress she experienced was not related to the golf course's failure to register under the data Privacy Act.

At the time of the incident TIGCS was not registered under the UK's data protection laws, despite operating an extensive CCTV system and holding records on thousands of guests, their employees and suppliers. He added that her evidence showed she was clearly distressed. The disingenuous claim by Rohan Beyts was a perversion of the truth and nothing more than a poor attempt at self-publicity in an effort to garner support for her anti-Trump, anti-business propaganda. "That was not the case".

She thanked her supporters worldwide and asked if she had a message for Mr Trump, added: "My message for Donald Trump is treat people with respect and dignity, and you will get treated with respect and dignity".

She appealed for him to donate to her fundraising campaign raising money for the charitable work of her lawyers from Govan Law Centre.

After the ruling, Beyts said she was "very relieved".

She said: "The case is about my feelings and it is about not being bullied".

"Unbeknown to her she was under surveillance by distance of about 230 metres by a [group of three staff]".

"I took her picture for evidence that she was urinating in a public place".

He said: "It seems somewhat ironic to demand compensation for a breach of privacy in such a public way". She in turn launched a claim for damages against Trump International.

A worker had, she claimed, "secretly filmed" her urinating when she was caught short at the Menie estate course.

She told the court that she later discovered that the complaint against her had been made by Sarah Malone, an Executive Vice President of Trump International, who is based in Scotland.
