A butcher from the Swiss city of Zurich has been sentenced to six months in prison and a fine of 18,000 Swiss francs for having misled his Muslim customers.
For three years the butcher sold 3.1 tons of pork but informed his Muslim customers that it was halal slaughtered veal.
Food inspectors discovered the fraud during a regular check.
- If customers had known it was pork, they would not have bought it because Islam prohibits the consumption of this type of meat, the prosecutor in the case says.
The butcher has not only cheated his Muslim customers by lying about the meat, he has also earned good money from the fraud. Halal slaughtered veal is in fact much more expensive than regular pork, which is why the Swiss butcher earned good money from the false description.
Nobody died, nobody was injured or even ill. Yet superstition gives prison.
