Cafe in Greek Parliament fined for breaking anti-smoking law

The owner of the cafe in Greece’s Parliament has been fined 600 euros for breaking the anti-smoking law.

A check revealed that the cafe did not have a complaints book where non-smokers could record instances of people smoking in the establishment.

The check by health and safety officers from Attica’s regional authority was ordered after complaints about smoking at the cafe.

The government pledged recently to toughen up checks on whether stores are abiding by the anti-smoking law, which has been effective since September 2010.
