THE HEALTH Ministry is preparing a stricter law protecting non-smokers that harmonizes Slovak legislation with EU standards.
Among other novelties, the law is expected to introduce larger health warnings on cigarette packages, ban the "light" mark on tobacco products, and introduce stricter conditions for the smoking ban in restaurants, Slovak daily Sme reported.
The law is also expected to increases all sanctions 100%.
