Lebanon adopts tobacco control law

17 Aug 2011

"After working for several years on passing this law, IndyACT, Tobacco Free Initiative and AUB tobacco control research group would like to congratulate all Lebanese for the passing of the new law," said Wael Hmaidan, executive director of IndyACT – The League of Independent Activists.

"In short, we were able to get all our demands in, including a last minute adjustment to the penalties section," he added.

The law includes fines for business owners if they fail to prevent their costumers from smoking, and for individuals who violate the ban.
