Lawyers have lodged a second lawsuit against an incoming ban on non-stunned meat in an area of Belgium, saying the country’s Jews were having their religious freedoms “trampled on”.
The latest legal action, citing human rights, was submitted by the Belgian Federation of Jewish Organizations (CCOJB), the Belgian section of the European Jewish Congress and the World Jewish Congress.
It follows a decision by the Parliament in Flanders to ban the non-stun slaughter of animals from 2019, affecting the country’s small Jewish and Muslim communities.
