Halal (Muslim) and kosher (Jewish) food in Greece
A recent law made permission for production of food products in these two ways.
But on review, the Hellenic court annulled the permits because existing Greek law requires anesthesia for animals slaughtered, and said the halal and kosher production methods were 'inhumane' because they killed animals without first removing sensation to pain.
In recent years, 5 northern and eastern European nations have banned ritual slaughter.
