The following news is from the Parliamentary Assembly News, Vosizneias.com and Matzav.comm posted on October 3, 2015.

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe passed the following resolution which guarantees circumcision and the right to do religious slaughter in Europe: "Religious communities should be able to exercise the right to freedom of religion “without impediment and without discrimination” and to practise their faith publicly and freely in accordance with their own rites."
"The council recommended that states require circumcisions to be performed by people trained to do so, in appropriate medical and health conditions, and that parents be informed of any medical risk to their child."
"The resolution also addresses ritual slaughter, stating that PACE is not convinced it should be banned and recommending following the French or German model of protecting animals from unnecessary suffering while respecting religious freedom."
