Lambooij's slaughter study OK

Wageningen UR does not need to clarify the scientific value and sources for its study of slaughter without stunning. The court in Arnhem sees no reason to doubt the independence or accuracy of the study, the district court announced today.

The case was brought by NIK, the organization of the Jewish communities in the Netherlands, and NIHS, the Jewish community of Amsterdam. In interlocutory proceedings, they demanded clarification as according to them the report contained inaccuracies. The study in question is Bert Lambooij's research and literature study about ritual slaughter and animal welfare.
