Apparently unhappy after being issued summons by the Ministry of Health for puffing cigarette at the bus terminal, Medan Jaya, Moehamad Razief posted screenshot of the said summon to Bintulu INFO group.

He didn’t get much emphaty. A comment by Facebook user Boy Mohd Fairos, rightly pointed to him that a bus terminal or ‘public transport terminals (pdf)‘ under the Laws is a designated non-smoking area enacted since 2004.

Moehamad Razief wasn’t the first to have been fined for puffing in public spaces in Bintulu.

On April 10, several smokers were also fined by the Ministry for similar offences.

Smoker beware! Those caught smoking in public areas designated at non-smoking areas (see below) risk being fined RM250 minimum and worst if found guilty by a Court could end up in jail for two years and fines RM10,000.
