From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Horse meat fraud man fined £42,000

NETHERLANDS: An appeals court upheld the conviction today of a man who sold horse meat labelled as Halal beef to French traders.

Jan Fasen was convicted in 2012 for buying horse meat from Brazil and Mexico and claiming it was beef slaughtered according to Muslim dietary law.

He had been handed nine months in prison, reduced on appeal to a six-month suspended sentence and €50,000 (£42,000) fine.

  1. Pork found in kids’ halal lamb burgers

    Leicester City Council has pulled halal lamb burgers from schools after tests showed some contained pork.

    Assistant Mayor Vi Dempster said: “I am appalled by this situation. It is disgraceful that none of us can have confidence in the food we eat.”

    The decision followed DNA tests on frozen burgers made in January at Doncaster firm Paragon Quality Foods.
