Trader fined for selling horsemeat as halal beef
Disgraced meat trader Jan Fasen who knowingly sold horsemeat falsely labelled as Islamic halal beef to butchers in France was slapped with a €50,000 fine and handed a suspended prison sentence on Thursday.
A Dutch businessman under investigation in a Europe-wide probe into a horse-for-beef food scandal was given a suspended sentence and fined €50,000 on Thursday for selling horsemeat as Islamic halal-slaughtered beef in France.
A district court in Den Bosch on appeal ordered Jan Fasen, 63, to pay the 50,000 euro ($66,000) fine and also slapped him with a six-month sentence suspended for two years.
