Referendum : Provading Lawyers For Animals

507

“İşkence edilen
hayvanların sesi olun!

Hayvanların da adalete hakkı var.

Kötü muammele gören hayvanların mahkemelerde sesi olun.

Hayvan(-ları) Koruma Avukatları, polis ve belediyeleri, hayvanlara işkencenin söz konusu olduğu durumlarda, desteklemektedir.

Hayvan(-ları) Koruma Avukatı…

Evet!”

 

Animal rights groups had proposed the move, saying that without lawyers to argue the animals’ case, many instances of cruelty were going unpunished.

But the measure was rejected by around 70% of voters in a referendum.

Opponents had argued that Switzerland did not need more legislation. The government had opposed the idea.

Voters were almost certainly swayed by worries about how much such a system might cost taxpayers, and by objections from Switzerland’s farmers already struggling with reduced subsidies and falling milk prices.

Switzerland already has some of the strictest animal welfare legislation in the world.

Pigs, budgies, goldfish and other social animals cannot be kept alone; horses and cows must have regular exercise outside in summer and winter; and dog owners have to take training courses to learn how to care for their pets.

Hayvan avukatına ret

Hayvan avukatı atanması için yapılan referandumda “hayır” sonucu çıktı.

Hayvanların dünyanın en koruyucu yasalarından faydalandığı ülke olan İsviçre’de ateşli bir kampanyanın ardından düzenlenen halk oylamasında, yüzde 70,5 ile “hayır” oyu çıkarken, “evet” oyu yüzde 29,5’ta kaldı.

İsviçre Hayvanları Koruma Derneği tarafından gündeme getirilen referandumda, İsviçre’deki 26 kantonun tamamında, hayvanlar için bir avukatlık müessesesi kurulmasının zorunlu olması isteniyordu. Bu zorunlu uygulama, 1992’den beri sadece kuzeydeki Zürih kantonunda yürürlükte bulunuyor.

Referandumun sonucunda, İsviçreliler, hükümetin ve sağ partilerin tavsiyesine uyarak, bu konuda 2008’den beri yürürlükte bulunan yasanın yeterli olduğu sonucuna vardılar.

Bu yasaya göre, sahipleri, örneğin lepistes balıklarını canlı olarak tuvalete atamıyorlar. Yasa, sahiplerine, hamster ya da muhabbet kuşu gibi “sosyal” hayvanların bir partner ile birlikte yaşamalarını sağlamalarını zorunlu kılınıyor. Yasa, hayvanlara kötü muamele durumunda, kantonların ceza davası açmalarını da öngörüyor.
