    The Polish Prime Minister has established a special committee as part of his ongoing efforts to overturn a national ban on shechita.

    The Polish Ambassador to the European Union, Marek Prawda, stated this morning that Prime Minister Donald Tusk had consented to the formation of the group after Poland’s parliament last week defeated his attempt to legally protect religious slaughter.

    The committee will be led by Polish Minister Michał Jan Boni, who is in charge of national religious matters, and will also include the General Director of the European Jewish Association (EJA), Rabbi Menachem Margolin.

    Mr Boni has already asked for legal advice on whether the ban contradicts a constitutional law which prohibits any violation of freedom of religion and worship of minority groups in the country.
