Tel Aviv Enforces Ban on Raising Pigs and Sale of Pork Products

Enforcement began today in the Tel Aviv area of a law banning the raising of pigs or the sale of pork products following approval by the Ministry of the Interior.

The law, which outlaws possession and sale of pork throughout the Tel Aviv area, permits special inspectors to enter any place at any time for enforcement purposes but search of private premises requires a magistrate’s order. The old law permitted sales in certain areas. The law sets a period of 42 days for winding up all pork business.
