Punished for selling ciggiesto youngsters
Six tobacco retailers have been punished by the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) for selling cigarettes to underaged youth.
One of them would no longer be allowed to sell tobacco products. The outlet’s licence was revoked for selling cigarettes to a 14-year-old in school uniform. The remaining five will be suspended for six months.
Anyone caught selling tobacco products to those below 18 can be fined up to S$5,000 (RM12,480) for the first offence, and up to S$10,000 (RM24,960) subsequently. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
