A French halal supermarket has been shut down for not selling alcohol and pork.
The Good Price mini-market in Colombes, Paris was threatened with closure last year for violating the terms of its lease which required it to be a ‘general food store.’
But owner Soulemane Yalcin refused to stock alcohol and pork and a court has now ruled that his rental lease must be cancelled.
The court of Nanterre decided on Monday that he failed to meet ‘the needs of all inhabitants.’
The ruling came after locals complained they could no longer get a broad range of products after the halal supermarket replaced a regular supermarket.
Last year Nicole Goueta, the mayor of Colombes, visited the store to urge Mr Yalcin to begin selling alcohol and pork.
