Evidence of live export breaches in Jordan.

In June 2013 Animals Australia investigators travelled to Jordan after receiving information about the deliberate, widespread and systemic on-selling of Australian sheep occurring in breach of Australia's live export rules.

Over a number of days evidence was collected that showed Australian sheep being offered for sale from 26 roadside stalls and markets — in direct contravention of the Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System (ESCAS) which dictates that animals must only go to approved abattoirs.

The evidence also documents an Australian sheep being dragged into a butcher shop amongst these roadside stalls and having his throat cut while fully conscious.

Animals Australia immediately lodged a formal complaint and all of the evidence with the Department of Agriculture.

UPDATE February 2014 — Government investigation finds major non-compliance with ESCAS. Read more »
