A judge has given the green light for a legal challenge against Scottish Ministers over their failure to seek an order to investigate Donald Trump's $60m purchase of the Turnberry golf course.

Campaigning organisation Avaaz yesterday won permission for a judicial review in a hearing at the Court of Session.

Lord Sandison gave permission for the case to proceed, highlighting "the general and continuing public importance of the legal questions raised", among other things.

Nick Flynn, legal director at Avaaz, commented: "This means Scottish Ministers will now be challenged in court over their ongoing failure to seek an Unexplained Wealth Order (UWO) to investigate Trump's suspicious Turnberry purchase.

"Armed with a proper understanding of the law, we hope that ministers agree that Trump’s purchase demands the transparency that only a UWO can bring. Scotland’s reputation for upholding the rule of law and combating money laundering depends on it."

In April 2019, Avaaz sent Scottish Ministers a briefing on the suspicion surrounding Trump’s cash purchase of Turnberry in 2014.
