Jan F. has to pay 2.6 million to the Netherlands state. That is the amount the court in Breda calculated he earned from selling horse meet as beef, AD reports.
Between 2006 and 2009 F. ordered horse meat from Argentina. He took it in Breda, where he butchered it and sold it as halal slaughtered beef through his own company Draap. Incidentally Draap is the Dutch word for horse - paard - spelled backwards. His main customers were in France.
