Party for the Animals calls for camera surveillance in all European slaughterhouses
Party for the Animals’ MEP Anja Hazekamp has submitted a request to the European Commission for mandatory camera surveillance in all slaughterhouses in Europe to better protect animals at slaughter. According to Hazekamp, the cameras should complement the existing surveillance in slaughterhouses rather than replace it.
The Party for the Animals wants serious wrongdoings like the one that was recently observed in Belgium’s biggest slaughterhouse to be avoided in the future. Several European countries, including France and the Netherlands, are already working on increased camera surveillance in slaughterhouses. Hazekamp wants this measure to be implemented in all other EU countries as well.
