The Selangor Islamic Religious Council (Majlis Agama Islam Selangor, MAIS) had banned four fake Halal certificates in restaurants, cafe, hotels and food courts, which have been issued by six private companies.
The four private Halal certificates were banned as they carry misleading information on the Islamic Shariah Law, whilst MAIS had never recognized these private issuers before. Most importantly, the six private issuers have never operated the inspection process for the applicants.
THREE months will be given to the local Halal business and service providers to reapply for JAKIM Halal certification, or else the offenders will be liable to a fine of RM3000 or to 2 years imprisonment or to both under Section 12 (b) of the Syariah Crimes Enactment Selangor 1995.
