Big penalties for illicit smoking in Bali

| January 15, 2014

People caught breaking no-smoking regulations in public places in Bali could find themselves on the wrong end of an IDR50 million (US$4,000) fine or a jail term of three months, according to a story.

The story said that the Smoke-free Areas Provincial Law No.7, 2013, was now in effect in Bali.

The regulations stipulate that tobacco smoking is not allowed in public places in Bali, including places of education, work places, places of worship, recreation areas or areas frequented by children.

The prohibition applies also to public transport, medical centers and sporting venues.

Businesses and those in charge of public places affected by the new regulations are being urged to create well-ventilated smoking areas.
