‘No smoking’ in Dubai malls
Posted by Admin on November 25, 2007
While I’m on my way to lunch today in Deira City Center one Indian is apprehended by the mall’s security personnel in smoking in not designated area.
So to all kabayans who are heading to Dubai soon, let me remind you that there’s a law prohibiting smoking in public places here in Dubai.
Shopping malls become smoke-free last September 15, 2007, with the authority to refer smokers who flout the smoking ban to the police and municipality officials.Under the regulations set by Dubai Municipality, smoking in shopping malls is prohibited except at designated smoking areas, which have to be approved by the municipality’s Clinic and Community Health section. Malls also have to post notices and have staff on hand to inform their patrons of the smoking ban…MAg-ingat kabayan!!!
