Caught in the act
Neelz Singh, Lami
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.
