Swiss parliament to vote on kosher meat imports

Tags: ,


The Swiss Federal Assembly is to vote on the possibility of banning the import of kosher meat into the country.
The bill, which was introduced to the Swiss parliament in June, would make it illegal to import any meat slaughtered in what the law would deem to be an inhumane fashion. This would include both kosher and halal meat.
According to the Tages Anzeiger newspaper, there has been strong opposition to the bill.

Switzerland has the world’s longest-standing ban on religious slaughter, which was brought into effect in 1893 after a plebiscite vote. Although the import of religiously slaughtered meat was not banned at the time, there have been several subsequent attempts to do so, most recently in 2003.
