Bill gets tough on smokers

SMOKERS in Slovakia will be fined Sk8,000 (€211) for lighting up in the wrong place if a new anti-smoking law is approved in parliament.

According to the Health Ministry, which prepared the new law, smoking in restaurants and bars that serve food will only be permitted in a separate, designated smoking room, the Pravda daily reported.

If passed, the law will take effect in July this year.
