THERE have been 54 offenders in the Western Division fined under the Tobacco Control Decree for the first five months, says Tobacco Control Unit head Aminiasi Tavui.

Mr Tavui said the figures had decreased substantially from when the decree was introduced in 2010.

"People are now aware of the consequences they will face if caught smoking in a prohibited smoking area or found contravening the requirements and obligations as stipulated under the Tobacco Control Decree and Regulation," he said.

"We are now working closely with other places in the Western Division to make them smoke-free."

So far, Suva and Nadi have been declared smoke-free.

"Most people really appreciate the idea of a smoke-free town as it protects the lives of second-hand smokers and their right to breathe fresh air."
