Smoking is Against the Law

Bali Starts Portable Courts to Bring Instant Justice to People Caught Smoking in Public Areas

(9/11/2013) 

The Province of Bali has introducing a program of "portable" courts to process violators of no smoking rules in public areas
 
A law ratified in 2011 Bans smoking in most public places.
 
The head of Disease Control and Environmental Health for the Province of Bali, Dr. Gede Wira Sunetra, explained that the in situ court concept is being done to hasten the punishment phase for those caught breaking the law by smoking in non-smoking zones.
 
During the test phase of the "mobile court" program a total of 19 people received “quick justice” after they were caught smoking in restaurants, schools and public areas.
 
The anti-smoking law in Bali provides for maximum fines of Rp. 50,000 or 3 months in prison.
