Curfew for halal chicken offensive sticker protester

A man who attached offensive stickers to halal chicken in a supermarket has been given a four-week curfew.

Liam Edwards, 29, admitted racially aggravated criminal damage.

The van driver placed stickers on chickens at a Sainsbury’s store in Salford which read: “Beware halal is barbaric and funds terrorism”.

He insisted his protest was against the halal slaughter of animals rather than being racially prejudiced, Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court heard.

Edwards, from Salford, was filmed on CCTV cameras at the supermarket on Regent Road on 20 February with his girlfriend and two young children.

Staff became aware of the stickers on packs of chicken, worth £16.50, which could no longer be sold due to contamination concerns.
