Laos slaps heavy fines on tobacco rule violators

Producers and importers of tobacco products will be penalised with large fines and additional measures if the packages that contain their products do not carry the required instructions and health warnings, according to a new regulation.
The health warnings must comprise both images and words.
Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith recently signed a government decree imposing fines and other measures against those violating the law and regulations on tobacco control.
