Implementation will not be immediately forthcoming except in swanky hotels patronised by pc posters on trip advisor.com.

Wasn't this law bought out some time last year?

Does this mean they are actually going to start enforcing it? I can't see it lasting long.

Yea this is old news and I haven't seen any evidence of it being enforced yet, and I highly doubt it will be...except, as table42 said, in the more upmarket hotels and restaurants. [

They are too busy enforcing the law that requires motorist to wear helmets. When that's fully operational, they will move onto the no smoking laws.

Maybe Duncan, but I think the stakes have been raised and they will focus on more stringent measures.

"The Council of Ministers yesterday (May 4th) approved a sub-decree prohibiting smoking or tobacco usage in public places and put in place fines for offending individuals and businesses.

The sub-decree, which comes 11 months after the law on tobacco control was passed by the National Assembly, bans the consumption of tobacco products at the workplace and public areas"

I think this one will work as well as the law about not pissing in public.

Didn't they pass a law about not selling alcohol to anyone under 21 at the same time ?
