The prefectural unit of Chania announced last week its decision to intensify checks on catering outlets and other public places with the view to ensure that the non smoking regulations are not violated.

Fines of 50 – 500 are planned for smokers while the managers of establishments where smoking is allowed can be penalised with fines between 500 and 10000 euro

Chania prefecture reminded  residents, visitors  and businesses of their responsibility to protect the public from the effects of secondary smoking.
