Lawyers warned not to flout smoking-ban law in court buildings

The Nicosia Bar Association has sent a letter to members warning them not to smoke inside court buildings after a one lawyer was reported to police for flouting the law.

The lawyer was reportedly smoking inside the court coffeeshop, and in rooms rented by the Bar Association that are used as a lawyers’ lounge within the district court buildings.

“Smoking is not allowed in the aforementioned rooms,” the association’s letter said.

It reminds them that according to the 2002 law on the protection of health – the smoking law – public buildings are non-smoking areas.

It also gives an exhaustive list of all the places smoking is not allowed, like government offices, hospitals, banks, schools, elevators, coffee shops and recreation centres.

“It is our request that you avoid smoking in the aforementioned places, unless you wish to do so at your own risk,” the letter warns.
