And a retributive New Year

| January 3, 2014

Malaysians can be jailed for buying illicit cigarettes under new regulations that took effect on Wednesday, according to a story in The Star.

Amendments to the Control of Tobacco Product Regulations 2004 stipulate that it is not only illegal to sell illicit cigarettes; it is also illegal to buy them.

Under the amendments gazetted in June, the buyer, just like the seller, faces a maximum fine of RM10,000, up to two years in jail, or both.
