Caught in the act

Some Ven­dors were caught in the act of sell­ing loose cig­a­rette sticks in Suva.

Now is the time to be vig­i­lant and face the law for breach­ing the To­bacco Act, fine of $1000 within 21 days to pay or face le­gal ac­tion. It’s been an is­sue near bus sta­tions where peo­ple stand to smoke and also makes it hard for other com­muters who use the plat­form.

De­spite the chal­lenges they face daily; hats off to those of­fi­cers who are per­form­ing their du­ties.

I sup­pose there are oth­ers who are com­mit­ting the same of­fence es­pe­cially small snack ven­dors and also some peo­ple who roam around do­ing the same thing.

Let it be a warn­ing. Re­mem­ber sell­ing of loose cig­a­rette sticks or rolls are pro­hib­ited un­der the To­bacco Act, and breach­ing it will in­cur penal­ties like the $1000 fines.
