The embassy had also provided the department with standard operating procedures to help assault, corruption and promote human rights. Narat replied to the SOP’s that the department would have to “adjust to apply the international practices” and would apply them where applicable.

Switzerland Bans Cooking Lobsters Alive

by Admin on February 20, 2018

Switzerland will be the first country in the world from March 1st to adopt an animal dignity law that stops lobsters from being boiled alive. The provision is a part of a larger animal protection law that guides how certain species must be treated and socialized.
