Yesterday, the Highest Court of Poland has estimated that the Polish legislative ban of non-stunned slaughter was against the Constitution. The ban was introduced in 2013, and was challenged by the Union of Jewish Religious Communities.
Following Sweden and Poland, last week, Denmark outlawed slaughter without preliminary stunning. The prohibition is applying up from this week on all the Danish territory. Answering to the protest of the jewish and muslim community, Dan Joergensen, Danish Minister and also former MEP said “Animal rights come before religion”.
