Belgium's Flemish Region to impose limitations on ritual slaughter in '19
Belgium's Flemish Region will impose new limitations on the ritual slaughter of animals without stunning in 2019.
Ben Weyts, the animal welfare minister of the Flemish Region — one of three autonomous states that make up the federal kingdom of Belgium — made the announcement Wednesday in the Flemish parliament. The new limitations would be launched on Jan. 1, 2019.
Their precise nature has not yet been made public nor finalized pending talks with representatives of the Jewish and Muslim communities, the Gazet van Antwerpen daily newspaper reported Thursday.
