Flemish Minister Apologizes for Comments Regarding Kosher Slaughter

FSWC Reports:


Flemish Minister for Animal Welfare Ben Weyts has advised the European Jewish Association of his intention to "enforce in all aspects" Belgian law facilitating the practice of ritual slaughter. 

Despite having previously called for a total ban on the practice in Belgium in televised comments, Weyts offered his full apologies in a letter to EJA General Director Rabbi Menachem Margolin Wednesday for the "misunderstanding" which prompted the public backlash to his call.
