Belgian court rules shechita bans unconstitutional

June 29, 2016: The Arutz7

"A constitutional court in Belgium ruled on Wednesday that traditional Jewish shechita is permitted under Belgian law and will be allowed to continue unimpeded."
"'Restrictions on kosher shechita', the judge ruled, 'contradict basic human rights laws and religious rights in Belgium.'"
"In recent months some members of the Flemish parliament have proposed bans on kosher shechita, prohibiting exceptions to a Belgian law requiring animals be stunned before being slaughters. Such a move would effectively outlaw kosher shechita, which cannot be performed while an animal is stunned."
