European Jewish Parliament writes to Slovenian Ministry of Agriculture
Slovenia’s National Assembly is set to vote on a proposed ban on all ritual slaughter, which the European Union member country’s government recently submitted for approval.
Estonia, meanwhile, has reportedly imposed new restrictions on its already stringent slaughter policy.
Dr. Igor Vojtic, a member of the executive board of Slovenia's Jewish community, told JTA that the proposed ban came in animal welfare amendments which the government adopted last month.
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.
