Back to Make Ritual Animal Slaughter illegal in Malta

Reply from MRRA

Dear Mr. Caruana,

I would like to inform you that we do have the facility to perform a Halal slaughter at the Civil Abattoir in Marsa. Still, we strictly follow EU regulations as regards to animal welfare and therefore, the animal is first stunned prior to the Halal slaughter.

The Halal slaughter is performed by a Muslim and the person is certified and approved by the Imam. The quantity of Halal slaughtered animals is quite small but still it could be traced by the label and kill number / date.

Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the undersigned.

Manuel Schembri
