The dubious meat seized by the Halal Food Control Division (BKMH) should be given to non-profit organisations or non-governmental organisations (NGOs) as food for animals under their shelter, said Legislative Council member Yang Berhormat Khairunnisa binti Haji Ash’ari during the 17th Legislative Council session yesterday.

Minister of Religious Affairs Yang Berhormat Pehin Udana Khatib Dato Paduka Seri Setia Ustaz Haji Awang Badaruddin bin Pengarah Dato Paduka Haji Awang Othman in response said the dubious meat seized by the enforcement agencies during inspections or operations are used as evidence during court trials.

He said the meat is stored at a location in Bandar Seri Begawan.
