Estonia To Change Law On Religious Slaughter

08/05/2012

 Estonia will change its law on religious slaughter, government officials have said.

The change is necessary because religious slaughter “does not take new scientific knowledge into account,” the head of Estonia's Animal Welfare Bureau, Sirje Jalakas, told JTA.

She added that “there is no plan to ban" kosher slaughter in Estonia. The change is being determined based on the 2010 DialRel report, Jalakas said.
