For three years, a butcher in Switzerland who claimed to be halal was actually selling pork to devout Muslims. According to Morocco World News, the butcher sold Muslims 3.1 tons of pork without their knowledge.
The manager was sentenced to 6 months in jail and a fine of $18,000 francs for “fraud and misrepresentation.”
“If customers had known it was pork, they would not have bought it because Islam forbids the consumption of this type of meat,” said the prosecutor.
The teachings of Islam forbid Muslims from consuming pork products. The butcher made substantial profits from selling pork to Muslims, since pork is much cheaper than calf on the meat market.
