Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg retained a senior position at one of Donald Trump's golf resorts in Scotland despite being removed from multiple positions across the Trump business empire.

As of July 15, Weisselberg was still listed as a a "person with significant control" over Golf Recreation Scotland, the parent company of Trump's Turnberry resort on the southwestern coast of Scotland.

He remained listed despite being removed from a slew of roles across Trump's business entities in the wake of a 15-count indictment against him and the company.

His role at Golf Recreation Scotland appeared on documents filed with Companies House, the UK registry of private companies.

He was last week eliminated as a director of Trump International Golf Links, which operates Trump's second Scottish course in Aberdeenshire.

Insider has asked the Trump Organization to comment on Weisselberg's continued role at Golf Recreation Scotland.

The Washington Post reported Monday that Weisselberg would remain at the Trump Organization, but may have been removed from corporate filings to avoid questions "regulators, lenders, or vendors" about his presence.

The position at Golf Recreation Scotland gives Weisselberg voting rights, influence over the firm's trustees, and the ability to appoint and terminate directors at the company. The other person with significant control is Donald Trump Jr. Eric Trump remains the sole director of the company.

The Manhattan district attorney's office announced a 15-count indictment against Weisselberg and the Trump Organization on July 1, alleging that he sought to conceal his and other executives' salaries to dodge taxes, including on $1.7 million of his personal income. Weisselberg has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The charges come as part of a wider criminal probe into Donald Trump's business and financial dealings. Weisselberg - one of Trump's closest confidantes - has reportedly resisted attempts by prosecutors to make him flip on his boss and provide evidence against him.

Last week, the Trump Organization filed in Florida to remove Weisselberg from leadership positions at 40 other subsidiaries, The Wall Street Journal first reported.

It said Trump's sons Eric and Donald Jr. or Donald Trump himself are now in charge of those entities.

He had also resigned on June 25 from multiple other positions with Trump Organization's subsidiaries in documents filed to New Jersey regulators, The Washington Post reported.

The Post identified 54 subsidiaries from which Weisselberg had resigned in total, Insider's Jacob Shamsian reported.
