    US presidential candidate Donald Trump's golf resort in Aberdeenshire, Scotland is being sued over alleged violations of national privacy laws by the resort’s staff, media reported Monday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) Rohan Beyts filed a lawsuit seeking the equivalent of $4,000 from Trump International Golf Club Scotland, claiming that while she was hiking near the club, an employee photographed her without her knowledge or consent, in violation of UK privacy laws, the Guardian newspaper reported.

    Beyts said she brought the suit after her request for an apology from the club was rebuffed.

    According to the report, the club has used closed-circuit television cameras for surveillance of its premises without proper authorization from the Information Commissioner’s Office in the United Kingdom.
