Bayan-Position Statement by AUB-TCRG,TFI, and IndyACT

​​As a group of researchers, activists and civic society, we are following on the discussions conducted by the committee of administration and Justice of the draft law of Tobacco Control. Based on what these discussions had reached so far, we released a very important statement/bayan in the media regarding some three main points in the law:

  1. No exemptions of smoking areas in indoor public places should be allowed (including hotels)
  2. The article related to the “Health Pictorial Warnings” is strongly recommended to be written and explained in the text of the law rather than turning it into an applied decree (مرسوم تطبيقي)
  3. There should not a grace period of one year. We are already too late in law implementation.
