Polish PM says no plans to lift ban on kosher slaughter
Poland's Prime Minister Donald Tusk said he had no plans to reintroduce legislation to lift a ban on the production of kosher meat, despite mounting criticism from Israel and Jewish groups that it is harmful to Jews in Poland.


Polish lawmakers last week rejected a government-backed draft law that would have allowed slaughterhouses to produce meat in accordance with Jewish ritual law. The law's opponents said the practice, which has been halted since a constitutional court ruling last year, is cruel to livestock.  (Reuters)
