Animal rights groups want Mufti punished for illegal halal slaughter
Three of Poland's animal rights groups have filed complaints at a prosecutor's office after the country's Chief Mufti allegedly broke the law by slaughtering a lamb without prior stunning.
Chief Mufti Tomasz Miskiewicz has admitted to carrying out the 'ritual slaughter' on Tuesday in the village of Bohoniki, north east Poland, in spite of a state-imposed ban on the practice.
"I will not evade responsibility for this and I am at the disposal of prosecutors," he has said.
