Halal certification, terror groups & the meat industry

Halal certification, terror groups & the meat industry

Last week a report by the Courier Mail stated:

“Western Meats Exports Managing Director, Campbell McPhee – one of the biggest employers in the Charleville region said Senator Hanson’s claims that halal certification is funding terrorism groups was incorrect and was an important part of his business.”

The article also contains a number of other uniformed or deceptive comments. Read it here: http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/queensland-government/pauline-hanson-halal-certification-terror-claims-rubbished-by-abattoir-manager/news-story/7878cbe30a189a96c78b0766574b7878
